Sometimes life can be hectic and while movies aren’t always the perfect date night activity, the DVD player and some take-out from your favorite restaurant can do the trick quite nicely.
Of course, you’ll need to have the right date night movies to set the proper tone.
Instead of going out and getting the latest Redbox blockbuster, consider any of these 5 old standards.
You’ll have a hard time finding a better date night movie than one that will have her literally jumping into your lap.
This movie (and it’s two sequels) has all that and more. Adrenaline is a standard while watching the film and it has great acting and features characters that are engrossing to say the least.
When the film is over you can have lots of fun staying up all night together because, seriously, who can sleep after watching this?
2. The Blindside
This one is a “bring the box of Kleenex” film.
While the story itself isn’t sad, it is, at the very lease poignant which makes it a sure hit with the ladies for date night. The combination of Sandra Bullock and football make it a great choice for the guys as well.
The fact that it is based on a true story makes it all the more touching and a great night to have her feeling emotional and romantic.
3. Dangerous Liaisons
You can’t get any more than what this movie offers for a date night movie fest.
Seduction. Intrigue. Scandal.
It’s all there and more. The acting is superb and the film is engrossing. The time period is far removed from the every day.
It’s a great escape film the two of you can enjoy together – time and time again if necessary.
4. Mr. and Mrs. Smith
My girlfriend loves this film. It’s a great Angelina Jolie movie and also stars Brad Pitt.
The movie itself is action packed and full of not-so-passive aggression. If only all couples could work out their marital difficulties this easily. It certainly would help you both appreciate the normalcy of your lives together.
5. The Tourist
Another Angeline Jolie flick. This time with Johnny Depp. Need anyone say more?
This movie is filled with twists, turns and misdirection. Once you know how the story ends, its worth going back and watching again to look for hints and clues.
This film is great date night fun for a film that’s hard to grow tired of.
Date night will never be a complete and total dud if you load up your DVD with any of these great date night movies.
Just remember that the purpose of date night is to spend time together so choose movies you’re both likely to have at least some interest in watching.
