The UK trailer for the Farrelly Brothers comedy Hall Pass has gone online. The film stars Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis as a couple of married guys whose wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) give them a week to try and cheat consequence-free. I don’t have much faith in the Farrellys delivering a solid comedy (There’s Something About Mary was a long time ago and The Heartbreak Kid was wretched), but this looks like it could be a nice opportunity to Sudeikis to shine.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Hall Pass opens in the US on February 25th and in the UK on March 11th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hall Pass:
Best buds Rick and Fred (Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis) have both been married for many years. When they begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalize their marriages: they grant the guys a “hall pass,” one week of freedom to do whatever they want. No questions asked.
At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred, but they quickly discover that their expectations of the single life—and themselves—are completely and hilariously out of sync with reality.
