I work in the film industry in Vancouver and I just returned from the premier of "The Wild Guys", and this is my opinion. From the out of focus opening shot (focus is a problem throughout) & the sloppy steady-cam moves to the constant peppering of cheesy film clichés and embarrassing dialogue, this film has succeeded in setting the bar for Canadian film well below grade. It's infuriating that many federal and provincial film organizations actually contributed to this mess with public dollars while so many talented local filmmakers and writers can't find the resources to make worthwhile films and maybe create a real industry in this country. I hope that the rest of the world will overlook this mistake and continue to support quality Canadian films.
