Rick and Fred, two husbands who are having difficulty in their marriages, are given a Hall Pass by their wives: for one week, they can do whatever they want.
The flash forward scene with Stephen Merchant imaging he murders his wife and ends up in jail was thought up by Owen Wilson.
The way I see it, husbands are like a couple of cats. They're completely domesticated, and the first time you let them out they're so paralyzed with fear they'll come running back inside.
Grace: Yeah. But we're not talking about cats, we're talking about ...
When Rick pulls up to the beach house, the driver's side of the van isn't vandalized. In the next scene, outside with Fred and Grace, it is vandalized again.
