Hall Pass - Movie Review

Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis star as Rick and Fred in this comedy about marriage and family responsibility, as 40-somethings who romanticize their days in college when they were young and had the freedom to have any woman they wanted. Their wives Maggie (Jenna Fischer) and Grace (Christina Applegate) give them a hall pass - one week to do whatever they want without any consequences. Fred is excited to rustle up the women and egg his best friend on. Of course, things don't go as planned and before they know it, the week is almost up and what do you know - no women. When the two finally manage to find someone to sleep with, their love for their wives is put to the test.

Hall Pass has a lot of crude jokes and really gross gags, some parts funny but cringe worthy at the same time. I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone who doesn't like potty humour. Fans of directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly's movie may enjoy this mindless movie for a few good laughs, but don't waste your time if you're looking to watch something more meaningful.
