-IMDb (6.4/10 rating): “In New York City, a case of mistaken identity turns a bored married couple’s attempt at a glamorous and romantic evening into something more thrilling and dangerous.”
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I watched this movie, I remembered seeing the previews but for some reason I was assuming that it was a first date between Phil and Claire. The truth is that they are a married couple with two kids and their marriage just roles along on a schedule. They do plan a weekly date night but that consists of them going to the same resturant, ordering the same thing, and then heading back home. There is no more real romance between them even though they seem to try.
That all changes one night when they both get an idea to really try to spice things up on their date night. They both get dressed up and go into the city to have dinner. They get into a very fancy resturant and are enjoying a wonderful dinner when things take a turn for the worst when they are expected of being a couple who stole a very important item from the mob…basically. This puts them in a run for their life but they make it so comical.
You’ve got some awesome stars in the movie including James Franco, William Fitchner, Mila Kunis, and Ray Liotta (who did this movie uncredited!!) Steve and Tina do an amazing job keeping the movie funny and their chemistry is great! They really feed off of each other. I will for sure be watching this movie again in the near future…just don’t know if I’ll be adding it to my DVD collection yet or not.
This movie is funny, suspensful, and entertaining. This is a fun movie to watch when you need a good laugh or for a fun date movie with your significant other.
