Movie Reviews: New Releases for May 22

The Lovebirds ***1/2 The conceit at the core here is hardly original—everything from Manhattan Murder Mystery to Date Night has played the “couple in a relationship rut get their lives spiced up through mortal danger” card—but it also hardly matters when the material is this funny.
