What are the best date movies? That's a tricky question, because you've got your first date movies and your second date movies...and so on. This list of top films for date night includes a wide variety of different kinds of films that will hopefully make for an excellent evening of snuggling and discussion. Many of these films are some of the best romantic comedies of all time. These are the movies you really can't go wrong watching on date night. Vote up your favorites, vote down any you had to suffer through on bad dates and of course, rerank this list any way you want. And, if your favorite date night film is missing, add it!

While a list of the best date movies will likely be dominated by romantic comedies ("rom-coms"), this list also includes some great dramas, some classic funny movies and a handful of horror movies, too. Why? Because not everybody likes Hollywood rom-coms. Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. A great date night movie can spur some interesting discussion and, in the case of horror movies, can bring you two much closer - literally.

One caveat with the date night movie choices: Please, unless you are absolutely certain your sweetie loves period movies, do not, repeat, do not make them suffer through long, sweepingly epic films like 'The English Patient.' Yes, the movie is romantic but trust me, stick with the lighter fare. The same goes for other great epic movies like the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy. It's fine if your date is a huge fan, but if not? Bad idea. Also, beware the tearjerker movies. You don't want to be sitting there blubbering like a baby in front of a date when Mufasa dies in 'The Lion King,' do you?

If you're really in doubt, go with one of these highly rewatchable movies and/or a selection from this list of the best movies of all time.
