Steve Carell, Tina Fey
Carell and Fey are a husband and wife team, Phil and Claire Foster, with two kids. They both work, are tired, and are beginning to think that their relationship might need a bit of spicing up, even if they can’t admit it to each other.
So they have a “date night” to really spice up all date nights. Claire and Phil wanted the night to be different and it was – they inadvertently become embroiled in an adventure involving thugs, guns, car chases, strip clubs, and dirty cops. They behave just as your everyday Joe would behave in their situation – they panic, they vomit, they cry, they nearly fall apart. But then they get it together and take control.
When they become a team they manage to beat the baddies. And it’s not only because they know each other so well, but because they really like each other.
This is such a cleverly put together movie. Carell and Fey are so effortlessly funny. It’s definitely a ‘laugh out loud’ flick and one you have to watch more than once. In fact, this is one of the best films I’ve seen, and one of my all time favourites.
