"Date Night" is exactly what a romping comedy should be. It's fun, funny, and even manages to string assessments of a modern marriage along its almost constant line of laughs and action.

Fey and Carrell's chemistry was great on this movie making the boring writing more funny and entertaining. Pretty good movie.

"Is it a man or a woman? I don't know! I don't know!"
The Foster's marriage has lost a little of its spark but both Phil (Steve Carell) and Claire (Tina Fey) are just so grateful to make it through each day with work and family pressures, that focusing on one another just seems unnecessary when sleep is so inviting. They maintain a weekly date night but when their friends (Kristen Wiig and Mark Ruffalo) mention they're getting divorced Phil decides to do something different and head to an exclusive spot in New York City for a meal. Of course it is full so Phil steals someone else's reservation, as they are being paged to be seated the "Tripplehorns" (played by James Franco and Mila Kunis in a hilarious cameo).

A married couple, Phil and Claire Foster (Steve Carell and Tina Fey), plans of having a dinner date to keep the spark going. They steal a reservation slot at Claw and gets into loads of trouble.

The soundtrack was enjoyable and artists were effective in bringing out the humor. If only the character of Wahlberg and Kunis were funnier and the lack of believability in the Audi stuck on the taxi sequence were more realistic. Nevertheless, the onscreen couple did a good job in bringing the picture its necessary laughs and lessons in …

After the somewhat disappointing ‘Bounty Hunter’, it seemed like tempting fate to check out the new release ‘Date Night’ with Tina Fey and Steve Carell. Like I said previously, actual date movies seem to be too far and between, so why not give it a go? Turned out to be a better call than I hoped for.
Directed by Shawn Levy (who also gave us the ‘Night At The Museum’ franchise and ‘Cheaper By The Dozen’), ‘Date Night’ is anything but predictable. Mixing comedy and a little couple’s introspection, the film manages to avoid being boring, and offers a number of genuine laughs without resorting to buffoonery.
Fey and Carell play Phil and Claire Foster, a couple who’s relationship has become mundane and are both beaten down by the daily grind. In an attempt to …
