Hall Pass features a hilarious cast in a film that is consistently funny and very entertaining. The laughs rarely stop in this one.

There were some scenes early in the film where I couldn't catch every second joke because the audience was laughing so hard.

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.

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.

How many other comic auteurs today could follow fecal-splatter jokes with outbursts of naked emotion?

The Farrelly brothers once again combine raucous humour, outrageous vulgarity and genuinely heartfelt comedy for this surprisingly involving story about rediscovering the spark in marriage.

Seu sucesso reside na compreensão dos diretores de que os personagens devem ser tão importantes quanto as piadas.

March 11, 2011
Heavily relies on cheap stereotypes to bolster the laughs ... Expect the expected, and you'll snigger with laughter.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It ultimately scrapes a pass thanks to strong comic performances, a handful of decent laughs and the fact that the script actually manages to make the central relationship work.

If you're looking for an amiable giggle that both sexes will find horribly recognisable - plus poo and penis gags - Hall Pass is worth the babysitting money.

I'm sure many people on both sides of the fence will relate to these characters, though they probably won't tell their partners.

Has the smart, relaxed, real-life drive of the Farrellys' best comedies. (There are even two poop sight-gags that are shockingly funny.) Too bad the wives' storyline is so unfunny and uncomplicated.

It's very raunchy and it relies on a lot of stereotypes that come from other comedies of its type, but on the other hand It has an underlying sweetness.

Farrellys explore familiar themes in Pass.

It's heretical but true: I prefer my Farrelys sentimental.

James White
Empire Magazine

Not up there with the Farrelly brothers' classics, but still a worthwhile, farcical comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

There's a healthy dose of dirty talking, most of which purports to give voice to the way men really think - a great argument starter for those brave enough to consider this a date movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
