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.

Claudia Puig, USA Today This is the rare screwball comedy that is superbly paced, cleverly plotted and hilarious from start to finish.
Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post Regardless of the silliness of the situation - or, in truth, because of it - they're a joy to watch.
