Whatever happened to Peter and Bobby Farrelly? One minute, they're making 'Dumb and Dumber' and 'There's Something About Mary' and doing a pretty good job of defining a new generation of raunchy, gross-out comedy, and then 'Osmosis Jones' happens to them. And 'Shallow Hal.' And 'Fever Pitch.' And finally, 'The Heartbreak Kid,' which may not have been a nail in the coffin, but it was definitely a nice solid kick to their careers' shin.
Well, they've had a few years to lick to their wounds and now they've returned to the cinematic scene, bringing with them a trailer for their newest opus, 'Hall Pass.' It's a simple enough premise: two women give their bumbling husbands a week-long "hall pass" to pretend they're not married and do whatever, and presumably whomever, they want. Complications and hijinks and poop jokes ensue.
