Best Romantic Movies For Dates

Tuesday, July 26 by Shawna Williams

Tastes vary widely from person to person, but these best romantic movies for dates are sure to be pleasers, across the board. No matter your usual tastes, sometimes it's nice to indulge in a sappy romance movie on a date. Everyone likes a little romance in their lives.

  1. "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" While this movie may not be your "typical" romance flick, the entire premise is still one of romance. This is a movie to watch if you or your date have a a preference for off-the-wall Indie movies. Someone can still be right for you, even if you have them removed from your memories.
  2. "Say Anything" The quintessential date movie, "Say Anything" has made women, young and old, go "Aww!" Everyone knows the scene where John Cusack is holding up the boombox outside his love interest's windows. A classic that never gets old.
  3. "Casablanca" Even more of a classic than movies from the '80s. "Casablanca" may be in black and white, but that does not detract a bit from the old-time, classic romance. You and your date into genuine classics? Watch "Casablanca."
  4. "Edward Scissorhands" If girly, gushy, romance movies aren't your thing, consider "Edward Scissorhands." One of Johnny Depp's earlier roles, Winona Ryder co-stars, before she started shoplifting. A similar premise to Beauty and the Beast, Ryder's character falls for Edward, even though he is looked down on and shunned by the rest on the town for his disfigurement.
  5. "Brokeback Mountain" If you consider yourself to be more of a progressive and liberal kind of person, think about getting "Brokeback Mountain" for your next date. While it may focus on gay romance, it is romance none the less. Definitely not the typical "boy meets girl" kind of story.
