Review of Date Night

During my first viewing of the film, I was going to tap out and turn it off but boy am I glad I didn't. Tina Fey and Steve Carell in a movie seems like a hilarious film on paper but instead they churn out a really decent comedy. I am not bashing the movie, I'm just saying it didn't reach the high standard that I set for them but that is because I was expecting Michael Scott and Liz Lemon (Carell and Fey's characters from The Office and 30 Rock respectively) to be on display. But once you accept their characters as an average married couple then you realize that they did it the best that they could. There are points in the film where you can tell that Fey and Carell got to do their own thing and those are really the high points, and it is enough to make you sit through the entire movie. Besides comedy this movie has action, drama,crime, and fast cars although those things make up the movie they are not the things that keep you into the movie. While the major storyline involves our couple getting entangled in an elaborate scheme it's the reaction to everything that fey and carell do well in. The re-watch value is moderate. As I said before you sit through most of the movie waiting for the laughs, they're worth the wait but once the laugh is over it's more waiting. I watched it again looking forward to the parts that I enjoyed and to see if perhaps that feeling of sitting through the film instead of enjoying it would change but it didn't. This movie did not leave me with a bad after taste because once it was done I knew I wanted to watch it again. But I was just thinking about the high points of the film and not the entire movie. I'm not rushing to recommend this film, It takes a certain type of viewer to watch it.
