A couple of married guys are always looking at other women. Their wives are fed up with their behavior, and grant them a 'hall pass': a week off their marriage allowing them to do anything. But the guys take their time and their week is almost up. What they don't realize is that at the same time their wives make connections of their own. Written by

Let me start by saying this, the premise was incredible!
Two guys totally obsessed with sex get a "hall pass" of 1 week to get off marriage and have sex with anyone that they want.
Soo much potential. The movie starts great, it's extremely sweet in it's first 30 minutes, then it goes from nice to average when all we see is these guys suffering misery while their wives are enjoying the good life, suddenly, the movie just chicken's out in the end and gives a glorious HORRIBLE ENDING.
The movie fails MISERABLY in the end, because, the whole premise of the movie is to take the sex lightly, sex has nothing to do with true love and should't matter, but then, the Farrelly's throw away the whole concept for a typical romantic comedy with the gold old values of "marriage is everything".
Please, GIVE ME A BREAK, If I go see a movie about a hall pass, I expect at least these guys to get some fun, not that they suffer through the whole movie to then mysteriously find that they love their wives and they had been wrong from the start.
Sex drive is in each one of us, it doesn't go away because of love, nor does the desire to be with other girls/guys, no matter how in love we are and is not BAD because it's part of human nature, again, the movie "A good old fashioned orgy" get it right in all it's points while this miserable movie get it all wrong.
I do love my wife and I do not think that having desire for other women destroys my marriage and I do think the Farrelly's only seem to be open minded when in the end, they are just seriously stuck on in the last century.
The last 10 minutes are not loving, they are horrible and painful.
So, if we man desire other women is because we didn't found out that our wives are the best, utterly awesome beings of light that never fails at anything and we should have eyes for her and only for her for the rest of our lives? Talking about a big cliché! I do love my wife but i'm human, realistic love is much more fun and light hearted than this piece of garbage is trying to sell us, but, as always, Hollywood has a tendency to give sermons about morality and concepts like we don't have neurons in our brains.
I totally hate movies that pretend to give us fun and in the end, they try to indoctrinate us to the "real moral values" that a good society should had.
Shame on you Farrelly's brothers!
