THE FARRELLY BROTHERS USED TO HAVE TALENT. DUMB & DUMBER MAY NOT HAVE WOWED CRITICS IN 1994, BUT AUDIENCES HAVE MADE IT a CULT CLASSIC of SORTS. THEIR BEST WORK IS UNDOUBTEDLY 1998'S THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, A SLEEPER HIT THAT MADE CAMERON DIAZ AND BEN STILLER INTO STARS.

BUT THE FARRELLY BROTHERS TOOK A WRONG TURN WITH ME, MYSELF, AND IRENE IN 2000. THEIR NEXT 5 FILMS WERE VIRTUALLY IGNORED. NOW COMES HALL PASS, a MOVIE WITH ABOUT HALF THE CRITICAL SCORE OF DRIVE ANGRY 3-D, AND STARRING AN ENSEMBLE CAST THAT INCLUDES OWEN WILSON AND CHRISTINA APPLEGATE. 

SADLY, THIS FILM IS NOTHING TO LAUGH ABOUT, and EVEN THOUGH IT SOUNDS LIKE A TEEN-AGED SEX COMEDY, IT'S DOUBTFUL EVEN TEEN-AGERS WOULD FALL FOR IT.

It kind of looks like a forgotable film. Highly doubt that it will get any Razzie-nominations.

The Farrelly Brothers were one-hit wonders if you ask me. I mean have any of their movies been successful with critics and/or audiences since "There's Something About Mary"? And that movie was from over a decade ago!
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

You're right this should've been named "Worst Movie Of The Week",because it was.As for being nominated...well al of us think "no" because it's reviews won't be the worst of the year,but when has that stopped the voters?Anyway,it can be nominated it any category.Has anyone seen it?If you have,which categories you feel it should be up for?

If you ask my opinion, I think Owen Wilson should focus more on his writing (it's basically more of his strong point) since when he does writing he produces some pretty good stuff (e.g Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums).
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

I agree. Wilson's "man-child" act has become more stale than 3-month-old bread.

Hall Pass got bad reviews it was a commercial failure, hopefully the Farrelly brothers will do better in the future.

Is it not funny? I haven't watch it yet. Thanks for giving me an idea: I'll just wait for it on DVD, rather than watching it in a cinema!

I have to agree, Owen Wilson is the Hugh Grant of America. Same charactor in every film. I thought he was being paid to act LOL

I just saw it,but I won't review it.

I was surprised that the movie actually analyzes the subject,but not with enough depth.There's laughs in this movie but they're mostly forced.And the conservative aspect doesn't seem to fit for this kind of movie.Fans of the Farrellys will be dissapointed.

I don't think it should be nominated for anything.The performances were O.K.,just as the chemistry between the leads.

I give this 5/10.

It's rare that the Farrelly brothers get it wrong too many times... next time, maybe they'll do better

You know, just looking at Stephen Merchant makes me think he's possessed by the Devil or Satan.

Time for another review. I should mention that I didn't actually dislike this movie. In fact, I kinda liked it. Before I embaress myself too much, let's get to the review.
 
The good:
 
The humor: While low-brow, the film has it's moments. The end-credit scene, in particular, was funny.
 
Some of the acting: Owen was good and funny. Jason less so.
 
I saw it for free: I had a free-ticket to see it.
 
The bad:
 
The wives' scenes: While Owen and Jason were on their quest for sex, the film would often go back to their hot wives. The scenes aren't very good and stop the film in its tracks.
 
The ugly:
 
The sh*t scene: The scene was over-gross and an example of what many where fearing of this movie.
 
Well, that was a short review. Not a lot to really talk about. Grade: B-
 
Next-up: The Day After Tomorrow (SPECIAL REVIEW!!!)
