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.
