This dumb and mostly fun fish-out-of-water comedy would be more dumb and much less fun if it wasn’t for some amusing casting and a punchy running time that acknowledges the limits of its script. Tina Fey and Steve Carell are Claire and Phil Foster, a married New Jersey couple with a damp sex life and a damper social diary who decide that a ‘date night’ away from the kids is well overdue. But when Phil, in a moment of unusual boldness, steals the reservation of the mysterious ‘Triplehorns’ in a trendy Manhattan restaurant, they find themselves the unlikely target of gangsters headed by a self-mocking Ray Liotta. The script is lowest-common-denominator stuff – mistaken identity, car chases, strip clubs, boat rides – but the rapport between Carell and Fey is easy to warm to and an episode involving a shirtless Mark Wahlberg as an old friend of Claire’s who challenges Phil’s uneasy masculinity provokes genuine laughs. Fey and Carell are better than this, but when the other options in the action-romcom territory include such efforts as ‘The Bounty Hunter’, who’s complaining?

Loved the film - tina and steve's characters were always endearing and, often, hilarious. It irritates me when critics purport to speak for anyone other than themselves. Every review by a pro critic should be qualified to say that their opinion counts no more than your next door neighbours, yet they seem to think they have superior taste. I could watch this film over and over gain, not because it demands intellectually, but because it makes me laugh and smile each time.

Forgot to rate it again so I'll give a four to even it out but it's actually more like three.
