This movie is about the Fosters that are played by Steve Carrell (Phil Foster) and Tina Fey (Claire Foster). The Fosters are in a repeating, "same shit different day" kind of schedule. They have lost that fire in the relationship as most couples tend to do after a long time together. They see a close friends relationship fall apart causes Phil and Claire to take action to make their marriage hot again. They get all dressed up and head for Manhattan to eat at a new popular restaurant and end up in all kinds of bad news because of a bold move on Phil part with stealing a reservation. This results in random encounters including the 1st of many run-ins with some thugs played by recording artist Common and Jimmi Simpson. The Fosters are mistaken for the couple that they stole the reservation from and are caught in drama regarding a flash drive that they must return. They need help and turn to Mark Wahlberg's character Holbrooke for help. The scenes with Holbrooke stole the movie as Claire (Tina) became very flirty and flustered. The reaction of Phil (Steve) to her flirty behavior is funny plus Wahlberg's laid back "Im rich and a ladies man" character made for the best parts in the movie. The movie continues as they get deeper and deeper into scandal and they must come out of their boring shells to protect themselves and their family. Movie also stars: Taraji P. Henson in a bad wig as Detective Arroyo, James Franco, Mila Kunis, and William Fichtner.

I thought this movie was gonna be a boring slightly funny movie to past time but I enjoyed it. So did others in the theatre by the sounds of laughter and clapping! Also gotta love a good Gag Reel at the end!

I give this move a 4 out of 5 stars in the Romantic Comedy Catagory.
A "See it in Theatres" rating if you will.
