Hall Pass Movie Review

Last night I sat down and watched Hall Pass with my better half on the Xbox Live Video on Demand service which is becoming my new favorite way to rent movies. I was expecting very little since the last couple of movies I watched with Christina Applegate as a headliner were less than impressive but I gave it a shot because the cast overall was top notch including the likes of Jenna Fischer ( dear me is she hot but dont tell anyone I dont want to get in trouble ) , Owen Wilson and the always hilarious Jason Sudeikis.

Owen Wilson stars as a married man whose spouse (Jenna Fischer) grants him the right — for just one week — to pursue as many extramarital affairs as he can. His best buddy (Jason Sudeikis) receives an identical “hall pass” from his wife, and off the guys go. The hubbies soon discover, however, that picking up girls isn’t as easy as they recall, while their better halves embark on their own erotic adventures. Bobby and Peter Farrelly direct.

As of late I have watched a lot of comedies hoping for some sort of magic and been horribly disappointed. In the case of Going The Distance which is the Applegate movie I was talking about they put all the jokes in the trailer making the movie a complete and utter waste of time. I had hoped Due Date which starred Robert Downey Jr and Hangover 2 champion Zach Galifanikis would deliver, it stunk. I even hoped that The Dilemna would crack me up and yep you guessed it, another yawner.

Summed up it seems every new movie I have seen that is supposed to crack me up has been a complete waste of time so my hopes were pretty low for Hall Pass and perhaps that is why this movie had me literally in tears laughing and chuckling pretty much throughout. Hall Pass is a movie that has a great cast with an incredible on screen dynamic and when combined with some really good direction and writing it makes it a completely worthwhile experience.

You won’t laugh from open to end like you might have with The Hangover but you will most certainly find yourself choking on your beverage as zingers come flying out of left field and have you in a laughing fit.

The humour is at times low brow and at other times intelligent and rewarding which is what makes Hall Pass a fun movie. It is not a Will Ferrell movie where its all about tit and ass and fart jokes but it certainly has its moments of dirty humour but its polished in such a fashion that no matter how gross ( and yes it gets gross at times ) I think you will still have a hard time laughing I know that my lovely lady friend did.

I watched it as part of my impromptu date night and both myself and my better half found the movie entertaining and rewarding. So if your looking for a risqué date night movie or just looking to have a beer and a laugh on your own Hall Pass fits the bill.

Hall Pass is fun, its witty, it’s charming and at times heart warming and its one of those movies you can’t help but enjoy. 8 out of 10 stars.

    I enjoyed Hall
    Pass. I know it wasn’t
    the best comedy I have seen but I agree with you that it has some really funny
    parts. Like when they are touring that house and everyone but the two main
    characters are in the panic room. I couldn’t stop laughing at what happened.
    The other thing I though was really funny is their friend they kept mentioning
    who is the “clubber/ladies man” out of their friends. I was expecting some guy
    a little younger than them, and when I saw the old man I just busted out
    laughing. I feel like most critics are being a bit harsh on this movie. I know
    that can make people not want to see a movie really fast. If you have Dish
    Network though, you can get Hall
    Pass until July 17th
    for just .99 cents. That way you can decide for yourself. I feel like I am
    behind I didn’t even know Xbox had VOD services but that is probably because I haven’t
    replaced my 360 that had gotten the RROD. I work for Dish Network though so at
    least I can stay up to date with movies and deals like this when I can. Great
    review! Oh yeah almost forgot if you want the full list of movies that are just
    .99 cents go to and
    check it out.

    i have been using [url=]New York Escorts[/url] windows media player calssic
    when you [url=]New York Escort[/url] select the full screen reoslution as 320 x200 i figured that even though it still uses 16bpp colour depth it might be easier [url=]New York Asian Escort[/url] to capture using debut screen cast from this lower resolution and then use virtual dub [url=]New York Asian Escorts[/url]

    It is really amazing written story. I think this one of the best video watched by me and i m really impressed with this.I think anyone who watch this video may looking forward to this movie.Also the poster is attractive, Thanks for the information.

    One of the worst movies I’ve seen in years.  They try to be funny by going over the top and doing things that would never happen in real life.  I have 100 times more real life experiences that are far funnier than this racist trash.  Don’t ruin your night with this junk – watch “Just Go with it”  That movie was great.
