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 revitalising their individual 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.
Rick (Wilson) and Fred (Sudeikis) are granted a week's "pass" from marriage, with the freedom to live out their sexual dreams. But they're less than happy when their wives (Fischer and Applegate) are also tempted to let loose. Can the couples work it out?
Not up there with the Farrelly brothers' classics, but still a worthwhile, farcical comedy.
