Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are best friends who have a lot in common, including the fact that they have each been married for many years. But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalizing their individual marriages: granting them a "hall pass," one week of freedom to do whatever they questions asked. At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But it isn't long before they discover that their expectations of the single life-and themselves-are completely, and hilariously, out of sync with reality.

2011 Guide Analysis: "Having made a name for themselves in the late 90's with some great gross-out comedies, the Farrelly brothers have had a string of disappointments in recent years ranging from the flat ("Fever Pitch," "The Heartbreak Kid") to the insulting ("Shallow Hal," "The Ringer").

Now they return with this sitcom-esque premise about two guys who get a free pass for a week to do whatever they want in order to spice up their marriage. You know where this is going - lots of jokes about awkward sex and pickup attempts, heavy morality lessons about being married makes these slobs so much better as people, chicks way out of the league of these guys offering themselves to them, etc.

The trailer throws in some wacky drug use, dumb dialogue, and Richard Jenkins in an interesting little cameo as an expert on the dating scene (though obviously not in fashion). The R-rating ensures it'll be crude, and the secondary lead role being played by rising comedy star Jason Sudeikis is a nice bit of casting, but ultimately this looks like a rental at best."
