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.


  1. Thats odd. We just watched this again this weekend. Overall, I felt the same as you, Tina Fey and Steve Carell have this easygoing, funny way about them that you sort of can't help getting caught up with. Now, this is an odd thing to say, I guess, because there obviously needed some intrigue for them to get into their situation. But I almost wish there were more of the quieter moments with them playing off eachother (I did think they were good as a married couple) or others, and less of the actual plot-if that makes sense. But what there was wasn't too bad. Although people need to stop casting Common in anything. Wow, I just wrote a lot about "Date Night".
