Looking for date movie recommendations? Nothing too heavy, too dudeish, too rom-comy, or romantic in general? Something you’ll both enjoy on the big screen, and that will be worth leaving the house for? Maybe something actually macho or girly because you both like either of those? Give some of these date movies out right now a try! Hollywood has all sorts of great date movies currently in theaters to offer you and your paramour if hitting the theaters is your thing.

If you're going on a first date, maybe take in some lighter fair - something with cool visuals while you check each other out with your best side eye. Fifth or sixth date, go with something a little more out there and fun - a film you can talk about for hours afterward, while you awkwardly try to decide if this person is your official girlfriend or boyfriend yet.

Have you been together for ages? One of these awesome current movies to take a date to can still make for a fun evening. By now, you know what you both like and are sure to find a great movie escape from arguing about whose turn it is to do the dishes or get the kids ready for bed.
