The Cabin In The Woods, written by Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon, takes a page from Scream in that it functions as a commentary on the genre and the rules contained within. And while it is not all that scary, it is drolly funny and vastly entertaining – at least to a particular brand of moviegoer.

Such is the case with the Farrelly Brothers’ latest slapstick outing, Hall Pass.
