Six Great Date Night Movies

Money is at the top of most couple’s argument list. So why not forego the usual dinner out and trip to the movies, on occasion, and take in a classic at home.

Listed below, in no particular order, are six movies you and your love can enjoy on date night. From great romantic comedies to classics, to some you may not be familiar with, this list has it all.

Hitch (2005)

Rated PG-13 for language and some strong sexual references.

Date Doctor Alex Hitchen (Will Smith) tries to help his clients get the women of their dreams.  But things begin to fall apart when his identity is revealed in a New York City tabloid. Also starring Kevin James, Amber Valletta, and Eva Mendes. This hilariously fun movie proves that it is always best to just be yourself – even if you are trying really hard to impress someone.

Some Like It Hot (1959)

Rated PG.

Two jazz musicians (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago and have to skip town before the mob kills them. Their hilarious escape leads them on a wild ride to joining an all-girl band headed for the sunny Florida. Also starring Marilyn Monroe. Love triangles abound – along with all the swingin’ music and gangster plots from the ‘20s you can enjoy.

Notting Hill (1999)

Rated PG-13 for sexual content and brief strong language.

Hollywood leading lady Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) and British travel bookseller William Thacker (Hugh Grant) just happen to bump into each other. They quickly fall in love, but their different lives and Anna’s actor boyfriend get in the way. This has to be one of my favorite romance movie picks of all time; it must be on your movie list.

It Happened One Night (1934)


Socialite Ellie Andrews runs away from her powerfully wealthy father to marry King Wesley, a society aviator. But she finds some obstacles along her bus route from Florida to New York, namely Peter Warne, a reporter who is secretly trying to get her exclusive story. If you are not used to black and white movies, try and look past the no-color factor to enjoy one of the best romance classics.

Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

Rated PG for some language.

In an attempt to find a new mother, Jonah puts his depressed father, Sam, on a national radio show to talk about the recent loss of his wife. Thousands of women write to him, including Annie, who is engaged, but feels a pull toward getting to know Sam. This is the absolute best of the Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan romantic comedies.

Charlotte Gray (2001)

Rated PG-13 for some war-related violence, sensuality and brief strong language.

Desperate to find her boyfriend, a pilot who was shot down over World War II France, Charlotte joins the Secret Service. Behind enemy lines, circumstances aren’t exactly what she expected they’d be, including her new friendship with some of the locals fighting in the French Resistance. Starring Cate Blanchett, Billy Crudup, and Michael Gambon.
