Kill Shots and Potato Skins
Greetings again from the darkness. Most married couples can probably relate to the grind of a life absorbed with work and parenting. Sometimes the fantasy turns into having a quiet moment of solitude. Heck, even “date night” can devolve into just another responsibility tacked on at the end of a long week. This is the premise for director Shawn Levy’s film. The best part? It doesn’t matter at all.
The reason this film works is not the plot or script, but rather the talents of the two funniest people in showbiz today: Steve Carell and Tina Fey. The two seem to have an exceptional comedic connection that brings out a timing that reminds of the best comedy teams of all time.
Sometimes what makes for the funniest comedy is putting “normal” people into exceptional situations and let them react. Here, Carell and Fey are just a typical suburban couple trying to re-ignite the luster of an all too comfortable marriage. The motivation comes when their friends (Mark Ruffalo and Kristen Wiig) announce they are splitting. This starts Carell and Fey off on a series of skits that would make Seinfeld proud.
The nightmare begins when the couple “steals” a reservation in a hot new restaurant and assume the identity of, what turns out to be a couple of low level thieves. The multitude of skits that follow include supporting work from dirty cops (Common and Jimmi Simpson), the real reservation holders (funny James Franco and Mila Kunis), a mob boss (Ray Liotta), a corrupt city official (William Fichtner) and a “security expert” in the eternally shirtless Mark Wahlberg.
The approach of the film reminds me of “After Hours”, “Adventures in Babysitting” and “The Out of Towners”. Some of the best comedy occurs when the main players aren’t tossing out incessant one-liners. Think back to Cary Grant’s screwball comedies. He was not a bumbling idiot or a stand-up comedian walking through life. His characters were reactionary to the odd-ball situations in which he was placed. That is the approach of Carell and Fey, and I hope they pursue future projects together.
Should have been better!
‘Date Night’ is a bit of a disappointment, not so much because of the two stars, who try hard, and make the most of a pretty awful script! There are a couple of quite funny scenes, but sadly not enough to hold your attention for the entire 90 minutes. Slow to get going, the pace does pick up a little in the second half! A couple of UN necessary vomiting scenes could have been left out, never funny in my book. The camera work is excellent, and the film looks good visually, I’m more familiar with Steve Carrel’s work than Tina Fey’s, and they certainly both have the talent, but as with all performers, it all comes down to the script, and for me, this one just doesn’t cut it, it’s one of those films you want to work, but sadly, just misses the mark!
