DATE NIGHT (2010) TEN, 8.30PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Two of the small screen’s sharpest comedic tal­ents, Steve Carell ( The­Of­fice) and Tina Fey ( 30Rock), team up for this funny if overly fa­mil­iar ca­per com­edy from di­rec­tor Shawn Levy ( Night at the Mu­seum). They play Phil and Claire Foster, a long-term cou­ple who try to reignite their mar­i­tal spark with a night out on the town. Af­ter swip­ing a din­ner reser­va­tion at a pricey restau­rant, the Fos­ters are mis­taken for blackmailers who stole a USB stick con­tain­ing in­crim­i­nat­ing in­for­ma­tion about a crooked mob­ster (Ray Liotta) and are soon on the run from two re­lent­less thugs (hip-hop artist Com­mon and Jimmi Simpson). A mind­less romp made all the more ap­peal­ing by two like­able and gifted leads. ★★★

Close call: Claire (Tina Fey) and Phil Foster (Steve Carell) are on the run in DateNight.
