Review: Date Night
Starring: Steve Carell, Tina Fey
Length: 88 min.
IMDB Summary: In New York City, a case of mistaken identity turns a bored married couple's attempt at a glamorous and romantic evening into something more thrilling and dangerous.
It's too bad this movie is bogged down by sexual innuendos, because the acting is hilarious and the plot is suspenseful and enjoyable. However, Date Night relies on crude jokes to elicit laughter, which detracts from the quality of the characters and storyline. If you're willing to put up with a pole dancing scene and numerous sexual references, then you might enjoy this movie. It has a fast-paced, suspenseful plot that keeps viewers hooked.
I'm surprised this movie was rated only PG-13. There are shots of strippers and a lengthy sequence of pole dancing. Also, lots of crude humor and some language.
