Steve Carell and Tina Fey star in this romantic comedy of errors. Claire and Phil Foster (Fey and Carell) are a suburban couple who feel that their lives, including their weekly date night, have become humdrum and routine. In an attempt to rekindle their spark, they plan a romantic evening at a hip Manhattan bistro. But when they arrive at the glamorous venue, they get a lot more excitement than they bargained for when a case of mistaken identity turns their intimate evening into a hair-raising walk on the wild side. Mark Wahlberg and Kristen Wiig co-star.
Tina Fey and Steve Carell are two of the most charming performers in entertainment today. Their goofy attractiveness makes them a perfect couple in Date Night: an unremarkable husband and wife from New Jersey, they get mistaken for crooks in Manhattan, sending them on a wild night replete with snooty wait staff, crooked cops, glitter-specked strippers, a shirtless superspy (Mark Wahlberg, as buff as ever), and a preposterous car chase. The movie makes no effort to be remotely plausible and the last third really goes off the rails, and it would probably be better served by less familiar faces in minor roles (bit parts are played by Mark Ruffalo, Kristen Wiig, Common, James Franco, Mila Kunis, William Fichtner, and Ray Liotta). It's disappointing that the dialogue doesn't crackle the way it does on 30 Rock or The Office. But Fey and Carell carry the movie along through sheer nerdy pluck. Rarely does a couple in a movie seem genuinely devoted to each other, not out of wild passion, but for all the things that a real marriage is built on: patience, shared humour, a willingness to deal with day-to-day annoyances, and simple affection. Fey and Carell seem like a couple you'd actually enjoy going out to dinner with. In today's world, that's more romantic than sunsets and bouquets of roses. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

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.
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.
Despite a handful of brilliant gags, one or two excellent action sequences, and some surprisingly decent dramatic plotting, 'Date Night' does have its flaws. The film drags a bit in places, and the 'Extended Edition' of this DVD provides adds another ten minutes onto a running time that was already long enough to include all the film's best bits, and a few dull moments besides. There are also a few characters who just don't work, such as a babysitter whom suddenly turns nasty, and Wahlberg's irritating Holbrooke Grant (though Claire's flustered, flirty chemistry around him is wonderfully judged).Read more ›
Steve Carell is a great comedian and this film shows off his talents to great effect and Tina Fey was perfect as his wife.
This is a must-see film, particularly if one is feeling down in the dumps!
The supporting cast are good, and with the exception of Wahlberg, they are pretty much wasted. Liottaplays a stereotypical gangster, and the cliché of him eating in a restaurant with bodyguards is pretty cheesy.
But other than that, it's fast paced, never boring and edited tightly enough to keep the action and laughs constant.
It's the type of film that needs believability thrown out of the window to enable the audience to have a good time. There are enough funny lines and kooky characters to prevent the plot and story for what it is, a rehash of several other plots thrown together in order for two comedians to be allowed to improvise.
It's a guilty pleasure for sure, it's not intelligent comedy by any means, but comedy, and funny comedy nevertheless.
