Hall Pass: Blu Ray Review
Released by Warner Bros
The guys behind
There's Something About Mary bring us a new comedy where a couple of dudes get
given a week off their marital obligations to do whatever they want.
Owen Wilson is Rick, who's been married to high school
sweetheart Maggie (Fischer); Jason Sudeikis is Fred, married to Christina
The pair love their wives but
are constantly on the look out whenever anything female crosses their paths.
So, sick of their visual straying, the wives grant
them a "hall pass", a magic ticket for a week off marriage and any obligations
so these guys can get their urges out.
prude but this uneven and at times flat and unfunny film feels like it tries to
shock simply because it's a Farrelly Brothers' joint. It does little to propel
what plot there is along and simply serves to show the guys can still offend and
gross out if they so desire.
Owen Wilson is
likeable enough as the middle aged schlub who actually loves his wife and can't
cut it when "back on the scene" - and when paired with Sudeikis, the duo are
completely clueless when it comes to the dating game
Hall Pass is probably one for the boys with some beers - a couple of
humourous moments but overall, way too patchy for a great night in.
Extras: Extended cut plus gag reel - about what you'd
