One of the worst movies ever
6 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

pointlessly crude, unfunny, insulting to any thinking person - this is a total vulgar piece of crap. One of the worst flicks I have ever had the misfortune to come across. Do yourself a favor and skip this.

There's something about "Hall Pass" that feels grosser than the usual Farrelly brothers comedy. There is a joke involving an explosion of human diarrhea, but it's not nearly as off-putting as the film's unlikable characters.

Everything feels forced. Nothing kills laughter faster than trying too hard.

TOTAL JUNK.DO NOT WATCH.
