It’s been a while since the Farrelly Brothers did something funny. Maybe “Hall Pass” will change all that. Though judging by the trailer, maybe not so much. A lot of predictable jokes here, and maybe it’s just the way they cut the trailer, but this looks incredibly tame for the Farrellys. Though I have to admit, the last bit with the “ugly girls/pretty girl” was chuckle worthy. The rest? Not so much. Maybe a Red Band Trailer in the near future will change all that. Until then, here’s the first trailer for “Hall Pass”.
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 written and directed by Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly.
