John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy star in the Touchstone Pictures comedy, Wild Hogs. Get the movie review right here!

Four middle-aged men take to the open road for one last hurrah in an attempt to spice up their boring, suburban lives. Find out if Wild Hogs is a flick you should check out or if it's better left for your boring 'rents.

Wild Hogs - Get Out on the Highway

Life for Doug (Tim Allen), Woody (John Travolta), Bobby (Martin Lawrence) and Dudley (William H. Macy) hasn't been quite as rock 'n roll as they'd like since settling into suburban bliss. The guys trudge away week in and week out at their respective jobs and get together once a week to ride around town on their motorcycles. Boring, huh? When Woody's seemingly perfect life starts to fall apart, he suggests to his pals that they pack up and hit the highway for a cross-country motorcycle trip that's sure to get all their engines revved up.

Wild Hogs - Looking for Adventure

Out on the road, the guys run into problem after problem like their tent catching fire, birds crashing into their faces and getting into a feud with a bike gang after "accidentally" burning down their bar. There's no shortage of testosterone-fueled comedy in this flick - almost everything that's supposed to be funny revolves around someone getting hurt or making a poo joke. If that sounds like your kind of comedy, you'll love Wild Hogs.

Wild Hogs - Crash and Burn

Despite its all-star cast, Wild Hogs doesn't offer much to its stars to work with. William H. Macy makes for a good computer geek, and you'll definitely be rooting for him to finally meet the girl of his dreams, but unless you're looking for a movie held together by nothing but lame jokes, you'll probably want to pass on Wild Hogs.

Wild Hogs - Bottom Line

Tim Allen adds yet another bad comedy to his career and three other Hollywood stars join him. Who knows? Your dad might really dig this slap-stick flick about middle-aged men trying to bond on a road trip. But chances are he'd rather go with you to see Bridge to Terabithia or The Astronaut Farmer.

    Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.

    Usually I see them wear our school uniform. But whenever they get a chance to wear any colored dress to school, they wear jeggings and sleeve-less/half-sleeved tops. And their HAIR, OMG! They do SO MANY STUPID STYLES, even when they wear their school uniform, their hair is just in SO MANY STYLES!!
