Romantic comdey

Steve Carell: fortysomething Phil Foster, a tax lawyer
Tina Fey: his wife Claire, a real estate agent
Common: gun-toting Collins
Jimmi Simpson: his buddy Armstrong
Taraji Henson: NYPD Detective Arroyo
Mark Wahlberg: security expert Holbrooke Grant
James Franco: Chase "Taste" Tripplehorn
Mila Kunis: his girlfriend Whippit
Ray Liotta: mob boss Joe Miletto

Even nice people can get themselves in over their head. Such is the case with Phil and Claire (who come across as a real couple) and this leads to an action-packed evening. There are some clever lines and a lot of sight gags to keep things interesting.

With a fairly short running time (less than 90 minutes) thanks to some crisp editing it moves along at a good clip.

for sexual and crude content throughout, language, some violence and a drug reference.
