My Penny of View : A married couple-Phil and Claire from New Jersey who has a normal routine marriage life with two kids. Every weekend they will have date night at the same old restaurant and doing the same lame thing during the date. Their marriage became boring and no sparks of life. Their couple friends were underwent divorce and made both of them realize that they must do some changes in order they won't end up like them. On the ordinary date night, Claire dressed up and Phil decided go to a special seafood restaurant in Manhattan. The restaurant was so crowded, Phil decided to take the no-show couple-Tripplehorn's reservation. The dinner went great and suddenly two men approached them. They thought the intention of the men were just because they took people's reservation. So they followed the men to the back alley. Unexpectedly the two men questioned Phil and Claire on other thing about a flash drive which they claimed that they stole from their boss-Joe Miletto. Both of them were confuse and they tried to explain to them that they weren't the Tripplehorn and they just normal couple who stole other people's reservation. Somehow, the two men didn't believe and left Phil no choice but to bring them to Central Park with the excuse that the flash drive was hidden there. What will happen to Phil and Claire? Will they be safe and go back to their home?

The storyline was quite straightforward. A married couple who have reached the comfort zone without noticed and they started feel their marriage in critical status when they see their couple friends ended up with divorce. This story is so true and it is happening around us. That is why marriage needs effort and time to manage in order can live happily ever after. Besides romance, the couple went through a series adventurous Date Night. It was entertaining and full with laughter. The best part was the pole dancing, luckily it didn't censor in the cinema.

The lead actor and actress-Steve Carell and Tina Fey have well chemistry and everytime they will pursuit some dramatic moments before enter to another scene. Mark Wahlberg as a security expert-Holbrooke showed off his six pack abs that made Phil feel threaten because Claire being too nice to him. Phil kept telling Holbrooke to put on his shirt. Appearance of Will.I.Am also light up the movie. As conclusion, the movie was simple but filled up with great jokes plus the outstanding lead actor and actors which you can't miss it.

Rating :
★★★★☆
