7 Terrible Movies To See On A Date

The spark of love is kindled in the "Weird" Al Yankovic section. 

If you’re looking for a fun date, the movies are always a good bet. But there are pitfalls to avoid. For instance, if you’re trying to impress, it’s likely you’ll want the home turf advantage. That means you only go to restaurants you know. The same should apply to movies.

I’m not saying that you should go see a movie that you’ve already viewed (though it is a good idea), but there are certain terrible date films you should avoid. First of all, you don’t want anything about ruined lives break ups, or spousal abuse. Those films are for legally-separated people.

At any rate, here are seven films to avoid on your next movie date.

(500) Days of Summer

Don’t allow yourself to be sucked in by this one. Yes. It has Zooey Deschanel. Yes. It has Joseph Gordon Levitt. Yes. It has quirky animated interludes. But it also shows a pretty dreadful portrayal of a relationship going to shit. Personally, I blame IKEA. There’s no way to get out of there without a fight.


Fellas, nothing is going to light her fire more than a film featuring a couple grief-stricken over the death of their child. Throw in some intense hallucinations and genital mutilation, and that kitten should be really purring. If that still doesn’t do the trick, go ahead and lean in closely before whispering how director Lars Von Trier sympathizes with Nazis.
