Phil (Steve Carell) and Claire Foster (Tina Fey) are afraid that their marriage is growing stale upon hearing that their friends are getting a divorce. When they're at a hip restaurant in the city, they steal the reservation of the Tripplehorns. It turns out that a couple of corrupt cops are looking for the Tripplehorns and now they think the Fosters are them.
This is way too serious. The situations are way too dangerous. It's hard to laugh at this at times. The movie's tone is all over the place. Sometimes, the leads get to play with a funny Mila Kunis and James Franco pairing. Then they have a outrageous shootout with the scary corrupt cops (Jimmi Simpson, Common). I love Carell and Fey. They are fun together. But they don't have much of a chance when things turn dangerous. At least they seem to have fun in the outtakes.
