In the chase scene with the taxicab and Audi stuck together, you see Holbrooke's Audi smash into several cars. If you pay close attention, you can see that the left front tire and wheel is destroyed after impact. In the very next scene, the Audi is seen with all four wheels intact. The same thing occurs a bit earlier in the scene, with the right rear tire and wheel being destroyed. See more »
Date Night is a good movie with a pretty well developed storyline that was in all honesty a lot more promising than the movie ended up,but its still very funny and action packed at times.The movies cast is fantastic and there are a lot of fun cameos throughout,the ones that really stick out in my head are Mark Wahlberg,James Franco,Mila Kunis,J.B. Smoove and Will i Am.I really like both Steve Carell and Tina Fey and thought the idea of them working together seemed like comedy gold,it certainly wasn't but the two of them still made for a fun movie.All in all,I would recommend Date Night to anyone looking for a short and sweet comedy to watch.
Hoping for a romantic night out,a bored married couple mistakenly become targets for the mob after pretending to be a different couple to get a table at a popular restaurant.
