Date Night tells the story of a married couple (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) who are stuck in a bit of a rut and whose lives revolve around their kids and work (just like so many of us). However, the similarities end when they get mistaken for criminals during their weekly `date night' and are ruthlessly hunted down across New York by the mob.

I feel after that brief plot summary I should write `...with hilarious consequences.' However, that would not be accurate. Date Night is not a `laugh a minute' film. I actually think it's better than that. It goes to great lengths to portray a `normal' married couple who, although are happy together, there's still that little something - call it a spark? - that's gone out. It's a funny film, but mixed with decent observations and character development that lifts it emotionally from the likes of American Pie and The Hangover.

It's funny and entertaining and, although not that original in its storyline, the chemistry between Carell and Fey is undeniable. I think that most couples married for a long time will easily understand the situation of Phil and Claire.

A great date movie.

I'd heard great things about this film, afterall it throws the a King and a Queen of American Comedy together. Personally i don't really like Steve Carell, he annoys me but in this film he actually came across as a really likable guy. Fey is on top form and is fantastic as ever. Both actors give it their all and there is chemistry between them, you can believe they are a couple.

The script is fantastic though admittedly there are afew lines that are meant to be funny but don't quite work. Thats just my view. The storyline; a couple is growing apart due to the pressure of daily life including kids and work. Determined to bring the spark back into their marriage they decide to go on a date but when they get to the restaurant they find it fully booked. When a couple who booked a table don't turn up Carell & Fey decide to take their place. It turns out that the couple whose identity they have stolen are wanted by criminals. I won't say too much more because i don't want to give away everything. Really though the story isn't the most important thing, its all about the laughs. My favourite parts: the escape in the slowest boat ever & the sex robots. If you want to laugh and cheer yourself up, if you want a easy to watch film which isn't demanding at all you can't do much better than this.

The movie starts out showing us Tina and Steve as a typical NJ couple with a boring life. Once a week they have a date night where they go out to the same restaurant and order the same food. For entertainment they "guess" what the story is, or mini-biography behind other couples eating at the restaurant. perhaps one of the better scenes with these two. They are also once-a-weekers in the bedroom. When their neighbors get divorced because they were in a similar rut, Steve re-examines their routine and decides to do something different by going to a different restaurant. Then, in a case of mistaken identity, they get hunted down by two rouge cops working for the mob.

There are some great scenes such as the bit role by Mila Kunis, and the taxi cab scene. There are also some scenes that didn't play well such as serious scenes between Steve and Tina as they discuss their life. Neither Carell or Fey pull those scenes off very well.

The comedy is good, but not constant. The attempt to make it into some kind of romantic comedy was bad.

Date Night may not be a comedy to grace the top 10 (or 100) lists of best films ever but Steve Carell and Tina Fey pull off an entertaining couple of hours worth of relaxing comedy in this one. They play a typical middle class couple looking for some excitement on their date night, where a case of mistaken identity thrusts them into an environment completely out of their comfort zone.

In my opinion Steve Carell does a better job than in Dinner for Schmucks [DVD] and Tina Fey actually manages to play a convincing mother and wife. The story, of course is farfetched but not to the extent to be in any way a disturbance to enjoying the comedy.

With the exception of one or two scenes, the movie is unlikely to remain memorable for long but as light entertainment, it does its job really well, and if you are after a bit of laughter, you could do much worse than this on Friday night.

If you we're wondering about watching this, don't. Steve Carrel and Tina Fey are well cast leads for this, and their portrayal of a suburban couple in way over their heads is believable and funny.

As a big Steve Carrel fan I had high hopes. Steve does comedy just as fluently as he does "normal family guy", and he mixes it with his usual style of slightly dry, but brilliant timed comedy in this. Tina Fey is great as his loving wife and they really spark together on screen. The supporting roles are we'll cast and compliment the plot well.

The plot:
Well, you can read the blurb for that. My take on it was that it was perhaps a little too ambitious. It's the "mistaken identity" plot as seen in literally thousands of films. And it's a hard one to pull off, especially as a comedy. Date Night tried hard to pull it off and in places it did it well, in others it didn't quite hit the mark. This was evident as the the plot pace fluctuated throughout most of the film.

Sometimes it seemed to loose it's pace and become a little slow, bogged down in certain scenes that went on too long with not enough humour. Others flow like a well oiled machine, and are genuinely hilarious.

Although at times it's a little hit and miss, overall the humour is good and keeps up with a good story. When it comes together it comes together perfectly, and thankfully this is for at least 70% of the film.

You could do much worse than to watch Date Night. It's funny, it's witty, at times it's sharp, poignant, and touching. It's a romantic comedy with a twist.
