Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis and Christina Applegate in the Hall Pass trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I appreciate any movie that can give an accurate and comedic look into the life of a married man. I think in spite of their best intentions, Hollywood rarely seems able to capture what it means to be married in today’s world. Too often they want to throw in an unbelievable romance, a gun fight or some other extraordinary occurrence. I’m not saying that HALL PASS has it right, but the trailer at least gives a good first impression. The film is about a group of guys whose wives give them a “hall pass”, which is one week to do whatever they want with no consequences. Of course, the guys have grand expectations, but in reality realize they have nothing they want to do.
The film stars Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Christina Applegate, Alyssa Milano, Richard Jenkins, Jenna Fischer, Stephen Merchant and Joy Behar. The Farrelly Brothers are directing (side note: where have they been?) and the film opens everywhere February 25th. Watch the trailer here.
