Consensus: An uneasy blend of action and comedy, Date Night doesn't quite live up to the talents of its two leads, but Steve Carell and Tina Fey still manage to shine through most of the movie's flaws.

Fey, in particular, seems uncomfortable with the shenanigans.

In three or four scenes, they get a rhythm going, but the editing is smash-and-bash. Shawn Levy is not a director who honors performers' rhythms.

... Date Night is the fun, lighthearted comedy that the two TV heroes needed to reclaim their box office status.

One can only fantasize about what a comedy starring Fey and Carrell would be like if the pair did the writing as well.

Fey, in particular, finds herself in the situation of a prima ballerina unaccountably dancing with the Rockettes.

Tom Long

Its slapstick story of a married couple enduring outrageous fortune offers a lot of laughs, a bit of romance and plenty for either sex to relate to.

As believable as the story is, it's strange that the filmmakers didn't do more with the talent they had on hand.

It got me some laughs so it was worth it. Plus, they're quite charismatic.

It's what happens when Steve Carell and Tina Fey remake Revolutionary Road.
