Not So Wild Hogs

I watched Wild Hogs last night and was less than impressed. My son Christopher had seen it and said it was hilarious; as we have similar tastes I thought I would enjoy it. I should probably have taken a cue from the fact that Martin Lawrence was in it as I’ve yet to find one of his movies neither puerile nor simply lame. The humour in this movie is all visual and borders on slapstick. None of the main characters put in much of a performance, although William H. Macy is almost convincing as a clumsy, bungling programmer. I thought that the shining performance of this movie was John C. McGinley as a gay highway patrolman, but even this delivery was perhaps just a subtle variation of his portrayal of Dr. Cox in Scrubs.
