Review: The Farrelly brothers return to their old form, like with The Heartbreak kid, with Hall pass. Hall pass is a film about the battle of the sexes, and how the women have dominated. Hall pass has gross out humor, like many of their films, but its their funniest since Me, myself and Irene.
The films heroes are Rick and Fred, two middle aged married men who havent been getting a lot of action lately. So, after an embarrassing moment at a party, their wives are persuaded into giving them 2 weeks off of marriage. Free to do whatever they want, no rules.
The idea sounds great to them. But the truth is, both them and their friends are lame dorks who havent hit on chicks for a while. So, its kind of a challenge. As for the women, who also decide to do it at the spur of the moment, its easier.
Hall pass has some gross moments. I actually screamed in the theater at one point. But most of the time its hilarious. I like The Farrelly Brothers films, most the time. Theyve done some bad, but mostly good. They directed some of the funniest movies ive ever seen, such as Dumb and dumber and Theres something about Mary.
I did enjoy their last gross fest, The Heartbreak kid. But this film is funnier. It has a better message, instead of a somewhat grim one. I laughed out loud many times during Hall pass. Its the funniest film ive seen in a while, and its good to have the brothers back.
