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.

Gratuitous, Full-Frontal Male Porn. It's sad.
12 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie rates an "F" for Full Frontal male nudity on several occasions that had nothing to do with the movie or plot. I believe they were trying to see how far they could push the envelope. It was offensive and disgusting for an R-rated film; it would've been appropriate for X-rated porn. I am sad that the talented and hilarious Farrelly Brothers lowered themselves into the sewer.

Other than that, however, the rest of the plot was also highly offensive -- two "poor husbands," who want nothing more than to cheat on their wives, who are portrayed more like mothers and guardians than partners. This is hardly the typical middle-class family in my experience, and hardly a theme for a comedy.

They Failed, big-time.
