DATE Night felt a lot like the brilliant early 90s James Cameron comedy thriller True Lies but with the added annoyance of trying very hard to be funny.
We follow Tina Fey and Steve Carrell as they become accidently embroiled with a killer mafia.
Predictably the two leads are as likeable as you'd expect.
But sadly, unlike True Lies, this had all the depth of a nursery rhyme and any serious moments were replaced with comedy predictability.

The cameos are written as minor comedy roles that didn't compliment the talents of the actors.
Two of my favourite actors made appearances - Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) as a gangster and William Fichtner (Prison Break) as a cop and both were wasted in these roles.

Oddly, Steve Carrell already made this move a couple of years ago. It was called Get Smart and Date Night is basically that but with less gadgets.
Obviously there are funny moments but the bits that tried to be funny ended up just a little embarrassing.
But this is a comedy that Carrell and Fey fans will watch once, enjoy and have no real yearning to see again.
