synopsis (from wiki):
Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are best friends as are their wives, Maggie (Jenna Fischer) and Grace (Christina Applegate). They are both unhappy with their married lives and missing the old days when they were single. Realizing this, their wives talk to their friend Dr. Lucy (Joy Behar) and decide to give them a "Hall Pass": A week off from marriage during which they can have sex with other women. They are skeptical at first, but ultimately accept the offers and try to pick up women with their friends Gary (Stephen Merchant), Flats (J.B. Smoove) and Hog Head (Larry Joe Campbell). Maggie and Grace spend Rick's and Fred's "Hall Pass Week" at Maggie's parents' house in Cape Cod, where Grace flirts with athlete Gerry (Tyler Hoechlin). She says that if their husbands have Hall Passes, so should they.
this critics went hard for this film. 4.6 out of 10. well, movie is subjective.
apart of the open debate of the idea of giving your partner a hall pass (a.k.a 7 days break from your married life), plus the dragging sub-plot and below average jokes or funny act, the honest question of being a good husband and wife, having one and not realizing it, and living a good life and still expecting for more, as portrayed in this movie, for me were the only worthy reason to watch the movie.
