Review: Date Night

What makes this movie work is not the over the top chase scene or the stripper dance that lasts a little too long, it is the relationship between the two main characters. Phil and Claire Foster, played by Steve Carell and Tina Fey, are an ordinary married couple that are in need of some spice in their regular routine.

When their night out does not go as planned and things get a little crazy, this movie never loses sight of what's important. Phil and Claire are in a rut, but they obviously love each other and that is what makes the movie believable. The supporting cast makes the movie fun and keeps the jokes rolling in. Of course with Carell and Fey at the helm we would expect nothing less. B

Entertaining movie and it definitely made me laugh out loud. I agree the car chase and the stripper scence was too much! Good review!
