DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a raunchy and at times gross-out comedy aimed at young adult males. Fans of the main four stars should be pleased. Language, sex, and violence make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good it's better than one expects from it, and that's as unique a quality as its other characteristic: a comedy that's sporadically funny.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average A problem with "Hall Pass,” I think, is that both Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis are affable, and the movie wants us to like them. It is often more useful for a comedy to have characters whose embarrassment we enjoy.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average A hall pass in the movie of the same name is like time off for bad behavior.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 77 moviegoers:
TEENS:The four teens all loved "Hall Pass."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The males rated "Hall Pass" very high with most absolutely loving it. The female reviews are not as high as male reviews but they are still quite good. Close to half loved it and most of the rest rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Also important is that no one rated it lower than "average."
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are nearly identical. About half loved "Hall Pass." Another quarter rated it above average, which is very good and the rest rated it average. These are very typical reviews and indicate a movie most enjoyed very much and no one disliked.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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 marriages: granting them a "hall pass," one week of freedom to do whatever they want...no 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.
