Sneak Peek: 'Hall Pass' Starring Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate

A new comedy from the Farrelly brothers, �Hall Pass� stars Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis as married buddies whose wives grant them a week-long vacation from marriage, no questions asked...with interesting results.

In the film, best friends Rick and Fred (Wilson and Sudeikis) have both been married for a long time. They love their wives, but, like some guys, just can�t help checking out every other woman who crosses their paths.

Fed up with this habitual rubber-necking, their wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalize their marriages by granting their husbands a �hall pass�: one week of freedom to do whatever they want, no questions asked. Seven days to see exactly what it is out there they think they�re missing�or stop looking once and for all.

At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But they quickly discover that their expectations of the single life - and themselves - are completely and hilariously out of sync with reality.

The film also stars Richard Jenkins as the guys� old friend and perpetual bachelor, Coakley.

�Hall Pass� is directed and produced by Peter Farrelly & Bobby Farrelly, from a screenplay by Pete Jones & Peter Farrelly & Kevin Barnett & Bobby Farrelly, story by Pete Jones.

The Farrellys� approach was �Neither pro- or anti-hall pass,� says Peter. �We just thought about where it might lead and tried to be fair to the concept, its pitfalls and rewards. It�s not a story about being unhappily married; it�s just about being married and questioning aloud the kinds of things that people sometimes wonder about, like what would happen if you went down that road.�

Opening soon across the Philippines, �Hall Pass� is a New Line Cinema presentation to be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
