STARRING Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, and Christina Applegate
DIRECTED BY Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly

It’s been four years since the Farrelly brothers’ last movie, a poorly received remake of The Heartbreak Kid, was released in theaters. Now the duo behind There’s Something About Mary is back with another raunchy comedy about men behaving badly? or at least attempting to. The title refers to the “hall pass” granted to Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) by their wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate). For one week, the boys are permitted to do whatever they want — including sleep with other women. Of course, things don’t go exactly as planned.
