Directed by Bobby & Peter Farrelly
Starring Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate, Nicky Whelan, Richard Jenkins, Stephen Merchant
Well, the Farrelly brothers finally managed to bring up a film that is almost as good as their first films Dumb & Dumber and There's Something About Mary. Granted, Shallow Hal was hilarious as well. Owen and Sudeikis (to whom I've really taken a like into) play two men living in boring marriages until their wives decide to give them "hall passes", the freedom to do whatever they wish for a week without the restraint of marriage. With a lesser duo this might have failed miserably but Wilson and Sudeikis are brilliant and there are plenty of shamelessly hilarious gags to keep you grinning. At least I found myself laughing every five minutes and to me, that's a hell of a good ratio. Plus there's Stephen "UK's The Office" Merchant and Whelan's gorgeous tits. Hey, I'm just a regular guy. Deal with it.
