Trailer Watch: 'Hall Pass,' 'No Strings Attached' and 'Just Go With It'

Erik Davis

'Hall Pass'

'Hall Pass'Looks like there seems to be a theme among some upcoming romantic comedies, and that theme has to do with casual relationships. In Hall Pass, the Farrelly Bros. (There's Something About Mary) return with a comedy about a married man (Owen Wilson) who's given a "hall pass" to do whatever he wants for a week outside the marriage without consequences. Hilarity – as well as a funny attempted pick-up scene at Applebees – then ensues.
 
Is this a return to form for the Farrelly boys, who've had a few missteps since delivering gems like Mary and Dumb and Dumber? See for yourself by watching the trailer below, and see it in theaters on February 25th. 
 

 
'No Strings Attached'
 
Continuing with the theme of casual relationships, No Strings Attached features Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman as best friends who decide to try to have a casual relationship without all the unnecessary extra baggage getting in the way. Needless to say, after things are going good for awhile, both begin to realize that it's only a matter of time before feelings start to interfere. The film, which was directed by Ivan Reitman, is similar to another rom-com called Friends with Benefits starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. A red-band trailer for that film was also just released, and you can check it out over here.
 
As far as No Strings Attached goes, you can see that trailer below. Which comedy do you think looks better? This one hits on January 21st, 2011.
 

 
'Just Go With It''
 
Meanwhile, with Just Go With It, Adam Sandler stars as a plastic surgeon who convinces his assistant, played by Jennifer Aniston, to pretend to be his ex-wife in order to cover up a lie so that he can successfully woo a much younger gal. Sandler's go-to director Dennis Dugan (Grown Ups) was once again behind the camera for this one, which looks pretty cute and may be helped by its solid supporting cast, including Nicole Kidman, Brooklyn Decker, Dave Matthews, Nick Swardson, and Kevin Nealon.
 
Check it out below and let us know what you think. The film hits on February 11th, 2011.
