3 stars out of 5 -- "Carell and co keep mining shards of comic brilliance and, even more unlikely, some disarming glints of emotion."
Total Film - Jonathan Crocker (03/16/2010)
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A]n absurd and wildly amusing night to remember. This is the rare screwball comedy that is superbly paced, cleverly plotted and hilarious from start to finish."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (04/09/2010)
"[S]uperbly absurd....Steve Carell and Tina Fey, are exactly what they seem. They're perfect casting in a short, sweet comedy that makes the most of their genial gifts..."
Wall Street Journal (04/09/2010)
3 stars out of 4 -- "Steve Carell and Tina Fey play a nice, unassuming couple in DATE NIGHT, and that's one of the reasons the movie works so well."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (04/07/2010)
"DATE NIGHT occasionally stumbles onto moments of emotional honesty when the subterranean currents of resentment and boredom in Fey and Carell's marriage puncture the surface."
A.V. Club - Nathan Rabin (04/08/2010)
3 stars out of 4 -- "Regardless of the silliness of the situation -- or in truth, because of it -- they're a joy to watch."
Washington Post (04/09/2010)
"Ultimately, it's Carell and Fey, displaying an unmistakable chemistry together, who give the film its entertainment value..."
Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck (04/05/2010)
"Carell and Fey project an intellectual sharpness and an understanding of what's important in life -- and what's ridiculous....The leads provide their own excellent entertainment..." -- Grade: B
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (04/16/2010)
"Best of all is Mark Wahlberg in a nifty bit of self-satire as a shirtless weapons expert."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (04/29/2010)
"There are funny moments....DATE NIGHT remains a reasonably amiable comedy that stressed parents will relate to..."
Sight and Sound - Anna Smith (05/01/2010)
