Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis team up in this latest comedy following best friends Rick (Wilson) and Fred (Sudeikis), who like most friends share everything in common.
Having both been married for many years, the two start to become distracted from their loved ones, wanting to experience something new in their lives. Taking a bold approach to revitalise their marriages, their wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) grant their husbands a “hall pass”, a week of freedom to do whatever they want to without any questions asked.
What at first sounds like a dream come true for the pair of them, soon turns into a week of disappointment and hard work, as the hype of living the single life escalates into a series of hilarious and out of sync expectations with reality that soon become out of control.
From comedy duo the Farrelly brothers who brought us There’s Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber, this newest outing promises plenty more laugh out loud moments and will make even the most confident of people reassess their chat up lines.
