HALL PASS (2011) NINE, 9.30PM; NBN, 10PM, MA15+, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

It’s not such a rare thing for cou­ples to give each other a “celebrity free pass” – mean­ing if they were ever in the po­si­tion to step things up a notch with their favourite Hol­ly­wood A-lister, it wouldn’t be con­sid­ered cheat­ing. This, of course, hap­pens but once in a blue moon. So you can un­der­stand the sheer joy of bored mid­dle-aged men Rick (Owen Wil­son) and Fred (Ja­son Sudeikis) when their wives (Jenna Fis­cher and Christina Ap­ple­gate) give them a “hall pass” – one week where they have the freedom to do what­ever they want. Nat­u­rally, the blokes regress in ma­tu­rity a notch or three, which does pro­vide a few laughs, but the Far­relly broth­ers have done bet­ter. ★★★
