Best of all, the filmmakers know when to pull the plug. Date Night clocks in at 88 minutes and would not have been as funny at 89.

Date Night isn't great; it's not really going for "great." But it's a well-executed comedy with a warm but not cloying center.

Stay for the outtakes – they’re improv delights, suggesting the movie that might have been if they had just left it all to Carell and Fey.

Would have said Must Go if they could have left the strip club out.

And I really want to! Date Night is witty funny,silly funny, and relatable. Carrell and Fey are such naturals in their art. I just hate that so many good movies have to have a strip club scene....

Not-So-Great Night
