Date Night is a movie that stars Steve Carrell and Tina Fey as a married couple: Phil and Claire Foster. They are a little over domesticated and a lot bored. They have relationship issues that many people probably encounter at some point, like not enough time to devote to their relationship. The characters are easy to relate to for most of middle America.
As a change of pace, they decide to go to a fancy restaurant and take someone else's reservation to get a table. Due to a case of mistaken identity, the Fosters find themselves mixed up in a blackmail scheme. People try to kill them. Phil and Claire have to solve the mystery before they get their butts shot off.
The movie was really funny. How could it not be with Steve Carrell and Tina Fey in the leads? There was also a lot of action with car chase scenes and running.
Stars are all over this movie, including: William Fitchner (Drowning Mona) as creepy district attorney, Kristen Wiig (SNL), James Franco, Mila Kunis, and most importantly - deliciously shirtless Mark Wahlberg.
I usually like a little more grit in my movies, but this one was alright. I give it an A with some extra credit for a half-naked Mark Wahlberg.
