Plot

Phil and Claire Foster (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) are a married couple from New Jersey with two children whose domestic life has become boring and routine. Phil is a tax lawyer while Claire is a realtor. They are motivated to reignite their romance after learning that their best friends, Brad (Mark Ruffalo) and Haley (Kristen Wiig), are planning to divorce to escape the married-life routine and to have more excitement in their lives.

To avoid the routine that had become their weekly "date night", Phil decides that he will take Claire to a trendy Manhattan restaurant, but they cannot get a table. Phil takes a reservation from a no-show couple, the Tripplehorns, despite Claire's misgivings. While eating they are approached by two men named Collins (Common) and Armstrong (Jimmi Simpson), who question them about a flash drive they believe Phil and Claire stole from mobster boss Joe Miletto (Ray Liotta). Phil and Claire explain that they are not the Tripplehorns, but the men threaten them at gunpoint. Not seeing any other way out, Phil tells them it is in a boathouse in Central Park.

At the boathouse Claire pretends to search; while Collins and Armstrong's backs are turned, Phil hits them with a paddle and escapes with Claire on a boat. At a police station, Phil and Claire talk with Detective Arroyo (Taraji P. Henson) but discover Collins and Armstrong are also detectives, presumably on Miletto's payroll. Realizing they cannot trust the police, they decide to find the real Tripplehorns. They return to the restaurant and find their phone number.

Claire remembers a former client, Holbrooke Grant (Mark Wahlberg), is a security expert and James Bond-like action hero. At his apartment, Grant, whom Claire flirts with, traces the signal to an apartment owned by Tom Felton. Collins and Armstrong arrive, but Phil and Claire escape in Grant's Audi R8.

They arrive at Felton's apartment and break in. They question Felton, nicknamed "Taste" (James Franco), and his wife "Whippit" (Mila Kunis) about the flash drive and Joe Miletto. It turns out that they went to the restaurant but left when they spotted Collins. Realizing they are in danger, the couple gives the flash drive to Phil and flees. When Phil and Claire get back in the Audi, Armstrong and Collins shoot at them. Phil and Claire crash the Audi headon into a Ford Crown Victoria taxicab, resulting in their Audi and the Ford being attached at the bumpers. Phil and the cab driver (J. B. Smoove) decide to drive off to get away. Phil climbs into the Ford to navigate while Claire navigates the Audi. Phil checks the flash drive on the driver's Amazon Kindle and finds pictures of district attorney Frank Crenshaw (William Fichtner) with prostitutes (early in the film, a press conference shows Crenshaw highlighting his integrity platform). After evading Collins and Armstrong, they are eventually hit and separated by an SUV. The Ford falls into the river; Phil and the driver escape, but without the flash drive.

In a subway, Claire determines that Felton obtained the flash drive to blackmail Crenshaw. They return to Grant's apartment, and Grant is reluctant to help after becoming exhausted by their incompetence, but Phil begs and he agrees. Phil and Claire go to an illegal strip club that Crenshaw frequents, with Claire under the guise of a new prostitute and Phil as her pimp. After doing a pole dance for Crenshaw, they confront him and tell him they are the Tripplehorns. Collins and Armstrong come in and hold them at gunpoint and take them up to the roof with Crenshaw. Miletto arrives with henchmen and it is revealed that Crenshaw has been paid by Miletto to keep him out of jail. When Phil mentions the photos, a feud escalates between the mobsters and Crenshaw, Collins and Armstrong. Phil asks Claire to count to three (her typical method of calming their children). When she does, a helicopter appears and Arroyo and the SWAT team come onto the roof to arrest Miletto, Crenshaw and everyone else. It is revealed that Phil was wearing a wire courtesy of Grant, who informed Arroyo of the situation.

After being declared heroes, Phil and Claire enjoy breakfast at a diner, where Phil admits he would marry Claire and have their kids all over again if given the chance. When they return home, they kiss passionately on the front lawn.

Reception

Critical response

The film has received generally positive reviews. Review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes reports that 68% of critics have given the film a positive review, based on 188 reviews, with an average score of 6.2/10.[10] Another review aggregator, Metacritic, assigned the film a weighted average score of 56 out of 100 based on 37 reviews from mainstream critics.[11] Roger Ebert gave the film three and a half stars and two thumbs up saying "If you don't start out liking the Fosters and hoping they have a really nice date night, not much else is going to work."[12] Jim Vejvoda of IGN gave the movie 3 out of 5 stars saying "Date Night suggests a lot of comedic possibilities (Wahlberg's character being just one of them, and the Fosters' escape from the police station being another example) but it never quite capitalizes on all of these set-ups. Despite these shortcomings, the film still manages to be a lot of fun".[13]

"Date Night" is an episode from Season 1 of the dramedy television series Entourage.

Plot


Eric gets a wake up call from Ari informing him that it's opening day for Head On, and that he will call Eric back with the mid-day numbers. After hanging up on Ari, Emily calls to tell him to open the gate. He quickly cleans himself up, then rushes out to meet her. After chatting about the opening and discovering that the group has no plans for the evening, Emily asks Eric out on a date.

Eric brings in the fanmail that Emily brought over, and Vince and Turtle start going through it while telling Eric that Drama has a girl over. One of the letters they open is a nude picture of a fan who thinks that she and Vince were together in a previous life. Drama finally comes down with his new girl who is a body builder, and introduces her to the gang. When Drama escorts her out, the guys sneak behind and follow them to the door. After she leaves they give him a good ribbing.

After Drama refuses to cook, the guys head to a diner and discuss what they want to do for Vince's opening. When Eric tells them he's made plans, Vince gets upset. Rather than making him cancel his plans, though, Vince decides they should all get dates and hang out. Later Vince makes an appearance on Big Boy's radio show. Vince teases Eric on air about getting asked out by a girl. Then he tells Big Boy that he doesn't have a date yet. Big Boy then tells him he'll help Vince out, and Justine Chapin calls in and asks Vince out.

After the radio show, Turtle runs into trouble finding a date, and decides to call the nude girl from the fan mail Vince received. Now it's time to get ready for the night, and Drama cuts himself shaving his crotch. Eric chats with Ari via an iSight camera system, and Ari tells him that the matinée numbers were less than stellar since all the moms who want Vince are taking their kids to see Pixar's animated squirrel movie instead. After hanging up with Ari, Kirstin calls Eric to ask who he's going out with that night, and proceeds to play with his mind a bit. After that, Turtle tells them they are going bowling for the night.

At the bowling alley, Turtle's date shows her thong, and Eric figures out who she is and verbally assails Turtle for bringing her into their midst. While they eat, she spars with Justine over Vince, and Turtle starts to realise his mistake. After leaving the bowling alley, they drive by a theater and see a huge crowd waiting in line. Drama leans out, and asks what they're waiting to see, and the response is "that talking squirrel thing". Not liking this, Turtle leans out and spoils the movie, and tells them to go see Head On instead.

Ari tries to meet up with the guys at Pray, and Mrs. Ari demands the keys. Eric can't get back in touch with Ari, and Turtle's girl leaves. Drama gets in a tiff with his girl, and Justine leaves Vince and tells him what he missed out on. Ari then shows up and lets them know that Head On is the number 1 live action film of the weekend, opening at 18.6 million dollars. Emily then tells E she can't stay with Ari there, and he walks her out to the limo, where they share their first kiss. The episode ends with Vince sharing a toast to the movie's success with his best friends and Ari.
