Top 5 Date Movies of All Time

Here they are, in reverse order. The indisputable top five greatest date movies of all time are listed below. This means that these movies are very enjoyable to watch on a date. If you can score a date, any one of these might be the way to go.

5. The Princess Bride

What’s not to like here? It’s Funny and Sad. There’s Action and Romance. Andre the Giant speaks poetry. If you and your lady-friend / fella-friend have somehow missed seeing this one during the last 20 years, you need to rectify that gap in your life. I’m going to watch it with my mom tonight (not a date) for her birthday.

4. The Ghost and Mr. Chicken

“Date Movie?! How is that a Date Movie!?” This is probably what you just thought in a voice sounding eerily like Jimmy Stewart. What’s more date friendly than a little suspense to go with your comedy and romance? Get the lady (or timid fellow) a little more snuggly. Plus the scene on the front Porch where Luther is trying to tell her that he likes her is simply beautiful and so painfully awkward.

3. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

A romance with quite a bit of darkness thrown in. The party scene always feels like I’m reading a Fitzgerald novel which is fun. You find yourself caring about some pretty selfish and despicable people and then you’re happy after being sad. Plus, Deep Blue Something highly recommends this movie as being good for your relationships.

2. The Notebook

The book was terrible, the movie was great. It’s not often I will ever esteem a movie above a book, but in this case that is most certainly true. Great date movie. It’s a little racy, so for those of you who like to bring small children on your dates (weirdos!) you might want to call a sitter for this one.

1. Say Anything

John Cusack holds the radio over his head.
