Adolescent humor at its worst
A couple of married guys are given "hall passes" by their wives from marriage. They have an entire week away from their wives to do whatever they want. Hall Pass is the latest offering from the Farrelly Brothers, the team responsible for Dumb and Dumber, Shallow Hal, There's Something About Mary, and other slapstick comedies. The only reason I watched this is because I was at my in-laws for Xmas and they were watching it. About halfway through it, I started reading a book. Consisting mostly of crude jokes about sex and bodily functions, this film feels like it stole a few of my IQ points.
Slightly amusing, but mostly offensive, Hall Pass gets 1 out of 5 Poblanos!
