Hall Pass Movie Review
April 14, 2011
I was trying to kill time yesterday as my car was number-coded. 5 hours of waiting time is too long that I decided to just watch a movie alone. Honestly, all 5 movies that were showing in Shangrila Cineplex weren’t my type. I had to choose the best among the 5 movies. I’ve chosen Hall Pass. I was glad I watched it. Hall Pass was hilarious and I had a nice laugh. I wasn’t even worrying that other people might think I’m crazy as I was alone then.
I entered the movie house not knowing what to expect with Hall Pass. I just knew that it was a comedy based on the movie poster I’ve seen. I never even thought that there’s such a thing as Hall Pass.
Hall Pass = A week off marriage, in which they can do anything & everything during the period. No strings attached.
Is this even happening in real life? I have no idea. Maybe you can give me some perspective on this?
I loved how the movie was played out. There were some cheap “Rated R” scenes but I believe it was really meant for laughs. With the Farrelly brothers directing & producing the movie, it wasn’t a surprise (remember ‘Something About Mary’?).
Hall Pass showed the adventures of Rick (Owen Wilson) & Fred (Jason Sudeikis) during their 1-week off marriage. It showed their day by day activities, 7 days in total. They tried going to bars, drinking, being high, eating awful lots of food, golfing, flirting and a lot more. It was really fun to watch. I somehow think that guys do really think that way. But will giving a Hall Pass to your partner work? It depends.
Watch the movie to see if it did work out for Rick’s & Fred’s marriages.
Oh, before I forget, I found these pickup lines used in the movie hilarious!
- Hi, my *toot* just passed away. I was wondering if I can bury it inside you.
- Poof! I’m here. So what are your other 2 wishes?
- The necklace is very becoming on you, but then again if I were on you I’m sure I’ll be coming too!
- So are you living from Ireland for a chance because when I look at you, my *toot* Dublin in size.
My Rating for Hall Pass: 3.5 out of 5 stars.
