Entertainment: +2
Acceptability: -2

John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, William H. Macy. Comedy. Written by Brad Copeland. Directed by Walt Becker.

FILM SYNOPSIS: Four stressed-out middle-aged buddies take a much needed vacation. As they are motorcycle enthusiasts, they decide to bike across the country. Hells Angels, these guys aint. So when they cross a bad--- biker band, havoc ensues.

PREVIEW REVIEW: The first half-hour or so is bland and makes it clear that no true revelations or self-discoveries will be found, but after Ray Liotta is introduced as the leader of the rough-neck bikers, suddenly the comedy and the films energy go into a higher gear. That said, though the content is not as graphic and blatant as you might expect in a men-on-the-road picture, read the content before deciding to go.
