Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A couple whose lives have become a bit boring initiate “date night” where they go out and dine as if new to the relationship. They go to an expensive restaurant but there are no tables, but when another couple have not turned up they pretend to be them and take their table. Unknown to them they have assumed the identity of a couple who are being chased by the mafia, and they are plunged into the violence of the underworld.
Content Lots of foolishness as the couple try to survive in an environment they do not understand and try to locate the couple who they are standing in for, including visits to a pole dancing club, car chases and threats of violence
A View I enjoyed this a lot, and laughed out loud at some of the scenes. Good fun, and worth your time if you like absurd comedy.
