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.

Date Night takes two funny people, puts them in unfunny situations, and has them do and say unfunny things.

Fey, in particular, seems uncomfortable with the shenanigans.

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

It stumbles along as you're forced to sit through quite a bit of umming and aaahing and a car chase that lasts five minutes too long.

The screenplay never takes any particularly sharp, or even interesting turns. Needless to say, North By Northwest is not in risk of losing its crown as the funniest and most-action packed mistaken-identity caper.

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.

Thank you, Hangover, for making overly calculated screenplay 101's posing as off-the-cuff works of controlled insanity the norm for mainstream middlebrow comedy.

If you don't go into this thinking you're going to be laughing constantly, Date Night is a funny film and a fun time.

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.

While the Carell/Fey pairing looks like a winner on paper, Date Night somehow just isn't that funny.

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.
