Hall Pass - Movie Review

I won a run of engagement pass for this movie a few weeks back and I finally went to see it today. Hall Pass is comedy about two best friends, Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) who are getting a little restless in their many years of marriage. In attempt to fix their husbands' behaviour, their wives gives them a hall pass - a week off from marriage to do whatever they want, including sleep with other women, with no consequences. At first the men are thrilled but as the week goes on they begin to realize that single life isn't at all like they remember. With their husbands absent, the wives also find themselves tempted to engage in extramarital relations themselves.

Hall Pass is a funny movie but it also contains a lot of crude and vulgar jokes involving bodily fluids and genitalia which is also displayed in full force. The plot was ho-hum and I didn't like the side story of their wives. It seemed too rushed to be resolved properly. If you are looking for a few laughs, Hall Pass will deliver but it may also end up making you uncomfortable. If watching Rick and Fred's miserable attempts at picking up women is your kind of thing by all means go for it. If you don't have time then just watch the trailer. It basically contains almost everything in the movie minus the vulgarity.

Hall Pass is in theatres now but won't be for long!
