Date Night

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: A fairly high-powered cast gives a bit of an edge to this action-oriented romcom that takes the old "Three's Company" misunderstanding trick to a whole new level. Throw in a shirtless Mark Wahlberg and Tina Fey at her cutest and there is a little something for everyone in this harmless relationship movie that ultimately ends just as you'd expect.

In Theaters: Date Night

movieline.com
23 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Date Night succeeds chiefly in making the work that its two stars do on the same major television network seem anything but mainstream. NBC's primetime wonder twins Tina Fey and Steve Carell face a strange, almost quaint crossroads in their career: Having conquered the small screen, the received show biz wisdom would demand they dominate the big one. It may be time to call that model of stardom outmoded, especially if these are the paces they must be put through.

  • Excerpt: Have you ever watched a comedy and found yourself thinking, “This film has a terrible plot and paints by numbers, but I’ll be damned if [insert comedian] doesn’t make it work perfectly”? I’m hesitant to list specific examples because comedy is such a subjective genre, but I think we can all agree that a major part of what makes one work is the timing and delivery of its stars.

Date Night Blu-ray Review

BigPictureBigSound
23 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The Film Steve Carell and Tina Fey are definitely part of the A-list. The proof is in the success of Date Night . Two of the funniest people on TV sounds like a recipe for box-office gold. Despite the $152 million and one of the largest all-star casts ever, the movie plays more like a bad rerun. Carell and Fey star as Phil and Claire Foster, a Jersey couple who are stuck in a routine marriage and lame jobs.

Date Night

High-Def Digest
16 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Shawn Levy's 'Date Night' is a very entertaining and funny screwball romantic comedy. The success of this madcap adventure about a marriage in auto-pilot suddenly turning into a dangerous game of mistaken identity is largely due to the union of its two comedic stars, Steve Carell and Tina Fey. And the film is terrifically supported by an amusing cast of cameos, making this a great date movie that couples can enjoy together.

Date Night Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
12 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Date Night , ironically, isn't really worth the $20 you'd spend to take your significant other out on a date night of your own to see it in the theater. Steve Carrell and Tiny Fey are often hilarious when pursuing their own comic endeavors, but here, under the heavy-handed, joke-flattening direction of Shawn Levy—the guy responsible for Cheaper by the Dozen and The Pink Panther remake—they seem oddly constrained and awkwardly unfunny.

Date Night Review

DoBlu
11 August 2010
  • Excerpt: When Date Night has energy, it can be hilarious. The film’s highlight, a two-car accident that leaves the vehicles hooked to each other, then resulting in a chase around New York, is priceless. The cab driver (J.B. Smoove) hooked to Phil (Steve Carell) and Claire (Tina Fey) Foster produces some priceless and expressive screams as they zip around, trying to avoid the potentially crooked cops who are after them.

Date Night

Cinema Blend
9 April 2010
  • Excerpt: If you find yourself watching Date Night this weekend, remember: it's OK to laugh. No, the movie isn't nearly as funny as any given episode of The Office or 30 Rock , and yes, the script and the direction do repeatedly insult the audience by assuming we can't get a joke or an emotional moment unless the entire film screeches to a halt to point it out.
