Spoiler Alert! This post gives fair warning of an uncomfortable scene in this movie, as well as plot development points.
So, I got to go on my first date with my husband in a year. We went to a nice Italian restaurant for lunch and then went to a matinee showing of ‘Date Night’. We were all set to enjoy the film, and we did…until toward the end when an long scene in an underground stripping and prostitution club where the couple in the movie must pretend to be stripper/prostitutes in order to get close to a corrupt public official.:eek: Now, thankfully, I don’t think there was any actual nudity in the scene (it was a comedy, for goodness sake), but the dancing and the acting was so raunchy and gross, and the underlying plot story that orgies and other depraved acts happen in this club, was enough to have me covering my eyes and shifting uncomfortably in my seat. I kept thinking ‘When will this be over? Should I just walk out?’ Finally, the scene shifted to the rooftop ‘gotcha’ scene where the bad guys get caught and the good guys get patted on the back for helping the cops and then they get to go home. Overall, the premise of the movie was fun: boring date nights lead to a spontaneous extravagant date night that leads to a crazy adventure that re-cements the bond between the couple. However, my memory of this film and my experience of it were tarnished by the portrayal of the underground sex club. Does anyone else respond this way, even when the actors are not nude? I just cringe every time I think about it. And the crazy thing is, our deacon’s son was our babysitter, so the deacon wanted to know if we enjoyed the movie. I stuttered, but honestly told him that most of it was hysterical but there was a very uncomfortable scene toward the end that ruined the film in my opinion. He looked surprised and puzzled, probably because it was surprising for a comedy, and because he was hoping to hear that we went out and had a great time since his son was the one who was staying with our children. :shrug:
