The Christian Science Monitor is one of the first fish wraps out with a review of the new biker movie, "Wild Hogs".

Peter Rainer, the paper's film critic, pretty much picked it apart, ridiculed the pieces, and tossed it all in the trash. He gives it an "F"...
The subculture of weekend warrior bikers is such rich comic material that the ineptitude of "Wild Hogs" is doubly offensive. After all, it's not often that a subject this good comes along. The whole time I was watching "Wild Hogs" I kept putting together in my mind the movie I wanted to see. Not a good sign.
Who is he trying to kid, anyways?

I already know film critics are going to barf at this movie.

The reason why I'm going to watch it is because those of us who ride cruisers, and make them our lifestyle, see plenty of RUBs (rich urban bikers) everywhere we go. We'd like to laugh at them at loud, but we don't, because it's not cool to laugh at people.

So, we go to a movie like Wild Hogs and laugh out loud at the people we'd really like to laugh at in real life.

For many others, they'll be laughing at themselves. And who know, I may just end up laughing at myself too.
