Date Night (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: An uneasy blend of action and comedy, Date Night doesn't quite live up to the talents of its two leads, but Steve Carell and Tina Fey still manage to shine through most of the movie's flaws.


Movie Info

Their union in imminent danger of becoming hopelessly monotonous, the desperate couple goes to unprecedented lengths in order to preserve the spark. Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, and Kristen Wiig co-star in the 20th Century Fox production.

Fey, in particular, seems uncomfortable with the shenanigans.

Top Critic

As believable as the story is, it's strange that the filmmakers didn't do more with the talent they had on hand.

Date Night is only ever moderately funny; partially entertaining; quite exciting. It bears the mark of a cinematic no-mark; a bland director whose cast members deserve way better than him.

Levy knows better to simply stay out of the dynamic duo's way and let them do their proven thing.

... Works as an action-comedy precisely because its characters do not know they are in either a comedy or an action movie.

Ultimately, and thankfully, it's saved by its stars, who carry it all to safety as often as they can.
