You can tell a lot about a man by the types of movies he likes. (You can also tell a lot about a man who will actually come to your place to watch a movie without any ulterior motives.) Most men will not opt to watch the latest chick flick and not every woman wants to watch some action-figure looking man getting his face punched in. So, how do you and your boo meet in the middle when it comes to movies? You give him something he would like, wrapped in something you like!
Here is a fool-proof assortment of five of the best first date movies to test your boo’s movie preferences!
1. Love Jones
Now this is a risky one because it just may end in you prematurely giving up the goods. But if you avoid following the story line, it’s a great one! Released in 1997, this romantic drama starring Nia Long and Larenz Tate follows a writer in Chicago who starts dating a beautiful photographer. While trying to figure out if they’re serious or just “kickin’ it,” a ton of complications are thrown their way.
There’s nothing like a big laugh to bring two people together. This 2004 comedy starring the always hilarious Will Ferrell centers around the fictional Ron Burgundy, San Diego’s top rated newsman in the 70s male-dominated broadcasting world. An uncomfortable change for Ron and his cronies shakes things up when an ambitious woman is hired as a new anchor.
3. The Jerk
This is a 1979 classic directed by Carl Reiner with Steve Martin as its star. The Jerk chronicles the life of Navin Johnson, a man who was raised as a “poor black child” who is surprised when his mother finally reveals that he is White. After this momentous discovery, the loveable dimwit sets out on an adventure of self-discovery.
4. Fifth Element
Action meets Sci-fi meets comedy by way of cheesy dialogue. This high budget 1997 film is a fun and easy watch with a great “a-ha” ending. In the colorful future, a cab driver unwittingly becomes the central figure in the search for a legendary cosmic weapon to keep evil at bay.
5. Lars And The Real Girl
Starring America’s current favorite heart-throb Ryan Gosling as Lars, an awkward (at best) young man who purchases a sex doll over the internet and starts a relationship with it, to the confusion of his small town.
