Storyline

Peter Fonda plays 'Heavenly Blues', the leader of Hell's Angels chapter from Venice, California while Bruce Dern plays 'Loser', his best pal. When they both botch their attempt to retrieve Loser's stolen bike, Loser ends up in the hospital. When the Angels bust him out, he dies, and they bury him. Nancy Sinatra plays Mike, Blues' "old lady" and Diane Ladd plays Loser's wife (Dern's real-life wife at the time). The plot is basically a buildup to the last half-hour of the film in which Loser's funeral becomes another wild party. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

George Chakiris was originally hired by Roger Corman to play "Black Jack" (later changed to "Heavenly Blues" by Peter Fonda), but insisted that a stunt double do his motorcycle riding, so Corman replaced him with Fonda, who was originally cast as "Loser". See more »

not a bad movie for a first attempt
27 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

it had been many years since,The Wild Ones had been made with Brando.Hollywood disdained biker movies,there for, good writers were not going to have their name linked to one.the actors in this made it on a lark.they went to party and have fun.they knew they wasn't making any sort of an epic.but in a way they did.people who went to see this didn't care about the script or story line.this was a movie made with people from their generation,and not the same Hollywood old guard.so in many ways this started a trend in Hollywood of making movies,for the young adults,that wasn't Frankie and Annete on the beach.I personally like this movie,and see it to just have fun,not to learn any thing.I know the story is b.s.but it's got bikes,babes, partying,and dudes acting like horse's asses,how can you go wrong?
