Friends Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) have loving wives Maggie and Grace, (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) and, in Rick's case, a couple of kids. After catching their husbands eyeing other women's butts, making rude remarks in front of friends, and so on, the ladies decide to offer them "hall passes"--an entire week during which they can pretend they're not married and do whatever they want, no questions asked, while the wives are away. Directed by the Farrelly Brothers.
Average Price: $13.00
Very average comedy. After watching the trailer I thought movie would be funnier, i was wrong. It had it moments and nice message in the end, but i probably wouldnt waste my time watching it again.
Hall Pass is an easy and light comedy. I liked the main characters and how they treated the 'break' from marriage. But I didn't care for how men were portrayed in general in this movie and the idea of a hall pass is pretty disgusting. Still though, if you take it for the light comedy it is, it's worth a watch.
Not a bad movie over all, has it's funny moments. Just about a guy who gets a pass for the weekend so he can do what he wants and the relationship doesn't count but ends up in many troubled situations.
What do you think, have you seen it?
l really didn't like this movie. I didn't find any of it funny really it was just over the top and ridiculous (and not in the good way). I wouldn't recommend it.
So I was kind of dragging my feet to watch this movie, I figured it would be the same old dirty humour and glorifying men being pigs. Well it was alot of dirty humour but it was truly funny. Also it showed the hall pass (break from marriage) from each spouses point of view! I found thats what made the movie and the outcomes were not as you would expect. this movie is not for the easily but it offers some easy humor!
I reluctantly watched this movie because the idea of a "hall pass" from marriage is revolting to me. And the movie is just exactly that. Men are pigs, married to amazing women and they still can't stop looking at other women, like they are missing out on something in their own lives, and marriages. Talking amongst their friends about the "hot" girl at the grocery store or the coffee shop (like the blonde in the movie), instead of just enjoying the life they have, the life that at one time they wanted. Why do men feel they are missing out on something, why do they have to long for something better. THE GRASS IS NOT ALWAYS GREENER. The two characters in this movie that I actually like are Rick played by Owen Wilson and his wife Maggie played by Jenna Fischer. Maggie is the one who said that Rick could have the hall pass but later realized it was she, herself, who wanted/needed the "break" from their marriage, but not really their marriage, just a break from watching her husband stare at all the super skinny women who don't have stretchmarks or saggy boobs from having children. She wanted to feel loved and appreciated and she wasn't feeling that at home. She thought if she could let him go out and get turned down then maybe he would realize how amazing she is and show a little appreciation towards her and stop looking at all the other women. So she packed up her children and when to the cottage. He rented a hotel room and then started the week of very slow, realizing that these women weren't actually interested in him. He later hit it off with the above mentioned coffee girl. One night he finally gets his chance, but then he realizes just how great his wife was, and the error of his ways. He turns down this completely gorgeous super model looking naked woman and heads to the cottage to get his wife, the woman of his dreams, the love of his life, only to find another man's car there. Afraid of what he would find, he entered slowly, happy to find his wife alone and then he tells her that she is the only one he's ever been with in "that" way. She "was his first, his last and his everything in the middle"
I love the way the movie wrapped up in the end. Even though some men don't appreciate what they have, some just need a little push to remember all the reasons why they love their partner.
I saw this movie earlier this week and I thought it was a hoot! I was laughing most of the movies, and when I wasn't laughing I was probably smiling.
It's a comedy about 2 middle-aged men whose wives give them a week off from marriage. They start off thinking they are huge studs and can get any girl they choose, but soon realize that what I remembered about dating was very different than reality.
I recommend this film for a good laugh!
