Four middle-aged men jump on their motorcycles for a cross-country tour to find their own personal mojo. Ordinarily this would be just enough information to buy tickets for Happy Feet, except there is a remarkable cast. Woody (John Travolta) is rich, Doug (Tim Allen) is an insecure dentist, Bobby (Martin Lawrence) is a pussy-whipped unemployed plumber and Dudley (William H. Macy) is a bachelor computer geek. As they hit the road, there are very predictable stunts like getting knocked off a bike by a road sign, but the actors in this film bring new humor to the situations. No question, these guys are having a good time and getting paid well for it. The overall plot is lame, but the characters are really characters and provide some very light comedy for a dark winter day. Got some laundry to do? Rent the DVD, pop some corn and set your brain on pause for something just plain silly. (Mary Nyiri)
