Hall Pass features a hilarious cast in a film that is consistently funny and very entertaining. The laughs rarely stop in this one.
| Original Score: 8/10
The first truly terrible picture of 2011.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
The Farrelys have lost their comic fastball. And curveball. And changeup.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
A serviceable comedy outing with a number of surprisingly funny moments, along with a number of shocking but dumb-witted set-ups.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Have the Farrellys lost their touch? Once adept at crafting trashy, lowbrow gags way too funny to be ignored, they seem totally tin-eared with 'Hall Pass.'
Wilson and Sudeikis make an amusingly goofy pair.
| Original Score: B-
The joke is supposed to be that it's sad to see these guys so desperate for a lay, but in truth, it's even sadder to see the brothers this desperate for a laugh.
...looks and sounds more like a raunchy, worn-out television sitcom than a Farrelly product.
| Original Score: 4/10
If you are the world's biggest fan of movies that bake adultery, family, self-esteem, and your true life's purpose into a cake frosted with d**k jokes, this is your film.
Farrelly brothers still gross out, but come up short on laughs
There were some scenes early in the film where I couldn't catch every second joke because the audience was laughing so hard.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
"Hall Pass," actually shot in Georgia, boasts the production values of public access TV. The masturbation / marijuana jokes aren't worthy of a Farrelly outtakes reel.
| Original Score: 1/4
I laughed from beginning to end... a comedy classic.
| Original Score: 5/5
Sound depressing? It is. For everyone.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Packaged around R-rated gags, some of them of the gross-out scatological variety, is a heart-felt commentary on monogamy.
A lot of the comedy in the Farrellys' newest R-rated movie, 'Hall Pass,' is strictly visual shocks that, most of the time, will have you laughing after you gasp out loud.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
We're left with a week of two guys not even trying to make the most of their freedom, and though that alone doesn't make for enough of a movie, in Hall Pass, that's all you're going to get.
| Original Score: 2/5
Tired-looking marital sitcom.
The ultimate message is "there's no place like home," just like The Wizard of Oz -- but trust me, this one ain't for the kids.
| Original Score: 3/5
How many other comic auteurs today could follow fecal-splatter jokes with outbursts of naked emotion?
