Hall Pass is a silly movie for all those guys who wished they could still fool around when married, all the while thinking it's their wife's fault.
It's funny, it has ridiculous ideas that it pulls off by sheer force, and it will go at some length of ridicule to extract a laugh from its audience. I must say that the safe room scene was freaking hilarious.
It's a lowball flick with Owen Wilson pulling an acceptable performance and Jason Sudeikis playing on par for his style. The little morals they try to pull in the story get swamped under all the rest, so it's just for fun, really.
Overall, you'll be entertained, but don't expect it do be anything else.
