Claire and Phil Foster are a suburban couple who feel that their lives, including their weekly date night, have become humdrum and routine. In an attempt to rekindle their spark, they plan a romantic evening at a hip Manhattan bistro. But when they arrive at the glamorous venue, they get a lot more excitement than they bargained for when a case of mistaken identity turns their intimate evening into a hair-raising walk on the wild side.
One night can change your life!
I’ve been meaning to watch this for a while now because Tina Fey stars in this movie and I am a fan of her work. I’m happy to say that after watching this movie, I wasn’t disappointed. The story was great, it’s very enjoyable and quite funny in places. The acting was very good and the chemistry between Fey and Carell was great to watch, they both made a good and believable couple and a funny comedy duo. The characters were okay, they were written well. The writing was very good with some funny moments and the script was written well and the stunts were executed well.
It’s not your typical romantic comedy where you cringe at the ‘funny’ scenes instead of laughing, Date Night is so much better than that. When you saw the funny scenes, you actually laughed at them. Tina Fey and Steve Carell did a great job as the Fosters and they shined through and through in the movie. Their chemistry was believable and they made a good movie couple. While the ending is the same predictable ending as all the other romantic comedy movies we ever see, I believe that Date Night achieved what it wanted to achieve, it had a fresh script with some funny one-liners, a quirky plot and great characters. I recommend it to people who can put aside the cheesy, cliché romance scenes and watch it as it actually is a funny movie. Of course it would be, Tina Fey and Steve Carell are in it.
A great comedy with some funny scenes and a great script. Tina Fey and Steve Carell did a fantastic job as the couple and I hope to see them work together in more movies in the future.
