The partnership between two renowned comedians, Steve Carell and Tina Fey, could not be short of hilarious!
Under the direction of Shawn Levy ("Night At The Museum", "Cheaper By The Dozen"), the story revolves around a married couple, Phil ("The 40 Year Old Virgin" star Steve Carell) and Claire ("Saturday Night Live" comedian Tina Fey) Foster who are ensnared with their daily routines. One night, the pair decides to do something different for their dinner date by claiming themselves to be the Triplehorns in order to secure a seat at a popular restaurant. Due to that, it has made their mellow night turned dangerous and unforgettable as gangsters begin to hunt them down.
In terms of the actor's performance, Fey and Carell played their roles no differently to their previous TV hit sitcom "30 Rock" and "The Office", respectively. Their years of experience in comedy gave justice to their roles, coming off very natural and their comedic timing was executed with ease. Viewers are given the opportunity to see both actors in their 40's pole dance and perform odd robotic sex action in a nightclub. As peculiar as that sounds, the pairing between Tina Fey and Steve Carell has made "Date Night" a truly attractive and entertaining comedy. The film also stars Taraji P.Henson ("The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button"), Mark Wahlberg ("The Lovely Bones"), Jimmi Simpson ("Stay Alive"), James Fanco ("Spider-Man"), and Mila Kunis ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall").
"Date Night" is especially recommended for couples who feel that their marriage life has become routine as it expresses how important love and understanding is even after marriage.Cinema Online, 06 April 2010
