Okay, so “Hall Pass” isn’t usually the kind of stuff I like to follow up on, but it’s got a couple of things going for it: the Farrelly Brothers’ name still means something to me, though admittedly the star has shone less bright in recent years; and that clip about the “mental photographs”? That had me chuckling. I’m sorry, but I’m easy that way. Four clips from the movie below.
Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are best friends who have a lot in common, including the fact that they have each been married for many years. But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalizing their individual marriages: granting them a “hall pass,” one week of freedom to do whatever they want…no questions asked. At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But it isn’t long before they discover that their expectations of the single life-and themselves-are completely, and hilariously, out of sync with reality.
Starring Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, Richard Jenkins, Christina Applegate, Alexandra Daddario, Stephen Merchant, Nicky Whelan, Larry Joe Campbell, Tyler Hoechlin, Derek Waters, Alyssa Milano, Vanessa Angel, Kristin Carey and directed by Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly.
