It’s been a minute since I have reviewed a movie but I must say these two movies need them. Up first for review is Hall Pass staring Owen Wilson. I rented this over the weekend. I knew it was rated R so I thought well can’t be that bad I may let me daughter watch it. Well I am GLAD that I didn’t! I tell you rated R’s just aren’t what they used to be. They are practically soft porn. LMAO. So if you have children under the age of 17 they should not view this movie due to the showing of breast and penis! Here is the plot taken from Moviefone.
This buddy comedy from the Farrelly brothers stars Jason Sudeikis and Owen Wilson as a couple of married guys who persuade their wives to give them the ultimate “get out of jail free” card: a marriage “hall pass.” The agreement gives them free reign to behave like bachelors — free from the rules and confines of fidelity, responsibility, and married life — for one week. But soon the guys find that the small town where everybody knows them — and their wives — isn’t very conducive to chasing tail. And making matters worse, it turns out to be harder than they thought to accept the idea of their wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) taking off for vacation on a hall pass of their own.
Yesterday, being that Tuesday is the day for new DVD release’s I decided to reserve online Madea’s Big Happy Family at my local Redbox. I have mixed feelings about this movie. To begin this movie had horrible acting! Movie stars Loretta Devine, Bow Wow, Lauren London, Teyana Taylor and some of the regulars from Tyler Perry films. As much as I am a fan of Teyana Taylor her role got on my last nerve! Geez! Here’s the plot.
Adapted from the multi-talented playwright/filmmaker’s hit stage play of the same name, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family finds the cantankerous family matriarch using her unique brand of tough love to help her family weather some particularly rough waters. Madea’s niece Shirley has received a frightening medical diagnosis, and she’s having a hard time figuring out how to break the news to the rest of the family. Unfortunately she’s not the only one in the midst of a crisis, either: Kimberly is suffering from anger issues that are threatening to destroy her marriage; Tammy’s marital problems are being compounded by her disobedient children; and Byron is struggling to stay out of the drug trade after spending two years behind bars. Later, as a skeleton in the family closet pops into the picture, Madea and Aunt Bam show that love and laugher can help to overcome even the biggest obstacles.
In all I think I will need to view both movies again both had their flaws and I’d give them a C! Check them out at your local Redbox for only $1 a night with blu-rays at $1.50.
