For #50 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on April 1st I watched: Hall Pass.
I passed on this one for quite some time (he he). Sorry, now I feel dirty.
I wasn’t sure if the Farrelly brothers could recapture the beauty that was Me, Myself, & Irene, or Kingpin, and while Hall Pass doesn’t quite reach the classics, it holds up pretty well on its own.
Maybe it’s just because I love Jason Sudeikis. The combination of Owen Wilson and the aforementioned Sudeikis is a fairly good one. Add that to the fact that some of my other favorite actors appear such as Richard Jenkins, Alexandria Daddario, and Stephen Merchant excite the formulaic nature of these comedies.
For a fairly good time, you should take the Hall Pass and get in that free nookie– oh God, I can’t, I can’t do this.
