12th March: Hall-Pass

Two husbands are given a week off from marriage to relive their sexual fantasies of their youth.

This film breaks a rule comedies usually use; in that all the funny bits are in the trailer. They aren't. There are some really funny bits in this film. I'll not spoil them, but its funny.
Now the cast, Owen Wilson didn't really exceed expectations, he was his usual self, which was alright. The major "lol"s mainly coming from Jason Sudeikis, whom I have no previous experience of, but hope to see him in more movies. The supporting cast were on top notch too: both Christina Applegate and Jenna Fischer were hot and funny. Steve Merchant proved for me that he doesn't need Ricky Gervais to be funny. There is a funny pre-credits scene with him which might be my fave bit of the film.
Despite it being full of laughs I did think that the story at the end was dragged out slightly, but Merchant's scene at the end more than made up for it.

Overall: 8/10
