Storyline

The Masters of Menace are actually a motorcycle gang. When one of their own dies while performing a dangerous bike stunt, they decide to cross the country to go bury him. With the coffin in the back of the pick-up truck and the tight-butt lawyer in the front, their craving for beer combined with lack of manners will disturb quite a few people wherever they go, including the police. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

A lost Classic
22 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Masters of Menace is a great comedy about a motorcycle gang known as the the Road Masters, led by Buddy Wheeler. They are under probation to not leave the state. But have to when one of their members dies and needs a proper burial. They go on a road trip to Las Vagas with their lawyer Wollace Wolfby. Along the way the make friends and meet some old friends, but also make a enemy out of Riley Hoover who will stop at nothing to put the road masters in jail.

I grew up in a biker family so this movie a lot of sentimental value for me. I knew some people who are like the characters in the movie.

I think this movie is great and that everyone should see it. It is far funnier than any movie made in the last five years. Their are some great memorable quotes and characters.

There are some great scenes in this movie like when the gang stops at Billy Bob's buffet and are busted by the locale sheriff. Or when they drink widow cleaner and get advice from Smokey The Bear. There are also great cameo appearances from Jim Belushi and John Candy.

I've done some research on this film and found out that it was written by the actor who played Horny Hank. A year before this movie came out a movie name Wedding Band was made.It is directed and written by the same people and starring some of th same actors. So you may want to check that out to. I have not seen it.

Masters Of Menace is a movie you should not pass up. Buy it, watch it, tell your fiends, because it is a true classic that needs to be known.
