Excerpt: Enjoyed this movie, with plenty of laughs along the way. The PQ was solid and for a comedy the AQ was very good. If your a fan of Steve Carell I think you will love his work again. One to sit back and enjoy and for me certainly a movie I would watch over again. A keeper!
Summary: The suburban tax lawyer Phil Foster (Steve Carell) and the real estate agent Claire Foster (Tina Fey) have a boring married life in New Jersey. In their routine, they have once a week the "date night", when they hire a baby-sitter for their children and they have dinner in the same restaurant. When their best friends decide to divorce because of their routine, Phil decides to surprise Claire and have dinner in the fancy restaurant Claw in Manhattan.
Excerpt: Rented this movie thinking it was going to be a hilarious comedy. It wasn't what I thought it was going to be like. Steve Carell just seemed to be off his funny game in this one. I would recommend a rent first before purchasing.

Summary: Tina Fey + Steve Carell = A funny and surprisingly heartwarming film. Their on-screen chemistry is very good. They play the role as parents pretty well.

Summary: I wonder how many married couples out there can attest to their lifestyle being nothing but revolving around work, family and especially kids, with the latter just sapping whatever free time they have in their waking hours, only to find themselves stuck in a wash-rinse-repeat cycle. The film examines in a comical fashion of course, the lifestyle of the typical family with working parents and young children, and how there isn't anything known as personal time, and having...
