Goofs

After Carell's character lands in the water, after the Audi/Taxi chase under FDR highway, we see the South Street Seaport lights in the background, far to the south. The distance of those lights -- along with the design of the river walk barriers -- indicate he probably was swimming near the Brooklyn Bridge or Manhattan Bridge. In the following scene, however, he and Fey's characters are shown on the #1 subway train, which can only be caught FAR AWAY from this location. If they'd first taken a different train in order to transfer to the #1, they must have done so in total silence. See more »

Funny and Entertaining
22 August 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The suburban tax lawyer Phil Foster (Steve Carell) and the real estate agent Claire Foster (Tina Fey) have a boring married life in New Jersey. In their routine, they have once a week the "date night", when they hire a baby-sitter for their children and they have dinner in the same restaurant. When their best friends decide to divorce because of their routine, Phil decides to surprise Claire and have dinner in the fancy restaurant Claw in Manhattan. However, they do not have reservation and is almost impossible to get a table; when Phil overhears the waitress calling Mr. and Mrs. Tripplehorn, he lies and gets their table. Sooner two men invite them to leave the restaurant with them and they believe the invitation is because they took the reservation of a couple that has not shown up. But they discover that the couple stole a flash memory from the powerful gangster Joe Miletto (Ray Liotta) and now they have a serious problem to resolve.

"Date Night" is a funny and entertaining film with a non-original storyline about a mistaken couple that works. Steve Carell and the beautiful Tina Fey are hilarious in the roles of the suburban couple that has a night of adventure for taking the reservation of another couple in a popular restaurant. I believe most of the couples married for a long time will easily understand the situation of Phil and Claire. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Uma Noite Fora de Série" ("An Outstanding Night")
