Wild Hogs

The movie manages to stay on course but the DVD's extra features are road kill —Matt Anderson (DVD review...)

This movie won best Actor, Picture, Director and Screenplay. Ray Milland plays an alcoholic (non-)writer trying to get on the wagon. I wasn’t sure if this movie was to be taken like Reefer Madness, but it seemed much too genuine and well-written to be that easily dismissed. Some of the better scenes are Milland telling his bartender what alcohol does for him, Milland narrowly escaping his girlfriend’s parents, and a screamingly creepy hallucination with a mouse. Wilder was way ahead of his time on this one.
