The name of the strip joint where the Fosters go to meet the DA (The Peppermint Hippo) is a based on a famous chain of gentlemen's clubs called The Spearmint Rhino. See more »
The Fosters 'borrow' Holbrooke Grant's Audi and drive to 135 Avenue D (the real Tripplehorn apartment). In the ensuing driving/chase scene, mere blocks after the chase begins they pass a very conspicuous awning reading "226 West 9th Street." Moments later, they drive on a Manhattan Avenue, passing a street sign for "Spring Street." Such a driven journey would be impossible in the elapsed movie-time. See more »
Tina Fey + Steve Carell = A funny and surprisingly heartwarming film. Their on-screen chemistry is very good. They play the role as parents pretty well.
"Date Night" is a movie about a couple, named the Fosters, who are running in the biggest rut of their life. They want to spark it up, and decide that one night they will change up the routine.
What follows is a nice mix of comedy and inner conflict. The moments of heart-to-heart talk seriously reminded me of a John Hughes-like-film. Both Tina Fey and Steve Carell showed another aspect to their acting. Date Night has many of the traits I enjoy in a comedy with a good balance of laughs and sentimental value.
The diner scene at the end could pull some of the biggest tears out of the most emotionless scum on the earth. It was adorable and I could feel the relationship the Fosters were experiencing. Kudos, to the writers for masterfully writing some emotional dialog.
Overall, Date Night is a very enjoyable film.
