Tina Fey and Steve Carell in 'Date Night'Picture this scenario: It's Wednesday afternoon, Anytown, U.S.A. Picture a younger man -- maybe a little shy, maybe a little nerdy, maybe his favorite movie of all time happens to be 'The Empire Strikes Back' (Editor's note: There is nothing wrong with a person's favorite movie being 'Empire.' Right? Right!?). Now let's say this young man, finally, musters up enough courage to ask the object of his affection out on the town. She accepts; "but what shall we do?" she asks. Now, our shy young man checks the movies opening this weekend in his local newspaper (no, this story is not set in the 1950s, just go along with it). "Eureka!" he says, "There a film called 'Date Night' starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey, what a perfect film for a first date!" For his situation, our protagonist is sadly mistaken. It's comparable to seeing Adam Sandler's 'Funny People' and expecting to see people being funny; or 'Attack of the Clones' and hoping to see at least one clone attack, well, something (they didn't). 'Date Night,' despite its title, is certainly not an ideal film for a first date... watch the trailer below, and after the jump, we explain why:
