Movie: Hall Pass

We also ended up watching Hall Pass , it wasn’t too over the top crazy…but really really close.  I liked it, the idea sounds intriguing but its not for me…I don’t have a need to do anything but DRIVE myself to work in a car.  The cast was pretty packed… Owen Wilson (I last saw him in Little Fockers ), Jenna Fischer (I watch her on The Office , the last movie I saw her in was The Promotion ), Christina Applegate (I last saw her in Surviving Christmas ), Lauren Bowles (She’s on True Blood ) and Jason Sudeikis (SNL guy).  After they both got their Hall Pass (An imaginary week to forget your married, no strings attached*), it was obvious where all of the comedy was going to come from, there were plenty of situations that helped build up to the comedy finale and then their redemption.  So yeah, kind of predictable.  I liked the chatty character that Owen Wilson played, especially when the girl dumped her top for him. Deep Thought: If you’re married, how far would you make it in this situation?  Are you a Rick or a Fred ?  Is your wife a Maggie or a Grace ? Likes: The babysitter’s aunt’s son, the babysitter (she’s kinda hot), Jenna Fischer (She’s good outside of The Office too!), Coakley (the older guy that gets all of the chicks…just the vulnerable ones), Applebees (really, that’s where all of the hot chicks are?! Syke, they are all at Chilis! Everyone know this!), Coakley’s hot chick de-bunking technique (I’m gonna try it), faux chow, and faux job, “I gotta take the trash out” (then stay’s in the car to… ), the Long family house tour, the massage parlor curtain to the dry cleaners…there are too many! Dislikes: Grace (what a whore bag, times 2, because she did it and never told), Baseball team (why would the player’s take these chicks this serious, then why would the coach go so far to take advantage of Maggie) I’m giving this one a 8/10, it was a good comedy…I’d watch it again to see the other small things I missed the first time because I was laughing.
