Consensus: Some filmgoers may be surprised by the Farrellys' defense of traditional domestic values in Hall Pass -- unfortunately, they'll probably also be dismayed by the absence of laughs.

William Goss

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.

Time Out

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'.

Philadelphia Weekly

The Farrelly's don't seem to have much interest in their own premise, instead wallowing in pee-pee and doo-doo jokes.

David Denby
New Yorker

Another chapter in the endless saga of American male infantilism.

David Edelstein
New York Magazine/Vulture

A gross-out comedy about the perpetual immaturity of the American male that has, amazingly enough, a mature perspective.

We Got This Covered

Hall Pass features a hilarious cast in a film that is consistently funny and very entertaining. The laughs rarely stop in this one.

Rafer Guzman

There's something about Hall Pass that feels grosser than the usual Farrelly brothers comedy.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

Peter and Bobby Farrelly are gross-out artists in transition.

A slightly funnier than expected film. A mix of Old School meets American Pie. It has a fair share of funny moments but nothing really to make it stand out from… More

The material of Hall Pass, dispite be funny, doesn't honor the actors and the directors.

While this movie obviously isn't everyone's idea of funny, it is funny. My husband, and I, found it hilarious in more than one scene. The Farrelly… More
