Product Overview

Steve Carell and Tina Fey are "a match made in comedy heaven" (Ben Lyons, E!) in this uproarious adventure about an ordinary couple in the right place...on the wrong night. Phil and Claire Foster are a sensible, suburban husband and wife slogging through their daily lives and marriage. But a case of mistaken identity sets off an outrageous chain of events involving small-time thieves, big-city mobsters, corrupt cops and a crazed cabbie, as the Fosters' "date night" turns into a wild ride they'll never forget!

Editors Note
Note This action comedy tells the tale of mild-mannered married couple Phil (Steve Carell) and Claire (Tina Fey), who fear their relationship may be falling into a stale rut. During their weekly date night, they impetuously steal a dinner reservation, which leads to a case of mistaken identity. Turns out the reservation was for a pair of thieves, and now a number of unsavory characters want Phil and Claire killed. If they can survive a wacky life-threatening night, they may just rediscover the passion missing from their marriage. Directed by Shawn Levy, the film co-stars Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, and Kristen Wiig.
Reviews
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Carell and co keep mining shards of comic brilliance and, even more unlikely, some disarming glints of emotion." 03/16/2010
USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A]n absurd and wildly amusing night to remember. This is the rare screwball comedy that is superbly paced, cleverly plotted and hilarious from start to finish." 04/09/2010
Wall Street Journal "[S]uperbly absurd....Steve Carell and Tina Fey, are exactly what they seem. They're perfect casting in a short, sweet comedy that makes the most of their genial gifts..." 04/09/2010
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "Steve Carell and Tina Fey play a nice, unassuming couple in DATE NIGHT, and that's one of the reasons the movie works so well." 04/07/2010
A.V. Club "DATE NIGHT occasionally stumbles onto moments of emotional honesty when the subterranean currents of resentment and boredom in Fey and Carell's marriage puncture the surface." 04/08/2010
Washington Post 3 stars out of 4 -- "Regardless of the silliness of the situation -- or in truth, because of it -- they're a joy to watch." 04/09/2010
Hollywood Reporter "Ultimately, it's Carell and Fey, displaying an unmistakable chemistry together, who give the film its entertainment value..." 04/05/2010
Entertainment Weekly "Carell and Fey project an intellectual sharpness and an understanding of what's important in life -- and what's ridiculous....The leads provide their own excellent entertainment..." -- Grade: B 04/16/2010
Rolling Stone "Best of all is Mark Wahlberg in a nifty bit of self-satire as a shirtless weapons expert." 04/29/2010
Sight and Sound "There are funny moments....DATE NIGHT remains a reasonably amiable comedy that stressed parents will relate to..." 05/01/2010

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Steve Carell and Tina Fey play a nice, unassuming couple in Date Night, and that's one of the reasons the movie works so well. Their Phil and Claire Foster are a normal, overworked, sincere, good-natured New Jersey couple whose lives have become routine. But they love one another, and all they really want is to hire a babysitter and enjoy a nice night out on the town...We believe that. We're halfway prepared for a low-key romantic comedy when all hell breaks lose. They pretend to be an absent couple in order to grab a reservation at a trendy restaurant, and two hit men assume they are that couple and topple them into a screwball comedy. Yet all the time Phil and Claire seem like the kind of people who don't belong in a screwball comedy. That's why it's funny. They're bewildered...All of this is a way of saying that Date Night is funny because, against all odds, it is involving. Each crazy step in the bizarre plot made a certain sense because it followed from what went before; it's like the Scorsese masterpiece After Hours. The director is Shawn Levy, who committed the two Night at the Museum movies, and here shows that he is much more successful when he stays far away from CGI. Remember that he also made the entertaining Cheaper by the Dozen, with Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt as a hard-pressed married couple...A movie like Date Night encourages Hollywood comedy to occasionally dial down, and realize that comedy emerges from characters and situations and can't be manufactured from manic stunts and overkill. If you don't start out liking the Fosters and hoping they have a really nice date night, not much else is going to work.
