GOOD FOR ONE WEEK OFF MARRIAGE.
Tired of watching their husbands (Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis) still behave like college kids, Maggie and Grace (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) give them a “hall pass” – one week off from marriage during which they can have sex with other women if they want. Die-hard fans of the Farrelly brothers will be pleased to note their return to raunchy comedy; most of the jokes here revolve around either sex or bodily functions (there’s an unforgettable scene involving a sneeze). A few embarrassed laughs here and there, but the poor script sinks it.
