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.

I must be honest and say it's bad, but if you like bad cheesy films, it's a must see.
23 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Masters of Menace, which at least has a somewhat appealing title, is one of those films that some might categorize under the dubious "Worst Movie Ever" section. It is however, quite hilarious, intentional or not.

Masters of Menace is about a biker gang on a trip to Las Vegas for a funeral. While getting there they stop at strip bars, play cat and mouse with the cops, and raise mayhem everywhere they go.

The acting and editing are unbelievably bad, and the jokes and pranks are so forced it's impossible not to laugh at. Without looking at their filmography's, I would guess most of the actors in this film had brief acting careers. After looking at the actors filmography's, I am truly amazed they've all had lengthy careers. They must have improved their skills, because they all look like novice's in Masters of Menace.

I did in fact enjoy Masters of Menace, but I also enjoyed Mac and Me, and both are very very bad movies. So bad they're funny.

Masters of Mayhem is a laugh riot no doubt.

2 out of 10 objectively, 8 if you enjoy cheese and bad films.
