Brief Synopsis: "The mild-mannered married couple Phil and Claire fear that their relationship may be falling into a stale rut.

Turns out the reservation was for a pair of thieves, and now a number of unsavory characters want Phil and Claire killed."

Dan O'Neill85 - Though its plot is familiar, Date Night blends a great deal of action with hilarious humor, that wouldn’t have been the same if it were not for Fey, Carell, and countless others in cameo roles.
