I got e-mails complaining. I understand. I usually do a Friday night movie post and I didn't. That's because I was pissed about the never ending attacks from these CODESTINK types on Hillary. Libbyliberal's an idiot and since she puts falsehoods in her 'reports' and never corrects them, I can't stand her.
Here's my Friday night post on Tuesday. (For last week. This isn't me getting a jump on this Friday.) "Date Night."
I don't like Tina Fey. So I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie. Mark Ruffalo had a bit part in it. I'd seen it and remembered his part but it was one of those nights where your family's got several movies and everyone wants to watch their movie and you end up nodding out? That was me with Date Night. I didn't realize I'd seen his entire performance. He really just has two scenes at the beginning of the film.
I do not like Steve Carell. But I did in this movie. He wasn't trying to overwhelm me with his Robin Williams like love-me-love-me. He was really funny.
Tina was as well. In places.
So Steve and Tina are married, they've got two young kids. Mark Ruffalo and his wife (their friends) are divorcing. That has them worrying. So they both try harder on their next "Date Night." They decide to leave Jersey and go dine in Manhattan. And they go to this one hot spot but they can't get a table and people there are rude to them. So when a hostess walks around calling for the Tripplehorns to tell them their table is ready and Steve notices no one is claiming the table, he yells out that they're the Tripplehorns.
The Tripplehorns are blackmailing a politician and have stolen a mobster's evidence to do so. So they've got both of those two against them and some crooked cops also.
So it was not a good idea to pose as the Tripplehorns.
I enjoyed the movie and Mark Wahlberg's really good in it. I wasn't impressed with James Franco but the woman from "That '70s Show" and "Black Swan" was funny. She was really funny. I laughed harder at her one scene than I did at anything else in the movie.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
