Quotes

Rick: We let down the male species, you know that?
Fred: Maybe you were right. Maybe we should call it a day, just ask the girls to come home.
Rick: NO! I want the Hall Pass, okay? At first I wasn't sure, but now I know I want it.
Fred: I don't even know what the dream is anymore...
Rick: I'll tell you what it is: I want to remember what it feels like to be with someone who really WANTS to be with me, out of pure desire, not because they HAVE to out of some sense of duty.

Why all the haters?
7 March 2011 | by doomsyerSee all my reviews

I don't understand all the haters on here about this movie? I thought it was funny and laughed all the way through, and so did my wife. It is a lot funnier than Little Fockers was, and that is not saying much. It is a great movie to go and watch and just sit back and laugh and forget your troubles. What is wrong with some crude humor? I guess since I am in my 40s, and have friends that talk and act like the ones in the movie, it just was funnier to me...who knows....

I guess to each their own......

For me, I wish they would put out more funny movies like this. I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time....
