Thoughts: I’m going to preface this by saying that I love Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. Both are engaging, creative actors who have helped put a squeaky shine on many a dull film. That being said, I’m ready for both actors to go outside of their comfort zone. With Fey’s 30 Rock in its final season and Rudd’s career doing just fine, how about the two actors try for something a bit unexpected…just to feel the waters. I felt the same way with the Fey/Steve Carrell collaboration of Date Night…two actors that could do this kind of role in their sleep and whose presence in an unremarkable looking movie just smells of easy money. Director Paul Weitz has a nice track record and I’m sure this will be perfectly entertaining – but I do want to see Fey and Rudd step it up a bit.
