Watch: Red Band Trailer For 'Hall Pass' Slightly Better, Proves Richard Jenkins Is Amazing

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist February 18, 2011 at 7:05AM

We've always got a lot of hope for the Farrelly Brothers but we're unsure why. The duo haven't made a decent comedy in over a decade, and their recent output has paled greatly to the new school raunch comedy directors led by Judd Apatow and his merry band of filthy mouthed thesps. So here we have "Hall Pass," a film that has a good concept, but that failed to impress us with its first trailer. However, a new red band trailer for the film has arrived courtesy of Digital Spy and it's a slight improvement, with a couple of well-earned big laughs and Richard Jenkins showing up and pretty much stealing the whole thing.

We've always got a lot of hope for the Farrelly Brothers but we're unsure why. The duo haven't made a decent comedy in over a decade, and their recent output has paled greatly to the new school raunch comedy directors led by Judd Apatow and his merry band of filthy mouthed thesps.

However, a new red band trailer for the film has arrived courtesy of Digital Spy and it's a slight improvement, with a couple of well-earned big laughs and Richard Jenkins showing up and pretty much stealing the whole thing.

Starring Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate, J.B. Smoove and Stephen Merchant, the story follows two horny dudes whose wives' allow them one week to pursue extramarital sex without consequences. We'd really love to see one of them actually accomplish that mission if only to make for a more interesting film, but we'd guess that's not gonna happen. But hey, maybe we'll be surprised.

"Hall Pass" opens next Friday the 25th; check out the trailer below.
