Monday Movie Review

Netflix is my best friend. I've had movie nights at least 3 times a week because of the ease of having a movie mailed to me!
Makes it a lot easier by far!

This week I watched...

This action comedy tells the tale of mild-mannered married couple Phil (Steve Carell) and Claire (Tina Fey), who fear their relationship may be falling into a stale rut. During their weekly date night, they impetuously steal a dinner reservation, which leads to a case of mistaken identity. Turns out the reservation was for a pair of thieves, and now a number of unsavory characters want Phil and Claire killed. If they can survive a wacky life-threatening night, they may just rediscover the passion missing from their marriage. Directed by Shawn Levy, the film co-stars Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, and Kristen Wiig.

I am a HUGE Steve Carell fan. I've liked every one of his movies. Evan Almighty, Horton Hears a Who, Dan in Real Life, 40 Year Old Virgin, Despicable Me. He's a funny guy!
I'm also a Tina Fey fan as well. I absolutely loved her on SNL (Saturday Night Live) and Baby Mama. She's such a funny lady!

So it was much to my disappointment that I found neither one of these people funny in this movie. I might have cracked a giggle here and there, but it had to do with someone other than them in the movie.
I just couldn't get into it!
I was really disappointed.
Maybe it was the plot of the movie, maybe it was because they just weren't funny at all.
I rate this movie a D-.

Have you seen Date Night?
Did you like it?
If so, what did you like about the movie?
If you didn't, what made you not like it?

In all honesty it doesnt surprise me that you didnt care for this movie. It's been an On Demand option for a while now but I've had absolutely no desire to see it, even though I'm a huge Steve Carell fan. The commercials for it didnt make it look funny and sometimes two funny people dont always make a funny movie (ex:Blades of Glory) haha.
