We went to see Date Night last night. It had been given really good reviews and it starred Steve Carrell, an actor I have always enjoyed. I could picture him and Tina Fey being well matched as a married couple and they were! There were some really sweet little parts between the two of them…but overall I am embarrassed for them that they agreed to be in a movie that respected itself so little.
This is a movie I could picture Rock Hudson and Doris Day doing and turning it into a classic. But I don’t believe A-list actors from that era would ever have agreed to be in a movie that made them say the words and act in the ways that this movie required.
The movie reminded me of the times in life when I have met a person who seemed pleasant and attractive…until they opened their mouth and filthy language spewed out.
It’s a bad sign when you think less of everyone associated with a movie after seeing it.
Tell me again … what does PG-13 mean? Because, in my opinion, this movie should definitely have been rated R, with an NC added for no class.
