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.

Funny movie!!!
22 July 2009 | by mrham1See all my reviews

So many times I missed the beginning of the movie, which is actually the most important part! It gives the basis for the whole cross country adventure of the Masters Of Menace. Regardless, the beer truck scenes are worth watching this movie alone. Poor John Candy, poor brother Gypsy, but hurray for the Beck's Beer truck! Kudos, and enjoy! It's been a while since I've seen this flick, but as stated before, the cameo's are worth it. This movie was a great bridge between the classic 80's comedies, to kinda what became of Hollywood in the 90's. Now if only Chevy Chase could have somehow made a guest appearance. Again, as the other user stated, not the best of any particular realm of acting, but it is indeed worth some great laughs.
