Sneak Peek: ‘Hall Pass’

A new comedy from the Farrelly brothers, “Hall Pass” stars Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis as married buddies whose wives grant them a week-long vacation from marriage, no questions asked...with interesting results.

In the film, best friends Rick and Fred (Wilson and Sudeikis) have both been married for a long time. They love their wives, but, like some guys, just can’t help checking out every other woman who crosses their paths.

Fed up with this habitual rubber-necking, their wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalize their marriages by granting their husbands a “hall pass”: one week of freedom to do whatever they want, no questions asked. Seven days to see exactly what it is out there they think they’re missing…or stop looking once and for all.

At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But they quickly discover that their expectations of the single life—and themselves—are completely and hilariously out of sync with reality.
The film also stars Richard Jenkins as the guys’ old friend and perpetual bachelor, Coakley.

“Hall Pass” is directed and produced by Peter Farrelly & Bobby Farrelly, from a screenplay by Pete Jones & Peter Farrelly & Kevin Barnett & Bobby Farrelly, story by Pete Jones.

The Farrellys’ approach was “Neither pro- or anti-hall pass,” says Peter. “We just thought about where it might lead and tried to be fair to the concept, its pitfalls and rewards. It’s not a story about being unhappily married; it’s just about being married and questioning aloud the kinds of things that people sometimes wonder about, like what would happen if you went down that road.”

Opening soon across the Philippines, “Hall Pass” is a New Line Cinema presentation to be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
