A conceptually interesting, albeit predictable, film that is surprisingly unfunny, even though it has a dynamite starring duo, and tons of good cameos.
In Date Night, I was expecting more comedy than I got. Tina Fey is one of the funniest people on earth, and Steve Carell is hysterical in just about everything he's in. But together, these two could barely get a laugh from me. I honestly blame the writing. The plot is clever and should've been a factory for tons of inspired comedic sequences. But instead, we get a half-assed action-comedy that isn't very successful in either category. Fortunately there are tons of famous actors and actresses to be found in this film (listing them is pointless, there are too many) that keep this from falling in the truly bad category, ending up being merely mediocre.
