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