New Clip from DATE NIGHT Featuring Tina Fey, Steve Carell, and a Mark Wahlberg Cameo

I was overjoyed when it was first announced that Steve Carell and Tina Fey would be joining forces for Date Night.  To see NBC’s comedy superstars bounce off each other at feature length sounds wonderful to me, even if said bouncing is directed by Shawn Levy of Night at the Museum/Pink Panther/Cheaper by the Dozen fame.  But the trailer was pretty underwhelming.  It’s peppered with some good lines, but seems overwhelmed by its action-comedy plot:  Fey and Carell play a married couple whose date night turns is plagued by gangsters and car chases after a case of mistaken identity.

But comic timing can be ruined by the rules of trailer editing.  Luckily, Yahoo! Movies has posted a three minute clip, an undoubtedly better representation of the film.  The clip features Mark Wahlberg, and the interplay between the three is exactly what I was hoping for upon the first announcement.  I don’t think I’ll ever get behind the plot, but hopefully I’ll never need to.  Check out the clip along with the official synopsis after the break.

Date Night hits theaters on April 9th.

For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis for Date Night:

Claire and Phil Foster (Tina Fey and Steve Carell) are a suburban couple slogging through their daily lives and marriage. Even their “date nights” of dinner and a movie have become routine. To reignite the marital spark, they visit a trendy Manhattan bistro, where a case of mistaken identity hurtles them through the city at breakneck speeds, into non-stop adventure. Remembering what made them so special together, Phil and Claire take on a couple of corrupt cops, a top-level mobster – and a crazed cabbie – as their date becomes a night they’ll never forget.
