The Tina Fey/Steve Carell vehicle Date Night opens this weekend and, after watching the trailer, I have but one thought: Who steals someone else’s reservation?
Really. That’s it. It looks like a funny movie, and I can’t hate it. But I can hate people who steal someone’s reservation, because that shit’s just not cool, you know?
I mean, they deserve what they get, with the thugs and the gun-tilting and Marky-Mark. Reservation stealers!
I guess I should clarify that this is a reservation for a table at a fancy restaurant, and not like, “The Rez,” because if it was a movie about people stealing a reservation reservation, that would be a totally different thing.
But they’re still jerks.
I mean, boo hoo! It’s your night out and you’ve got to make it special! Boo hoo! Your wife wears a mouthguard, so sexy fun times are hard. Hey. You know what? New York City has literally tons of restaurants. Seriously. Weigh them. Tons. You can’t get into the fancy restaurant, go to a different restaurant. It can be a special night if you have Thai noodles!
So, enjoy your case of mistaken identity, Tina Fey and Steve Carell. It’s no more’n what you deserve.
