Eight Date Night–Inspired NBC Team-Ups We’d Like to See on the Big Screen

Date Night, the action-comedy of remarriage out tomorrow, stars 30 Rock's Tina Fey and The Office’s Steve Carell, the two main draws of NBC’s Thursday-night comedy haven. What better place to mine comedy movie stars from? So it seems logical to ask: What other combinations of actors from that lineup — Community, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, and The Office — could work on the big screen? And what kind of tried-and-true material should Hollywood plug those NBC stars into? We stayed up all night drinking green tea and eating Cookie Crisp and came up with the following eight movie pitches. Your own suggestions are, as always, welcome in the comments below.
