    Friday QOTW! 7/19 - Go to date movie?

    My Friday Question of The Week:What is your Go-To Date movie?

    Like if she's going back to your place and you're gonna watch a movie together, what is that movie that always pops in your head?

    Mine is probably The Terminal. Funny enough to keep me interested. Girly enough for her. Boring enough to get frisky at certain parts. Plus for some reason, most 18-22 yr old women have not seen it.

    500 Days of Summer is a close second because hipsters...

    That is because they were 9-13 when it came out and it didn't receive that high of reviews.

    For clarification's sake, is this a movie you would take a date to, knowing before hand it is a date? Or is this more, you bring a girl home from a bar and need to put on a movie to cut the awkwardness before things get real?

    Either way, I don't have one because I'm boring and married, but I'm just curious what you mean.

    I would say closer to the second one. Knowing it is a date you would probably pick one she would like.

    I think it depends on the ages of you what would be a good choice. I know same sex dates with movies have three pretty go to movies: Mean Girls, Easy A, and Pitch Perfect.

    Why wouldn't you just rent a movie that is recently out that neither of you have seen?

    Why pick some mediocre movie from 2007 when there are plenty of mediocre movies this year?

    If you're looking to seduce . . . pr0n. Chicks dig pr0n

    If she's a girlfriend, Friends With Benefits.

    If things are in the process...start with Pursuit of Happyness, then go to The Notebook to seal the deal.

    Fatal Attraction


    I actually WENT on a date to see it in the theaters when it was out...

    She thought the Michael Douglas character was the "bad" person for cheating on his wife. I couldn't say much but thought, "Yeah, but sheesh, you didn't think the Glen Close character took it a bit over the top when it was supposed to be No Strings Attached?"

    AWKWARD!!!


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    I remember when fatal Attraction first came out. Ask any woman what it was about, and she'd say it was about a guy who cheated on his wife and got what he deserved. Ask any man, and it was about some crazy ***** who tried to kill this guy.

    Put on whatever your favorite movie is, if she hates it, throw her out.

    Princess Bride. If you're using any other movie you're doing it wrong.

    A movie for a date with my wife (requirements):

    1. No animals can die, be injured or look sad/mildly uncomfortable

    2. Humans can die in a wild variety of gruesome ways

    3. No fluffy romance or love story to speak of.

    4. It must be quirky.

    5. Added bonus if it is weird.

    So, my choice of movies in the early going are not what won her heart.

    My Mrs will go watch just about anything as long as she gets to have the big barrel o' popcorn covered in max cholesterol butter grease.

    She prefers superheroes though (esp Marvel). Those are the ones she really wants me to take her to.

    Wow, your wife is complicated. I just have one rule to follow when picking a movie to watch with my wife.

    1. I will hate it.
