Date Night

Director: Shawn Levy
Year Released: 2010
Rating: 1.0

Bland but (mostly) content Jersey couple - Steve Carell and Tina Fey - arrange a 'date' in New York City just for one night, get mistaken for two blackmailers and are chased around Manhattan. A single episode of 30 Rock (starring the lovely Ms. Fey) is considerably more memorable - and funny - than this achingly safe, by-the-numbers rom-com; Carell and Fey work well together, but no one's going to mistake this for, say, After Hours. The Family Values message isn't hard to pick out: gotta keep the spice in that ol' marriage of yours ... though to quote my attorney, William Russell Thomas, "Spice is the spice of life."
