Wild Hogs (D: Walt Becker, 99 min)
It's been more than 15 years since City Slickers, so we suppose it's okay to steal from its premise. In Wild Hogs , four suburban types ( John Travolta , Tim Allen , Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy ) leave behind their minivans and welcome their mid-life crises head-on by travelling across the country on Harleys. Of course, they encounter lots of hilarity on the road, including a badass biker gang. The trailers are full of slapstick, but don't hold that against the pic. Writer Brad Copeland is a producer on two of the smartest recent TV shows, My Name Is Earl and Arrested Development. Opens Friday (March 2). Screened after press time -- see review March 2 at www.nowtoronto.com/film.
