  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In this testosterone filled comedy the members of the "Wild Hogs" suburbanite biker gang of four couch potatoin a mid-life crisis deicide to shirk their suits and ties and head out on a cross-country roadtrip looking for fun and adventure. While on their adventure, the weekend bikers soon cross paths with a authentic biker gang the Del Fuegos. The Hogs clash with the Del Fuegos in a biker grudge match with surprising results! (Stacey Pendry)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD shows good detail, but fleshtones often look burnt. Black levels and shadow delineation are both sufficient, but not perfect. Occasionally images can look a bit smeared, but overall sharpness is good. Minor edge enhancement is noticed, and pixilation can give images a digital look. (Danny Richelieu)
