The Good:

"With its clever premise and quartet of appealing comedic star turns, Wild Hogs is a step above the typical comedies rolling off the assembly lines of the major studios. "
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

The Bad:

"Jokes dying on the lips of these easy riders are hard to stomach. "
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"While each actor is talented in his own right, the on-screen friends' relationship is barely developed."

Laine Ewen, Premiere

"The gags are witless and surprisingly gross. The four actors, each accustomed to being at the center, never develop any rhythm, any chemistry, any anything."

Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
