New Releases for the Week of April 9, 2010


April 9, 2010

Tina Fey likes what she sees; Steve Carell, not so much.

DATE NIGHT

(20th Century Fox) Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Leighton Meester, Ray Liotta, Mila Kunis, Mark Ruffalo, Kristen Wiig, Taraji Henson, Common. Directed by Shawn Levy

All Steve Carrell and Tina Fey wanted to do was have a nice evening out. Perhaps dinner in a nice restaurant, maybe even a movie afterwards. Instead, they wind up running for their lives from the mob after a case of mistaken identity in this new comedy from the director of the Night at the Museum movies. At least this ought to teach them not to take other people’s dinner reservations again!

Letters to God

(Vivendi) Ralph Waite, Bailee Madison, Tanner Maguire, Jeffrey S.S. Johnson. A mail carrier is unexpectedly affected by the letters of a cancer-stricken 8-year-old to God in this heart-warming tale of faith and courage. Incidentally, this is loosely based on a true story.
