Date Night (2010)



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.

Critic Reviews for Date Night

All Critics (221) | Top Critics (43)

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.

Full Review… | September 28, 2012

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

Full Review… | April 8, 2012

... 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.

It got me some laughs so it was worth it. Plus, they're quite charismatic.

It's what happens when Steve Carell and Tina Fey remake Revolutionary Road.
