Phil (Carell) and Claire Foster (Fey) are a sensible, loving couple with two kids and a house in suburban New Jersey. The Fosters have set aside time for a weekly "date night" which is an attempt at re-experiencing the spice of the dates of yesteryear, involving the same weekly night out at the local Teaneck Tavern. Unfortunately their conversations quickly revert to the same chore-chat they have at the dinner table at home and there's little time for romance as they're mostly exhausted from their jobs and the kids.
After seeing two of their best friends - another married couple with kids in suburban New Jersey - split apart from living the same life they themselves lead, Phil and Claire begin to fear if their marriage will fall prey to the same fate.
In an attempt to take date night off auto-pilot, and hopefully inject a little spice into their lives, Phil decides a change of plans is in order and takes Claire into Manhattan to the city's hottest new restaurant -The Fosters. Phil forgot to make a reservation and hoping to be seated sometime before the clock strikes twelve, they steal another couple's reservations that haven't turned up - the Tripplehorns.
Unaware that the real Tripplehorns are a thieving couple being pursued by a pair of corrupt cops Phil and Claire soon find themselves on the run before they've even finished their risotto rapidly ending their romantic date. Embarking on a wild and dangerous series of crazy adventures, Phil and Claire have to save their lives and their marriage.
