I found Date Night not only funny but charming, one of the most enjoyable comedies I've seen recently. While the couple fights at times, ultimately they are genuinely kind and enjoy each other. The humor isn't mean-spirited and snarky, like, for example, Get Him to the Greek or Grown Ups. (I loved Get Him to the Greek, btw, and hated Grown Ups, which was too dumb even for me.) Date Night manages to be warm-hearted but not sentimental or cloying. It's refreshing.
I will say it gets off to a very slow start, showing us how boring the couple's life is, but once Fey and Carell are running around the city, the pace picks up and the movie gets very funny. (Ridiculous but funny.) It's worth watching just for a truly hysterical scene with James Franco and Mila Kunis. Plus, there's the funniest pole dancing scene ever.
Carrell and Fey play a nearly middle aged married couple with kids. They have a comfortable suburban life, and are still fond of each other, but they are also clearly just a bit worn out by life. "Date Nights" for them consist of going to a local steak restaurant, with worn-out décor and no sense of romance whatsoever. And in time-honored, clichéd tradition, they wonder if they are still in-love with the other...because they see their closest friends getting divorced. I hate the way Hollywood likes to make us think that no long term marriage could possibly still be happy and fulfilling. True, raising a family and nurturing a career and paying bills and time do take their toll...but mature couples embrace those things. They don't shake their heads with regret over the wild and crazy times they may have missed.
Anyway, I clearly digress. One day, Carrell decides to shake things up just a bit, and invites his wife to go "into the city" to try out a hot new restaurant they've heard of. Naturally, when they arrive, with no reservations, they are treated with withering disdain by the staff...but Carrell hangs in there, and when the name "Tripplehorn" is repeatedly called by the hostess to no avail, Carrell declares that he and his wife are the Tripplehorns and they are seated and begin to enjoy a lovely evening together. Then they are approached by a couple of thuggish men, who escort them to the alley and begin to rough them up.Read more ›
Fey and Carrell carry this through beautifully as naifs trying to claw their way out of the situation. Of course, it escalates as it goes along, with a few spectacularly funny moments along the way. They save the best for last, though, in a final faceoff with the bad guys. You'll have to see it for yourself, but don't mess with mom when her temper finally snaps.
It's commodity entertainment with some amusing moments. Some days, that's enough.

Two of my favorite actors in a hilarious movie. Especially for "married w children" types who struggle for those date nights and can relate to working as a team!Published 18 hours ago by Cookingma

As soon as the 'bad guys' show up, the film goes off the rails into pure stupidity. Comedy needs to be intelligent in order to be truly funny otherwise its just dumbing the... Read morePublished 11 days ago by Paul Keeper
