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.

Funny duo packs in the silly sex jokes, plus minor gun play.

Date Night is the perfect three-star comedy. It's not going to set the world on fire, but you'll wish that the rest of the cookie-cutter rubbish coming out of Hollywood was at least this consistently funny and enjoyable.

The combination of America's two best comedic talents in Steve Carell and Tina Fey makes Date Night a film worth watching.

Date Night succeeds chiefly in making the work that its two stars do on the same major television network seem anything but mainstream.

t's a funny movie and might snatch a few knowing nods from married couples with young children; at the very least, it's a consistently engaging, warmly silly adventure.

Thank goodness, then, that the well-paired leads are as charming and, yes, relatable, as ever. They're not really boring, even if the movie is.

What should be hilarious only ends up sort of amusing. Is it bad to only be amused? Not as such,but considering how hard they are clearly working to overcome the execution...

Shawn Levy tries to smash the fun with an unnecessary over-the-top car chase, but the stars are so likable they keep our interest on track.

Fey and Carell are as good a tag-team comedy duo as Lucy and Desi, maybe even Tracy and Hepburn -- charismatic comedians who have amazing chemistry together.

When sharp and funny performers like Steve Carell and Tina Fey are running on all cylinders, their vehicle doesn't have to be that classy.
