Movie Diary 4/6/2010

Multiple Sarcasms (Brooks Branch, 2010). There’s a 2007 copyright at the end. Timothy Hutton wants to be a playwright, so he dresses like one and grows a persistent three-day beard, and Dana Delany and Mira Sorvino are his wife and best friend. It’s 1979. Kind of a puzzler. (full review 5/7)

Date Night (Shawn Levy, 2010). The end-credits outtakes suggest mucho improvising by Tina Fey and Steve Carrell, which is pretty much what you’d want to happen if you had them in your movie, right? And they are the movie. (full review 4/9)
