    Stay for the outtakes – they’re improv delights, suggesting the movie that might have been if they had just left it all to Carell and Fey. show more

    Best of all, the filmmakers know when to pull the plug. Date Night clocks in at 88 minutes and would not have been as funny at 89. show more

    This is the rare screwball comedy that is superbly paced, cleverly plotted and hilarious from start to finish. show more

    Watching these two intensely likable comedians work together is a special pleasure. show more

    In addition to Carell and Fey, Date Night boasts a deft supporting cast...Best of all are a very droll James Franco and Mila Kunis as the downtown hipsters for whom the Fosters are mistaken. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    The trouble is, too much of director Shawn Levy's '80s-ish lark is filled with noise, when it really needed more quietly silly stuff. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    These talented performers star in two of the wittiest, most sophisticated sitcoms on the air, but for this movie pairing they're stuck with an endlessly silly plot line and overblown physical mayhem that is instantly forgettable. The fact that they make it so funny nonetheless is a testament to their abilities. show more

    Date Night isn't great; it's not really going for "great." But it's a well-executed comedy with a warm but not cloying center. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    All the time Phil and Claire seem like the kind of people who don't belong in a screwball comedy. That's why it's funny. They're bewildered. show more

    Regardless of the silliness of the situation -- or, in truth, because of it -- they're a joy to watch. show more

    Tina Fey needs to pick better movies and steve will just keep doing bad movies because he is a big nose idiot.

    Wast of money. This was a grossly predictable film that had I not promised my wife I'd watch the hole thing, I'd have left the room after 20 minutes. Not worth the rental fee or the gas to get to the store. Women will probably think this is cute. Guys would be better off watching a re-run of a game they already know the outcome of. Thank God this week it's my pick.

    I thought this was a hilarious laugh out loud movie. Steve Carell and Tina Fey did a great job. I loved the whole plot and the humor. It was not boring and slow moving at all.

    We were excited to see how funny this movie was in the beginning. In fact, some hysterically funny scenes. Then out came the potty humor(actually humorless) and the sex innuendos and the strip club. Some disgusting dialogue here. Ruined it for us. Let the viewer beware.

    Loved it! It is definitely a must see if you are a married couple, needing a "date night."
