Date Night

PhotobucketPhotobucketHilarious screwball comedy about a married couple accidentally thrust into a bizarre nighttime adventure in New York City. This mistaken identity action comedy works because actors Steve Carell and Tina Fey are so perfectly matched as the mild mannered married couple whose life has become routine.  They exhibit real chemistry and their constant exasperation with what is happening to them is at times, side-splitting.  The script’s amusing examination on the foibles of marriage is intelligent, although it does get a bit cloying near the end.  On the whole, this comedy is entertaining and fun throughout thanks to its two stars.  They’re matched by a talented supporting cast that, in their seriousness, allows our leads to be even funnier, particularly Mark Wahlberg who is memorable as a high-tech security specialist.

    I just watched this today too!!! Great review, I have nothing to add, other than “I totally agree”. This is my favorite type of comedy. Tina and Steve have amazing comic timing and as you said in your review “are perfectly matched”. I had a lot of fun and would probably watch it again while it’s still in theaters.
