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.

"Animal House" on two wheels ..........
12 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Masters of Menace" is a fraternity movie, only without the college, without the fraternity house, but with motorcycles. David Rasche and his "brothers" wreck havoc on the way to bury one of their own in Las Vegas. The movie is a franticly paced low brow comedy, with plenty of idiotic gags, and some surprising guest appearances by Dan Akroyd, Jim Belushi, John Candy, and George Wendt. Even "Smokey The Bear" gets into the act. If you enjoy stupid comedies like "Idiocracy" or "Strange Wilderness", this is one to check out. If you would not enjoy a movie centered around characters who can barely write their name in the mud with a stick, stay clear of "Masters of Menace". - MERK
