Get a Reprieve With Hall Pass

New DVD release


Hall Pass, the latest in slapstick humor from the Farrelly Brothers (Dumb and Dumber, The Heartbreak Kid), delivers laughs with simple jokes and one-liners. Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are given what amounts to a hall pass in their marriages: one week to do whatever they want, no questions asked. With encouragement from their envious friends, the pair spends the seven days trying to get some action with outdated pickup lines. Their wives (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) have their doubts and participate in the free-for-all as well to make for an interesting ending. Though the overall message may appeal to women, the movie's crude jokes make this one for the guys, too.
