The names of the couple played by Steve Carell and Tina Fey are Phil and Claire. This is the same name as the couple from the sitcom Modern Family (2009). In the show, the characters are played by Ty Burrel and Julie Bowen. See more »
In the chase scene, the black police car, driven by the bad cops chasing the Fosters, is shown with blue and red lights on the front. This is a mistake, as it is illegal for police in the state of New York to have forward-facing blue lights. 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.
