This film stars such names as Tim Allen, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, and William H. Macy. It's directed by Walt Becker and written by Brad Copeland. A group of friends from the suburbs take up a new sort of hobby. Each of them decide that they would like to become bikers in order to escape their current stressful lives of 9 to 5, as well as for personal reasons, such as Woody Stevens (John Travolta) whose wife had decided that she would like a divorce, leaving him bankrupt. It was upon his suggestion that he and his friends formed their very own biker group and named it Wild Hogs, in order for them to go on a motorcycle road trip to California. Living in the suburbs of society their whole lives, they realize that they're getting older and begin to long for the open road with a life of alternative freedoms. They end up going on a wild adventure of a lifetime where they encounter the dangers of the road. Said dangers include evading a flamboyant cop who would randomly pop up on their journeys and make for some comically awkward situations for the group, but also to avoid confrontations of the physical kind with true blue biker gangs like the Del Fuegos, a hardened band of leather-clad men whom end up tracking down the four suburbanites to a small town where they try and make a name for themselves as “hardened bikers” called the Wild Hogs. The reason for the Del Fuego's violent nature against the Wild Hogs is because their self-appointed leader, played by John Travolta, messed with the Del Fuego's bikes as they were parked outside of their favorite bar by setting them on fire and then driving back to the group of Wild Hogs whom promptly ran away, not completely aware of what Woody (Travolta) had done. While hiding and living out their lives for a few days in a new small town, the Wild Hogs begin to get comfortable with the townsfolk who mistake them for the Del Fuego, the group who had been terrorizing town folk for the longest time. This eventually leads to the inevitable confrontation that they had been avoiding, when they take on the Del Fuego in the end and save the towns folk from further harassment.
