trailer break: ‘Date Night’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Oh. My. God. It’s like someone made a CGI action comedy about, I dunno, squirrels who think they’re secret agents, and then digitally removed the squirrels and replaced them with live actors. It’s like the opposite of motion capture to create a cartoon.

I would like to think that Tina Fey and Steve Carell together might be kinda funny — even though they’ve both made some shitty movies (Baby Mama, Evan Almighty) — but the fact that Shawn Levy directed this makes that impossible. His movies range from the not very good (Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian) to the horrific (The Pink Panther, Just Married).

Talent and the ability to make a reasonably not terrible movie are clearly optional in Hollywood.

Date Night opens in the U.S. and Canada on April 9, and in the U.K. on April 21.
