DATE NIGHT – REVIEW

(No Major Spoilers)

Date Night is a movie about a middle-aged couple, played by Steve Carell and Tina Fey, who lead a regular routine life. There’s little excitement or adventure in their monotonous married life. Fearing that this insipidness could eventually lead to a failed marriage, the couple attempts to spice up their life by doing something different. This unfortunately lands them in trouble and a series of seemingly hilarious events follow.

I’ll get straight to the point. There’s nothing interesting about the overall plot. I managed to get through the movie only because of the lead cast. Steve Carell and Tina Fey are simply amazing and genuinely funny. They make this movie pretty watchable, as they provide several good laughs and chuckles. But overall, the movie isn’t very good. In fact there are a couple of events in the movie that one might find plain stupid. However, if you’re a fan of Carell, you’ll definitely find it enjoyable (provided you don’t try to make too much sense out of the movie).

Bottom line:

Date Night is a silly yet enjoyable no-brainer. If you’re a fan of Steve Carell and/or Tina Fey, go for it!

My Rating:

2.7/5

  1. Wow. Well I disagree with you. I thought that the choice of cast was great for two reasons: 1) They can ad lib their way to dialogue greatness and 2) Their characters were perfect for their point in the film’s overall point of view. I think what you might have missed was that the movie was almost for the audience to see how normal people react to getting thrown into an over the top movie-style spy situation. It was meant to poke fun at the genre without becoming a “Not Another”type parody film.

    1. Hi!

      I didn’t think this movie was bad. But I felt that it wasn’t great either. I had no problem with the cast at all. In fact, that’s the only aspect about this movie which I loved. I thought Carell and Fey were both amazing and hilarious together. And I’ve mentioned that in my review.They were indeed perfect in their roles. But the story..well, I understand what you mean, but it’s just that it didn’t really appeal to me.

      Thanks for the comment!
