Remember how Sean Penn was going to be Larry in a Farrelly Brothers-directed Three Stooges movie, and then Sean Penn wasn't going to be Larry in a Farrelly Brothers-directed Three Stooges movie because he decided he'd rather stay home and watch his marriage to Princess Bride crumble? Well, he's changed his mind again, and decided he'll go ahead and be Larry in a Farrelly Brothers-directed Three Stooges movie after all:
“We got him back,” Bobby Farrelly told the Track. “He always said he wanted to do it after, you know, taking care of his family.”
Allegedly, the Rhode Island-bred bros wanted to replace Penn with Paul Giamatti, but that didn’t pan out. So with their August shoot for “Stooges” DOA, Bobby and brother Peter turned their attention to another project - the lower-budget “Hall Pass,” a comedy starring Owen Wilson .
The funny flick is about a ho-hum hubby whose wife, looking to spice up their sex life, gives him a “pass” to play the field for a week. Hilarity ensues.
Forget this Three Stooges crap--this Hall Pass thing sounds HILARIOUS! For those too dim to immediately suss out that Owen Wilson will desperately struggle with accomplishing his week's task before ultimately reaching the conclusion that he loves his wife too much to sleep with any other woman, this film should prove a laughter-filled affirmation of the institution of marriage. Maybe you don't hate your wife as much as you claim when you drink.
