Rhode Island’s boys are back. The Farrelly Brothers‘ latest film, Hall Pass topped the box office last week, grossing $13,535,374 in its first weekend. The film upset predicted box office topper, Gnomeo and Juliet, putting the Farrelly directed comedy in first.
Hall Pass, starring Owen Wilson and “Saturday Night Live’s” Jason Sudekis as two men granted a week off from their marriages by their wives, is Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s first film since 2007′s Heartbreak Kid. The film boasts other big names like Christina Applegate and “The Office” star Jenna Fischer as the men’s restless wives, as well as appearances by Joy Behar and Alyssa Milano.
Like most of the brothers’ films, Hall Pass is set in New England, although it was shot in Georgia. The Rhode Island natvies’ next film is a Three Stooges reboot, rumored to star Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio del Toro as the goofy trio.
