Date Night - Notepad

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

You’ve loved Steve Carell and his voice-overs. And Tina Fey needs no introduction (Viewers of 30 Rock, rejoice!) Date Night fits the screwball comedy genre and is thankfully not just a series of gags, placed one after another. The punchlines are funny, as are the performances – a splendid one in a scene featuring Mark Wahlberg – and this isn’t surprising, coming from the director of comedies such as Just Married, Night at the Museum. Couples will love Date Night, especially considering it is a story about the dilemma of a suburban couple, as much as about the mess they get into. Not sure if you want to own it on DVD, but certainly rent it or borrow it.

Plot Summary

Date Night tells the story of a young married couple's crazy adventure one evening, when, desperate to have dinner at a fancy restaurant, they smartly occupy the table of another couple - the Tripplehorns - who fail to turn-up against their reservation.

Now mistaken as the Tripplehorns, Carell and Fey (the Fosters) are confronted by cops on the look-out for a flash drive. How the Fosters go about dodging them and eventually find a way to go back home, is what forms the rest of the film.
