    Hall Pass

    Anyone else seen this movie? I think this may be the funniest movie I have seen in quite some time. I say that with all due respect to The Hangover(which is a classic) but Hall Pass had me in tears and uncontrollable laughter at least 4 times in this laugh out loud affair. I truly don't remember when a movie made me laugh so hard.

    Anyone else seen it?

    I thought it was one of the most uncomfortably bad, trying way too hard, movies I've ever seen. I laughed a few times, sure, but it was not good.

    Really? I loved it but I am guilty of sophomoric and lewd humor similar to the movie. Especially amongst my male friends.

    I laughed a lot out loud also but it was kind of cheesy and stupid. I thought it hit home with married guys for sure though. The final line of the movie though was classic when she said to him that she wanted him to take her to the Kathy Griffin show. Awesome !!!!

    It wasn't bad, I didn't love it or hate it.

    I haven't seen it. I thought it looked awful from the commercial and stayed away.

    I'd be surprised if anything tops The Hangover experience for me for a while.

    Since seeing the movie, I've stayed away from "listening to the radio" in my car at night while parked.

    I thought the same thing. Believe it or not my wife talked me into seeing it. I came away pleasantly surprised.

    Me too! This movie is no where near the level of The Hangover.

    Like I said, it was funny, I laughed a few times, but it was mixed in with long bouts of "what is the point of this movie" and when will it get funny again" to the awkwardness of the one wife actually cheating, it was just way too forced for me.

    The one saving grace was the blonde in the movie. WOWZERS!!!!!!

    No argument from me on the last line.

    I think The Hangover was definitely written better but Hall Pass will be added to my Blu-Ray collection. The scene at the house being caught on security cameras, the girl he picked up at the club with stomach pains and the hot tub scene all had me bowled over and crying in laughter. I also cracked up on night one of the hall pass they ended up over eating and going to bed. The irony had me laughing. As a married guy I can relate. I told my wife if I had a hall pass for a week that I would take a week off of work, I wouldn't do chores and I would drink Bud Light and play Call of Duty all week long with little to no interruption besides sleep.

    That was kind of strange to me as well.

    This movie was just OK. As for the blonde barista, she was smoking.

    The blonde chick was on fire hot! There were some funny parts (the chick sneezing in the hotel bathroom and the scene when they are on the security cameras) but overall it would give a C. I just think they were trying to be like the Hangover, which made it seem like they were trying too hard to be funny.

    Agreed, it was very forced.

    Alyssa Milano looked excellent in the movie as well. She has grown up a lot and busted out beautifully since her Who's the Boss days.
