Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis try Farrelly Brothers funny in the trailer for Hall Pass

Nov. 4, 2010by: Dave Davis

Though they've since made a few tries, I don't think the Farrelly Brothers have seen the same degree of comedic success as their brilliantly raunchy (and occasionally sticky) DUMB AND DUMBER and THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY.

Their latest attempt HALL PASS puts Owen Wilson with SNL's Jason Sudeikis, and appears to be trying to emulate the whole "30-something guys go from mild to wild" tone of movies like OLD SCHOOL and (naturally) THE HANGOVER. We'll see what the ratio of actual jokes in the movie compared to the trailer revelations ends up being.

The synopsis: Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are best friends who have a lot in common, including the fact that they have each been married for many years. But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalizing their individual marriages: granting them a "hall pass," one week of freedom to do whatever they want...no questions asked. At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But it isn't long before they discover that their expectations of the single life-and themselves-are completely, and hilariously, out of sync with reality.

Check out the trailer below or in HD at Apple.

Extra Tidbit: For the record, Stephen Merchant is awesome and could end up being the movie's secret weapon.

glad to see Jason Sudeikis getting a starring role. he's one of my favorites on SNL right now. and in a Farrelly movie, no less? should be great.

Why the fuck would these guys want a "hallpass"? One is married to Jenna Fischer and the other to Christina Applegate!!

OK...

...they should have made them both married to JOY BEHAR (playing duel annoying-as-shit roles)...not Fischer and Applegate...if it were "Dopple-Behars"...then I'd take the hall pass.

Will always love you Owen; I remember Bottle Rocket.

Yes! Owen is back! I hope. Hell, the media and talkbackers are so ignorant these days he might get roasted on this and, oh, f-off. Owen Wilson rules! This looks like the Farrelly Bros film I've been waiting for for a long time. Where's Ben Stiller been? Oh he sucks now making $ that really he doesn't need in order to survive and produce quality work!? Yes the man that made Cable Guy and The Ben Stiller show is excited to work with Brett "date rapist" Ratner. That's a boycott that is

Glad to see Sudeikis not in a rom-com! He deserves better! Think about the best SNL over the past few years, he's been a part of that!

GREENburg. He pocketed all that fockers, museum cash for GREENburg, GREENberg, whatever. Pretentious piece of shit.

While the premise is pretty good, the Farelly Bros have fallen into the same trap Kevin Smith has where the sappy third act ruins all the outrageous humor set up in the first 2 acts. I don't think they've made an honest to god balls out comedy since Me Myself and Irene and that was 10 years ago.

Actually looks pretty good!

After the debacle that was The Heartbreak Kid, I was a little weary on this one, but it looks hilarious! Looks like the Farrelly's are back in top form.

If Jenna Fischer was my wife...

I'd never look at another woman again. However, this trailer was pretty freaking awesome. Let's hope that the best parts weren't revealed in the trailer.

This looks hilarious. So many funny moments in the trailer and the ending with the girl surrounding herself with prettier girls was hilarious.

I was sold once J.B. Smoove from Curb Your Enthusiasm showed up. Looks like The Farrelly Bros may get their groove back.

Wow...a possible hit for the Farrelly Bros!

That actually looks pretty hilarious. For the record though...when you're married to a woman who looks like Jenna Fischer, you should be given a lobotomy if you ever have to look at another woman.
