    "Hall Pass" is so bad, for the first time in my movie watching experience, I got up and walked out within the first hour.

    Webster’s Dictionary defines “funny” as “affording light mirth and laughter” or “seeking or intended to amuse.” “Hall Pass” may have sought to amuse, but it fell far short.
