Hog Wild

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

A mite pleasanter and funnier than the awful title suggests, this is a good-natured, dumb movie about a high school feud between Waspy wimps and leathered bike heavies. Quick to anger, easily moved to violence (of the custard pie sort), the bikers are led by Rosato, who has perfected an incomprehensible mumble (sounding like early Brando on a bad line) and is as menacing as anyone with doggy eyes and an owlish blink can be. Although the bikers are blessed with a Morricone-esque theme tune, the film lacks the sort of musical thread which might make it a viable teen movie (it's obvious that all the 'kids' should have graduated at least a decade earlier).
