New Release: Date Night DVD and Blu-ray

Date Night movie sceneTwo of the of the funniest people on TV take center stage in the movie Date Night, which arrived on Blu-ray and DVD on Aug. 10, 2010, from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, following a $94 million run at the box office.

The comedy film stars Steve Carell (TV’s The Office) and Tina Fey (TV’s 30 Rock) as a sensible, loving couple with two kids and a house in suburban New Jersey as they spend a “date night” by going to Manhattan’s hottest new restaurant without a reservation. What follows is a decidedly wild ride that goes hilariously awry as they embark on a dangerous series of adventures to save their lives … and marriage.
