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 marriages: granting them a "hall pass," one week of freedom to do whatever they want...no questions asked.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The joke is supposed to be that it's sad to see these guys so desperate for a lay, but in truth, it's even sadder to see the brothers this desperate for a laugh."
‑ William Goss, Film.com
"The usual string of hackneyed and largely laugh-free set-ups involving vulgar chat-up lines, hash brownies and a mad, jealous guy with a crowbar, all seemingly purpose-honed to appeal to devotees of 'The Hangover'."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"Hall Pass features a hilarious cast in a film that is consistently funny and very entertaining. The laughs rarely stop in this one."
‑ Benjo Colautti, We Got This Covered
"A serviceable comedy outing with a number of surprisingly funny moments, along with a number of shocking but dumb-witted set-ups."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"...looks and sounds more like a raunchy, worn-out television sitcom than a Farrelly product."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Another chapter in the endless saga of American male infantilism."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"A gross-out comedy about the perpetual immaturity of the American male that has, amazingly enough, a mature perspective."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"The first truly terrible picture of 2011."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Have the Farrellys lost their touch? Once adept at crafting trashy, lowbrow gags way too funny to be ignored, they seem totally tin-eared with 'Hall Pass.'"
‑ John Gholson, Cinematical
"If you are the world's biggest fan of movies that bake adultery, family, self-esteem, and your true life's purpose into a cake frosted with d**k jokes, this is your film."
‑ Grae Drake, Movies.com
"There's something about Hall Pass that feels grosser than the usual Farrelly brothers comedy."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Peter and Bobby Farrelly are gross-out artists in transition."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"The Farrelys have lost their comic fastball. And curveball. And changeup."
‑ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
"Wilson and Sudeikis make an amusingly goofy pair."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Farrelly brothers still gross out, but come up short on laughs"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
