A movie review.
We went to see Hall Pass today, and even though the trailers alluded to the idea that a week off of marriage for a 30-something suburban dad might not exactly be what he expected...I had no idea this movie was a chick flick. None. It had some of the ingredients of a Hangover type flick...raunchy comedy, sexual obsession, T&A, drugs, boys gone wild, full frontal male nudity of two different peni, varying in shade and size.
Those parts of the movie, I enjoyed. The crux of it? Notsomuch.
Totally unrealistic. Too unrealistic. The Harry Potter movies were more realistic that this flick. These dudes got a week off of marriage. What did they do? Went to have ribs at Applebees. Played a round of golf. Joined a gym. Talked the talk without walking the walk of all the tail they wanted to pursue over the next seven days. That's it?
I just happen to cohabitate with a 30-something suburban dad, and I think I have a pretty good idea of what would really happen if he was given a week off from marriage, with no rules, limits, or consequences. I can say with 100% certainty, that not once would he go to Applebees.
You know what he absolutely would do? He would round up a few good men, hop a plane to Vegas, and ride off into the desert in search of "strippers and cocaine."
But, noooooooooo...these douche-nozzles couldn't close the deal. They decided that their wives were too important to them, even though they had a hall pass.
I'm sorry...I ain't buying it. I call bullshit. I will go on the record to say, that if given clearance by the control tower to land their plane in
any old runway but mine a strange and exotic runway...a HUGE majority of hot blooded American, 30-something suburban dads are gonna land that plane, take off, and land it again. And again. And again.
The rationale behind my assumption? The wise words of one six year old little boy sum it up quite nicely, I think..."Boys have a penis...and girls have a brain. Right, Mom?"
Yeah...two thumbs down from me!
