DATE NIGHT

v

Date Night, starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey, two of TV's funniest people.

They play Phil and Claire Foster, a married couple having dinner and are mistaken for a pair of blackmailers.

They were only out trying to recapture some of the spark in their stale relationship.

I liked just about everything, but it gets a little too serious and corny at times, and a scene about pole dancing could just as well .

Overall, it had a little for everyone and enough for me to go.been left out

Date Night has a remarkable plot device (borrowed from North by Northwest) , a couple of very funny people (on loan from TV, and a director with a successful but questionable track record.

Put them all together, and you get a slightly funny comedy with a formula script heading toward an obvious conclusion.

There are giggles galore thanks to the chemistry between its stars, but ultimately it's humorous without being hilarious.

The movie Date Night is a conservative comedy with mainstream values.

But as great as the two lead stars might be, they are unable to turn around the direction of unnecessary material and forgettable action/comedies.

No one is going to remember this film in a month, or maybe in some cases the day after seeing it (in my view).

I was disappointed in this foolish and reckless adventure escapade.
