Different view.

Seems that not everybody understood the plot. Maybe they were expecting a Vince Vaungh performance. First, the hall pass was given under a misinterpretation and overreaction. These guys were dorks and good husbands, not studs trapped in a marriage that missed their bachelor years. At the end, one of the wives recognizes that the one that needed that break was her, not the husband. If you were expecting a wild and crazy behavior after permission was granted, look for another stupid "guy flick" at Vegas. There were few cliches, like the use of pot and a shart (fart and diarrhea), but even the last one deserved a laugh. Good dorky movie, specially that Kevin James was not in it.

Why all the haters?

I don't understand all the haters on here about this movie? I thought it was funny and laughed all the way through, and so did my wife. It is a lot funnier than Little Fockers was, and that is not saying much. It is a great movie to go and watch and just sit back and laugh and forget your troubles. What is wrong with some crude humor? I guess since I am in my 40s, and have friends that talk and act like the ones in the movie, it just was funnier to me...who knows....

I guess to each their own......

For me, I wish they would put out more funny movies like this. I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time....

A little bit of raunch and a lot of heart...

This movie was written and directed by The Farrelly Brothers. They've done There's Something About Mary, Kingpin and Dumb & Dumber. They've actually tamed down over the past few years and started doing some movies with heart (Shallow Hal, Fever Pitch). This one is actually a cross between Mary and Hal. It's raunchy in some places but for the most part, it's got a lot of heart.

Rick (Wilson) is given a week off from marriage by his wife, Maggie (Fischer). Fred (Sudeikis) is also given a week off from marriage from his wife, Grace (Applegate). Of course, this would never happen in real life... no self-respecting woman would ever do this to herself. Since this is the movies, Maggie and Grace's reasoning behind this is... let the dogs off the leash and they'll no longer want to have affairs. It's actually pretty funny on how they both earned their hall passes in the first place. I won't say anything, you can just watch it.

The movie starts out just fine, kind of lags in the middle (Day 1 through 4 of said titular hall pass) and then picks up again near the end. Speaking of the ending, it gets a little madcap and over-the-top for my taste, I felt like I was watching an episode of Benny Hill. All they needed was the music and it would have been like a 2011 update. I felt like there was a lot more territory to explore in this premise and yes, I get that men over 40 tire out sooner, that their lives have slowed down... but still. i just felt like something was missing.

The main reason to watch Hall Pass is the comic performances by Wilson and Sudeikis and the hilarious exchange of dialog between them and their friends (Merchant, Campbell, Smoove) and some pretty funny bits about them trying to 'play out of their league'. Practically anybody could have played the wives, because Applegate and Fischer bring absolutely nothing to the party but a familiar face and name. More reviews at www.soveryterry.com Final Grade: B-
