Date Night Synopsis


Phil (Carell) and Claire Foster (Fey) are a sensible, loving couple with two kids and a house in suburban New Jersey. The Fosters have their weekly "date night" - an attempt at re-experiencing the spice of the dates of yesteryear, involving the same weekly night out at the local Teaneck Tavern. Their conversations quickly drift from barely-date talk to the same chore-chat they have at the dinner table at home. Exhausted from their jobs and kids, their dates rarely end in fore- or any other kind of play, let alone romance.

After seeing two of their best friends - another married couple with kids in suburban New Jersey - split apart from living the same life they themselves lead, Phil and Claire begin to fear what may lie ahead: a state of bland indifference and eventual separation.

In an attempt to take date night off auto-pilot, and hopefully inject a little spice into their lives, Phil decides a change of plans is in order: take Claire into Manhattan to the city's hottest new restaurant. The Fosters, however, don't have reservations. Hoping to be seated sometime before the clock strikes twelve, they steal a no-show couple's reservations. What could it hurt? Phil and Claire are now the Tripplehorns.

The real Tripplehorns, however, it turns out, are a thieving couple who are being hunted down by a pair of corrupt cops for having stolen property from some very dangerous people. Forced on the run before they've even finished their risotto, Phil and Claire soon realize that their play-date-for-parents has gone hilariously awry, as they embark on a wild and dangerous series of crazy adventures to save their lives. . . and their marriage.

Weekend Box Office - No Cheap Date For Fey And Carell Weekend Box Office - No Cheap Date For Fey And Carell

Tina Fey and Steve Carell made a splash onto the big screen together for the first time this weekend, taking Date Night to a moderate first place opening. Having the two major comedic personalities in a single film might suggest the chance to double the success, but that wasn't the case at the box office.

Movies like Clash of the Titans are hard to get a handle on from trailers because the effects tend to dominate in the teaser's couple minutes of screen time. It's difficult to know how those effects will translate

Making this new photo from Shawn Levy’s Date Night even more lackluster is that the trailer doesn’t live up to expectations. It has some decent jokes, but the whole run-away-from-the-bad-guys thing is a little too silly

Not that it won't be worth watching-- anything that brings together Steve Carell and Tina Fey is an automatic win, and the trailer looks pretty funny in its own way. But I was expecting more of a madcap adventure

Given the legions of diehard fans of both The Office and 30 Rock, I imagine there are plenty of people who would dedicate themselves to keeping Steve Carell and Tina Fey out of harm's way. But something gets to them anyway, apparently, in Date Night

Unfortunately, the new set photos of Date Night don't tell us much about the plot-- the pair is just dressed nicely, standing on a New York street, and looking like they're in a hurry. But do you really need a particular reason to look at pictures of Tina Fey and Steve Carell together?

OK, so Olivia Munn isn't exactly Ashton Kutcher, single-handedly making Twitter the new replacement for the paparazzi. But she is a celebrity of a little note, and she's also using a Twitter account to announce her next project
