Date Night

Critics 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

Steve Carell and Tina Fey star in director Shawn Levy's comedy about a couple whose routine date night becomes anything but when dinner and a movie just won't suffice anymore. 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.

  • For a film that doesn't even scrape the 90-minute mark, Date Night takes an awfully long time to end.

  • Okay, this is only a farcical fable, but with another director it might have been a little more than that.

  • It's lively stuff with funny lines, droll cameos from Mark Wahlberg and James Franco, and a nice running gag about Jeanne Tripplehorn.

  • It's not that Fey and Carell don't make for a convincing onscreen couple; they simply overplay their 'embarrassing parent' shtick far too early and are left spitting cheap soundbites at each other in a genial, neverending bout of one-upmanship.

    Apr 23, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • Fey and Carell are better than this, but when the other options in the action-romcom territory include such efforts as The Bounty Hunter, who's complaining?

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.

Reasonable crime caper comedy which survives simply due to it starring Steve Carell :) there isn't too much to offer here, the plot is pretty basic, the acting is standard and the small 'action' sequences are nothing special or exciting, much like 'Get Smart' its good because of the dialog, awkward facial expressions and situations 'Michael Scott' errr Steve Carell gets into hehe problem is you always expect John Krasinski or Rainn Wilson to pop up whenever you see Carell. Fun film if your bored, nothing to shout about.
