You WILL Laugh - Even after the Credits Roll. (by ChipperX)
"Hall Pass", the latest movie from the Farrelly brothers starring Owen Wilson Rick and Jason Sudeikis Fred , is a raunchy comedy that serves up "distasteful" humor. The movie has an intended audience: People male and female who enjoy raunchy, racy, "dirty" comedy. If you laughed until you cried while watching "There's Something About Mary", then you will most likely appreciate this flick. If you thought "Dumb And Dumber" was just plain stupid, then you will probably not enjoy "Hall Pass".The Premise: Two married, middle-aged <more>
men, Rick Wilson and Fred Sudeikis are in loving but sexually-unexciting marriages. They portray the typical horny male with sex on the brain who ogles women frequently.They believe their wandering eyes are clandestine, but unfortunately they are caught scoping chicks by their wives, played by Jenna Fischer Maggie and Christina Applegate Grace . After the wives witness a few cringe-worthy scenes of male libido gone wild within their husbands, they are encouraged by their friend, a therapist, to allow the men a "week off" from marriage to cure their wanderlust. The Execution: "Hall Pass" is not an Oscar-worthy movie - nor is it incredibly original. The stars do not deliver Shakespearean-level performances. What you get is exactly what the trailers promise: A desperately funny, sad, tragic and raunchy comedy that both entertains and enlightens. The opening scenes which set up the movie's premise are fresh and raucous - look for the scene involving the "Stepford" family and their safe-room video cameras. I actually learned a new lexicon which, I am sure, will become popular amongst my Facebook friends: "Big Mouth Vagina", "Fake Chow," and "Oversexed Bobble-head". Also, witness the quiet desperation of Wilson Rick and Sudeikis Fred as they ogle the coffee house barrista. The second act of the movie is pretty dirty - and quite laughable. I will not give anything away, here - not every joke in the movie is razor sharp or fresh, and some of it is a bit stale. However, you certainly get what you paid for - a few moments of diamond-hard nastiness so crude you might never have imagined it yourself. Whether it was intentional or not, the movie succeeds and / or fails in the over-the-hill physical presentation of the couples. Wilson and Sudeikis looked slightly old and fat, while Fischer and Applegate looked slightly pale and fine-line wrinkly. I understand that the movie's premise revolves around middle-aged couples, but I did not really enjoy the stars' tired-looking appearance - why could they not have been portrayed as older-but-still-sexy? Applegate as Grace is really the only married character who looked like she still kept herself up. This, of course, is only a minor quibble - the directors obviously felt that a bit of paunch and wrinkle was necessary to make the characters more believable.The third act of "Hall Pass" offers a satisfactory conclusion to this cautionary tale. Rick and Fred are able to rejoin Maggie and Grace after realizing that they did indeed already have everything they needed to enjoy happy unions with their spouses. Pay close attention, here: There are a few unpredictable, surprising moments which make the movie well-worth seeing and definitely elevate the film within its shock-humor genre. Is this a bit of a "Hollywood" ending? You bet it is - but in this age of common infidelity and skyrocketing divorce, I feel the conclusory message of the movie is quite poignant, and yes - uplifting. The characters each learn "hard" lessons which will hopefully strengthen their unions for years to come pun intended . Final Credits Scene Alert: Many people, after viewing the movie in the theater, will rise from their seats and hurry out to continue their lives as the credits begin to roll. STOP! Don't do it! One hilarious scene and one humorous out-take remains - much like the final scene in "The Hangover". Do yourself a favor and stay until the credits have COMPLETELY finished. This is becoming more and more common in movies - pivotal sequel clues and codas are now frequently left in the final credits. I don't mind this at all - for me, the movie is not finished until the credits have stopped rolling.Final Recommendation: While some people may feel that the humor in "Hall Pass" is over the top, I must respectfully disagree. You go into a movie of this type with your eyes wide open, and the trailers all point to one thing - one heck of a "dirty" movie. There shouldn't be anyone who knows anything about the premise of this movie who feels cheated because you get exactly what you pay for: Hilariously concocted set-piece after set-piece of trashy, low-brow hi-jinx. With respect to execution of raunchy comedy, the Farrelly brothers deliver in high, grotesque style. Anyone seeing a movie at the theater can expect some level of predictability. The really good movies deliver unexpected surprises and plot twists that leave you talking for a few days. "Hall Pass", in my humble opinion, is that type of movie."Hall Pass" delivers a splendid menu of delicious depravity for the audience to digest. If you do not like this type of sexual comedy, then please wait for your friends to see it instead, and get the story second-hand from them - but I am sure that they will summarize the movie with knowing, private smiles on their faces and wicked gleams in their eyes.Concept: 10 out of 10 Stars. Execution: 9 out of 10 Stars. Overall Rating: 10 out of 10 Stars.Chipper F. Xavier, Esq.
The movie delivers what it's supposed to - comedy. (by Nesvrstani)
I never really expected much from Hall Pass, since the Farrelly brothers kinda lost their touch in the years back, but this is pure gold. After a long day, this is the perfect way to end it. The perfect way to kill time.It's fast paced, every scene is filled with something funny. I don't remember laughing as much as I did tonight. at a movie The story is great, it develops perfectly, it's original, and the actors are perfect for their respective roles.It's everything you should get from a comedy movie. It blows Due Date; Little Fockers; and other comedies from a few months <more>
Friends since college Rick Owen Wilson and Fred Jason Sudeikis have been married A lot of years. Over the years checking out other girls hasn't been a problem for their wives but now it's turned into a broad daylight Gawkingitis problem. Maggie Jenna Fischer and Grace Christina Applegate decide to give their husbands a genie's wish for all guys. A Hall Pass, to be released from all obligation of marriage, the freedom to do whatever you want for 1 week. Rick and Fred soon realize that having a pass to be in the halls is not as important then being in their home room with <more>
their wives. Gut busting funny comedy that all couples can relate to. Hilarious remedy for that day when you need your funny bone rattled. DO NOT LEAVE AT THE CREDITS. Watch the reverse mini-van. 5 out of 5 stars.
Mr. Wilson & Sudeikis to the Principal's Office (by dscott750-1)
The Farrelly Bros have once again come out with a "GUY'S Movie. No chick flick here. Laughs from beginning to end and yes a realization who truly needed the Hall Pass.Raunchy guy humor from beginning to end, 'Fake Chow', vagina jokes and bordering on gay stuff does pardon the pun arise come into play.I cannot think of a movie I've laughed harder at in months. Debates concerning a wealthy friend's family portrait; an other buddy who's suppose to be a dating guru teaching them how to judge 10's when amongst other women were some of the things to look forward <more>
to. And why sneezing could be harmful to your maid.Over all I found the it funny and worth either the matinée or full price to go see. And DVD worthy.Repeating this is GUY FLICK not a chick flick so yes get ready to be grossed out at times.
One of the funnier comedies for the last few years (by phd_travel)
The premise of a one week break from married life is the story for Hall Pass. The Brothers take a shot married life and succeed. There are many laugh out loud moments almost throughout the movie. It is really the Brothers best in a while. Put it after Something About Mary and Shallow Hal. There is a satisfying story always a moral. It's risqué without being crude even though there is some toilet humor. Also it's never painful to watch. Jokes are fresh and even though you can guess the outcome it's just really enjoyable to see how you get there. It's one of those comedies that <more>
is funny even if you watch it a second time because there are so many good lines.With this cast you can't go wrong. Owen is always charmingly droll. He even has a middle aged spread to boot. His awkward dance and pickup moves are endearing. Sudekis is a bit common looking but he's good for the part. Applegate is spot on. She really needs to get more big screen comedic roles - she is so good and very pretty. Fisher is a bit laid back but suitable. There are some familiar Farrelly Bros supporting cast. Some new faces like the Aussie temptation and the babysitter are great too.The visit The Shallow Hal like part in the bar with Richard Jenkins is hilarious. The visit to the new house of their friend is good to.Worth watching - ignore the bad reviews.
Mention the Farrelly Brothers, and There's Something About Mary springs to mind almost immediately. Known for their rather raunchy brand of comedic films such as The Heartbreak Kid starring Ben Stiller, their latest film Hall Pass takes a dig at stable, married lives by introducing the titular concept of getting a mutually agreed upon break from marriage to do anything you please. Anything. And to the average Joe, this probably means to boldly go hook up with members of the opposite sex, getting drunk and wasted, and more. Or is it?I cannot answer on behalf of married men out there, but <more>
surely the thought of this is pretty enticing, with family responsibilities shelved aside of course and the shackles to commitment being broken. But for best friends Rick Owen Wilson and Fred Jason Sudeikis , having a six day pass in their hands as given by their wives Maggie Jenna Fischer and Grace Christina Applegate respectively means a window of so many opportunities being opened, one doesn't know where to start, as the days zip by one by one in episodic fashion that counts down the type of shenanigans the guys get themselves into. One thing's for sure though, trying too hard brings about plenty of laughter, though I can feel for the challenges faced when being rejected left, right and center. being toothless, domesticated predators thrown into the wild to seek out easy prey ripe for the picking.As an adult oriented comedy, expect the usual bag of jokes that stem from rude lines of dialogue insulting an uppity mutual friend and his family got brownie points , plenty of bodily fluids released on screen you will never forget that scene with the girl at the edge of the bathtub , enough body parts on display including male genitalia, and sometimes plain slapstick action, but don't judge me when I say I enjoyed almost every single joke that made it through, right up until the end of the credits - so don't leave your seat just yet when the credits start to roll.But those looking for a raunchy good time as the Farrelly's are known for, may find this film a wee bit disappointing, as much as how one character lamented that in a group gathering that they aren't seeing enough woman action since they're but a bunch of dudes getting together talking about geeky stuff. And in essence, this film does feel that way, even hitting one for the other side. You may think that a Hall Pass means a guy given the permission to do as he pleases, but the truth is that it works both ways as well, with the wives also enjoying some time off with some jocks, and this forms the other half of the equation in the film, which actually has a lot more provocative issues thrown into the works that make the men's shenanigans look like child's play.It's a very different Owen Wilson role here, as his usual characters usually have him in a cavalier sort of demeanour and being the chief jokester. Here, the first thing you'll notice is the very prim and proper hairdo he gets as Rick, and really toning down the alpha male aspects to become the meek and mild mannered man having absolutely no idea how to live up to his fantasies. Taking over as chief prankster is Jason Sudeikis who shows that he can hold his own in what would be a typical Owen Wilson shoo in as Fred, the man who thinks he has everything figured out, not. The pair when they come together create some comedic magic, but the best of the lot would be when Richard Jenkins enters the fray as their womanizing mentor Coakley, which is the most entertaining character in the film, with Jenkins completely playing against type, and is one of the prime reasons to sit through this comedy.True that it's probably due to age that I'm beginning to find comedies which have middle aged characters entering a crisis a lot more appealing, perhaps reflecting and addressing similar anxieties I can identify with from time to time, so much so that I'll put this as one of the best comedies of the year thus far, that is recommended for viewing. And stay put while the end credits roll, as you'll be richly rewarded with two additional hilarious clips.
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 <more>
Have you ever wondered what happened to the crew of guys from the first "American Pie" movie? After they lost "it" I often wonder what happened after they got married and had kids and moved out to the suburbs. What happened 20 years later when they were no longer the "Big Men on Campus"? Thanks to the new release by the Farrelly brothers Bobby and Peter who also brought us "Dumb and Dumber" and "Kingpin" we are now able to see the rest of the story. "Hall Pass" is by no means a sequel in the "American Pie" series but both <more>
films did remind me of how most men are wired for sexual conquests from puberty onward. "Hall Pass" captured America's well known character - the middle age suburbanite male and gave him a hall pass. A hall pass is a weeklong excuse for married men to behave badly, drink to excess and sleep with whomever. We start the movie with Rick played by Owen Wilson and Fred played by Jason Sudeikis attending an award banquet with their wives. They think they have the "scoping-chicks-out-in-secret" scheme down perfectly while their wives know what dogs they really have become over the years. It's not that Rick and Fred are totally miserable in their marriages but they think that they could be getting some serious action if they weren't tied down. Fred has even resorted to finding a way to relieve some of his sexual tensions in his car. Their wives, Maggie played by Jenna Fischer and Grace played by Christina Applegate , speak with a psychiatrist friend of theirs who gives them the idea of letting their husbands have a week off of their marriage so that they can carouse and let some of their male tendencies rule. At the end of the week they come back and have stronger marriages because of the freedom. Hey, I am sure it works in theory. Once the guys are loose, they have some troubles getting back in the game. They are like two disoriented bulls in a china shop; they neither have any idea how they got there nor how to move around with any tact. The week moves quickly with the guys bar hopping at family restaurants. They embark on a hilarious golf outing after eating some brownies laced with pot. By the third night they are called out on their manhood by their friends. Rick and Fred, like a lot of guys, talk a big game but have very little action to back up their smack talk. While the boys are trying their hardest using tasteless pick-up lines and getting drunk to build their confidence, the wives are being themselves and living it up with a minor league baseball team in Cape Cod. As an indirect result to allowing the husbands go out, the wives are also permitted a hall pass. However, the wives aren't as shameless about their newfound freedom. The movie moves on with many quotable one liners and quite a few shock moments. But, it wouldn't be a true Farrelly brothers' movie without one or two shock moments. Remember the hair gel scene in "There's Something About Mary?" The same goes with "Hall Pass," with a lot of big risks comes a lot of big rewards for the audience. Should you see this movie? Yes. The actors played off of each with ease. Along with a well-written script, it all came together for several big laughs. However, if you are not comfortable with sexual references or outlandish sight gags, this might not be the film for you. If you are the type to laugh at "American Pie," "Superbad," "Step Brothers" or any other over the top comedy then this would definitely be a pick for you.
Might be passed up with hefty comedy competition in 2011 (by StevePulaski)
It's been four years since The Farrelly Brothers' forgettable remake of The Heartbreak Kid had it's brief run in the theaters, now we have a much funnier film called Hall Pass about Rick Wilson and Fred Sudeikis who are given a week off from marriage from their wives Maggie Fischer and Grace Applegate . The week is anticipated to be one of the best weeks of their lives, but ends up being a slow and dull weekend of failed attempts to meet women.The Farrelly Brothers, I assume, are trying to make a point that when women separate from their men they have a lot of fun <more>
socializing, and having a rule-free week. When men separate from their wives their afraid to make the slightest commitment with a girl because of their wives' reaction. Even though they say "rule-free" we can pretty much all assume "rule-free within their guidelines." Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis have a very humorous chemistry on screen, and Christina Applegate is not only beautiful, but a pleasure to have assisting the leads as well. Knowing The Farrelly's you are sure to have a lot of gross out humor in this movie, and boy you do! Some hit hard, but some fall flat.My favorite character in this whole film is Larry Joe Campbell who plays Hog Head. He is without a doubt hysterical as he plays the dopey fat guy who gets into trouble along with the guys on their week off. He reminds me of my own father, and every scene he was in I found myself laughing. Too bad he didn't replace Sudeikis in the film so I could laugh more and give this film a higher rating, but oh well.The big problem with this film is not that not all the jokes are funny, that the drama element at the ends sort of ruins the outrageous comedy film the movie had going, but the fact that it's February and a movie like this is coming out. It's a strange complaint, but it must be stated, comedies like this are meant for the summer season or the fall season so that it has a bigger chance of making the top list of favorite comedies on critic's lists.This year especially with huge competition with The Hangover Part II being released. Hall Pass should've benefited itself by waiting till around August to be released. With it being released so early in the year it will likely suffer treatment like Book of Eli and Fired Up with being released so early they are questioned by people in later months.Hall Pass hits us with some very strong laughs, but ultimately it still doesn't blow us away. I would've liked more of the guys, less of the wives, and more of Larry Joe Campbell. You can't always get what you want, but in Hall Pass it delivers most of what you would want in an outrageous comedy.Starring: Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate, and LArry Joe Campbell. Directed by: Bobby and Peter Farrelly.
