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.

Time Out
Top Critic

Fey, in particular, seems uncomfortable with the shenanigans.

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?

Top Critic

Fey, in particular, finds herself in the situation of a prima ballerina unaccountably dancing with the Rockettes.

New Yorker
Top Critic

In three or four scenes, they get a rhythm going, but the editing is smash-and-bash. Shawn Levy is not a director who honors performers' rhythms.

Top Critic

Tina Fey is really funny. Steve Carell is really funny. Date Night stars Tina Fey and Steve Carell. Ergo, Date Night must be really ... sorry, I wish it worked that way almost as much as the studios do. But no.

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.
