.....movie was fine until strip club and perverse politician. I will say go instead of average for Steve Carrell. The man knows comic timing and always is entertaining. Not rolling in the aisles funny,just enjoyable. Please look for carNtires review. It says it all,regarding the stupidity and dumming down of decent material to appease those who always need smutty material to call something good. I wish there was just plain more class in America.

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. Yes,they did make it comedic for the main stars,but other unneeded dancers,and the politician being so ...yuck..just really bugged me. Same thing could have been accomplished another way-perhaps the pol having 'escorts brought to a hotel room or something.Or a drug problem or bribery. Something without ****. Good Comedy though.I saw it twice!

An otherwise clichéed storyline is transformed by Tina Fey and Steve Carrel into a "Must see" movie. Their comic timing is superb and the chemistry between them coupled with their improvisation skills and experience enables them to work well off each other's performance.
It was way better than "Mr & Mrs Smith" with more laughs and better acting.

The Fosters, played by Steve Carrell and Tina Fey (both great comedians in their own right), are your typical family couple, they have two young children and they work hard to provide a great life for them. Steve Carrell plays an accountant and Tina Fey plays a real estate agent. Like many couples, they have a "date night" where they typically go to a family restaurant and usually order the same meal. The couple finds out that two of their best friends, also a married couple, are splitting up because they feel they have just turned out to be "really great roommates." Afraid of turning into the couple that is splitting up, Fey and Carrell try to spice things up by going to a snooty seafood restaurant in Manhattan. Of course there's no reservations available, so Carrell has the idea of taking some other couple's reservation. That one small act turns into a zany adventure with crooked cops, exotic dancers, & car chases. Go for laughs and action and root for this unbeatable comedic duo.
