Not a bad watch
12 June 2013 | by apb216See all my reviews

I actually didn't have any expectations for this movie so I wasn't disappointed by it. Did I love it? No, but I didn't dislike it. It was a great movie for a nice rainy day with nothing to do but catch up on movies, so when it came on HBO I watched it because there wasn't much else to watch and I enjoyed it. I laughed at some parts and there were some good heart warming moments too. I'm not a big Owen Wilson fan (because it drives me crazy that an actor who must have a decent amount of money doesn't use it to FIX HIS BROKEN NOSE! ARE YOU READING THIS OWEN?!), his voice is a bit monochromatic for me, but he has been in great movies so I don't dislike him either.

This is about two guys who tend to not try and hide the fact that they notice a lot of women and their wives grow tired of it, so they take the advice of an older friend and give their husbands a 'hall pass' from marriage. They take a week off of marriage and whatever happens stays between the two of them. At first Owen is reluctant but his friend is excited and talks him into it. They round up their guy friends and go on adventures only to slowly discover their age has caught up with them. The women retreat to a vacation home and end up having some adventures of their own.

In conclusion, it's a decent watch with some life lessons and funny moments and would make a great addition for a casual movie night.
