In case you haven’t heard by now… Ben Affleck stars in a new movie called Gone Girl, a story about marriage…  a dark take on marriage, if you will. Without seeing the movie, I went along to the New York red carpet premiere. I didn’t know what to expect when asking the stars of the film the hard hitting questions.

Also in the movie is Doogie… err.. Neil Patrick Harris and Madea… err… Tyler Perry. When I caught up with these guys on the Red Carpet, I felt that I needed to ask for some advice about marriage.

Was this movie going to help me get some romance with my wife after making this a date night movie? 

Ben Affleck, Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry each gave mixed answers on whether or not this a “date night” movie.

I’ve since seen this film, without my wife!

It was a big night at the New York Premiere. Since the premiere, Gone Girl has moved it’s way up to the number one movie in America. Based on the best selling book, director David Fincher has managed to make a movie that is more thriller than melodrama about the modern marriage.

From a movie review angle, I though the film was fantastic and gave me the right thrills at the correct times. But this video is not a review. It’s me being awkward, again, in front of celebrities. It’s kind of what I do best. Enjoy.

And… sorry for mentioning ‘murder,’ NPH. My bad.

Watch the trailer for Gone Girl, below:
