In Date Night, the best parts are when Steve Carell and Tina Fey are just interacting with one another and not dealing with the mistaken identity plot of the movie. Letters to God is a movie that came out with no promotion and wasn’t screened for critics. After seeing the trailer, I can see why. The Square and The Misfortunates look pretty entertaining in the limited releases. Finally, the cheese factor of The Black Water of Echo’s Pond could make for a good movie to watch while drunk so you can just laugh at it.
Synopsis: A married couple tries to spice up their love life with an actual date night, but when they get mistaken for a couple that owes money to some guy, things get all crazy.
My Take: It doesn’t look laugh out loud funny like I’ve come to expect from Steve Carell and Tina Fey, but looks mildly amusing enough for Netflix.
RT Score: 66%
RT 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.
