Date Night (2010)
I thought this was an entertaining, well-paced film even though it wasn't actually that funny. Part of the problem is that Steve Carell and Tina Fey are arguably the two funniest people on television right now, in two of the juiciest sit-com roles--Michael Scott and Liz Lemon. So it's kind of underwhelming to see them in less than stellar material. Still, they were likable and the film had some decent scenes, and some nice cameo roles, including Mark Wahlberg as a perpetually shirtless black ops security expert.
