Do you and your husband/wife/partner/family pet have a regular "date night"? If so, go see this movie!!
I loved it!
Sure there are some corny parts and there's some "overacting" on the part of Ray Liotta and his nemesis (which stands out even more next to the down-to-earth and hilarious performances of Tina Fey and Steve Carell), but I really related to the realistic portrayal of a couple just trying to connect when life makes it hard. (The first restaurant scene where they make up stories about other couples is priceless...) Scott and I both LAUGHED OUT LOUD throughout the whole thing!!
It was really solid - even when things go out of control for the Fosters, you "buy" it. Carell and Fey ask ALL the questions YOU would ask if something ridiculously impossible happened to you. I can only imagine we have Carell and Fey to thank for making this work because when every other comedy of this kind goes over-the-top and we find ourselves asking questions like "Why the HELL would they just LEAVE with those people!?" the response makes you say, "Okay...I get it."
I loved it. Hope you do to. A well-written, laugh out loud comedy is hard to come by.
Oh, and make sure you stay for the post credit bloopers! Very funny.
