IN THEATRES: FRIDAY 4/9
Us Rating: ** 1/2

In this giddy but uneven caper, a square couple (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) get into serious trouble when dirty cops mistake them for blackmailers -- and hunt them across NYC. While Fey's funny as usual and Carell tickles, the script lacks the snap of The Office or 30 Rock, and it has an awkward finale at a strip club. Still, parents will appreciate the leads' nuanced portrayal of a bickering yet ultimately affectionate married couple.
