Watch: Amusing Red Band Trailer for Farrelly Brothers' 'Hall Pass'

"This is why we need to go to a gay bar." New Line has debuted one more brand new red band trailer via IGN for their upcoming comedy Hall Pass, directed by the comedy duo of the Farrelly Brothers, starring Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate. It's another infidelity comedy (we've seen a lot of those this year) and I don't think anyone really cares about it. Despite being occasionally amusing in spots, this trailer and the entire movie just look dull and very unfunny. I guess that's the Farrelly Brothers for ya. And it is still awesome to see Richard Jenkins as a pimp in this, but that's it. Have fun!
Watch the new red band trailer for the Farrelly Brothers' Hall Pass:
A married man (Wilson) is granted the opportunity to have an affair by his wife. Joined in the fun by his best pal, things get a little out of control when both wives start engaging in extramarital activities as well.
Hall Pass is directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly, comedy brothers who've brought us classics like Dumb & Dumber, There's Something About Mary, Shallow Hal, Stuck on You and The Heartbreak Kid. The script was written by the Farrellys, Pete Jones (Stolen Summer, Outing Riley) & Kevin Barnett (The Heartbreak Kid). New Line/Warner Bros is bringing Hall Pass to theaters everywhere starting February 25th, 2011.

Did I miss something in this trailer. I didn't laugh once. It seemed like it wants to be funny but in the end it seems like the jokes are forced.

I think you missed the entire trailer.

Finally a blogger who understands that naughtier language doesn't necessarily = funnier.

Dunno what this hallpass is about, surely if your married and need extra sex you just go get it with your wife's friends. Easy pickings.

Am I the only person that thinks this is hilarious?! I do agree w/ Alex that the Farrelly brothers have lost it, but this looks like this could be jokes!

Fucking hilarious! You guys who think this is lame, are probably the same pussies who think Black Swan is great.

I laughed my ass off, come on its funny. Think some people are being a bit "HIGHBROW" and taking life waaaaay to seriously.

The PG rated trailer isn't bad. This red band version is just north of awful. Some artistic types simply lose their mojo at some point. It looks like the Farrelly brothers may be the latest example. Doesn't bode well for that Three Stooges project. What could be more painful than a bad Stooges homage?

Man whatever, that Sh!t was funny.
