When we started hearing about the new Steve Carell-Tina Fey comedy Date Night earlier this year, I kind of pictured a witty, domestic comedy of errors.

Boy, was I wrong.
Judging by the movie’s just-leaked trailer, Date Night (coming in April) is as much an action pic as a comedy — like an earth-bound Mom and Dad Save the World, or Mr. and Mrs. Smith with fewer assault weapons. Take a look:
