The fingerprints of workaday director Shawn Levy are all over the new trailer for Date Night, opening April 9, 2010 from 20th Century Fox, and starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey. Written by Josh Klausner, with an uncredited production rewrite by Aline Brosh McKenna and Simon Kinberg, the movie is a domestic comedy turned action flick in which a married couple seek to escape beatings and bullets after impersonating another couple in order to snag a reservation at a tony restaurant. Everything on display here is by-the-numbers — did anyone actually clap with delight or feel the slightest twinge of surprise when presented with Carell on a car hood? — with angled reaction coverage that doesn’t quite match. And is it just me, or does all the dark alleyway slapstick stuff give a taste of The Out-of-Towners? No, not the original… the wince-inducing 1999 remake. James Franco‘s appearance made me smile more than anything other than the moment of mouth-guard truth that opens the trailer.
