Date Night: Date Fright

Stick around to watch the outtakes that accompany the closing credits to see how hysterical this movie could have been.
If only.
If only Tina Fey and Steve Carrell were allowed to be their wackaloon selves.
But oh, no.
They're a boring New Jersey couple out in Manhattan to juice up their boring marriage. Why does boring have to be so, well, boring?
Their big mistake was taking another couple's restaurant reservation (Isn't that a felony in NYC?) leading to a case of mistaken identity that was followed by firearms, car chases and meetings with a shirtless Mark Wahlberg.
There were some amusing moments in "Date Night," but oh what it could have been.
