Date Night

post signature
Steve Carell and Tina Fey play an ordinary suburban couple worried that their marriage may be sinking into middle-class predictability. In attempt to break the mold, they do something different on their regular date night, going into the big city for dinner. What begins as a small adventure turns into the ride of their lives, involving secrets, criminals, chases and some of the most powerful men in the city.

ClearPlay in Action!

Date Night received a PG-13 rating for “sexual and crude content throughout, language, some violence and a drug reference.” ClearPlay removes about 60 to 70 instances of crude language and profanity, and lewd references are toned down. An important scene takes place in a strip club, and while it still appears in the ClearPlayed version, it has been trimmed to lessen its offensiveness. Gunplay, peril, and a scene of girls in skimpy outfits may make the movie inappropriate for younger viewers.

Should I pencil in an appointment with Date Night?…

Though it’s a bit uneven, Date Night has a lot going for it, including the appeal of Carell, Fey, and funny appearances by Mark Wahlberg, James Franco and Mila Kunis. Carell’s and Fey’s day-to-day challenges should ring familiar to most families, and when the couple is plunged into the seedy side of the city, the consequences are often very funny.
