Looking for date movie recommendations? Nothing too heavy, too dudeish, or too rom-comy? Something you’ll both enjoy, 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.
