When it comes to movie trailers for comedies, they only thing they need to do to win me over is laugh. I’m critical about most things, but not comedies. When it comes to comedies, I’m a pretty easy guy to please. I love Steve Martin’s Pink Panther for god’s sake! Regardless, it’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed a trailer for a comedy like I have for this one. Well, it’s been since Due Date, to be exact. But I digress. The two leads look mighty funny, and I’m glad that the great actor that is Jason Sudeikis is finally getting his due. Owen Wilson looks fun as well and, even though I still can’t distinguish from Jenna Fischer and “Pam from The Office,” the two wives look good in it as well. In general, this trailer made me laugh a good amount. And that’s all it takes, really.
Hall Pass is the story of two guys, Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis, who one day get a Hall Pass, which grants them the ability to do whatever the hell they want. Sleep with any woman, drink into their hearts content. Anything. So as the guys set out perusing in the night, the wives too find excitement and sex in the air when they receive Hall Passes of their own. In a week with no rules, anything can happen. And most likely will happen.
Hall Pass comes out February 25, 2012. Just in time for Valentine’s Day. What a way to celebrate the occasion than a film about cheating on your spouse. Love is beautiful, is it not?
