- "Jerry Maguire" "Jerry Maguire" is an ideal date movie for those unfamiliar with the concept. The romantic element isn't overbearing, and the sports element is fairly understated as well. Just enough of a tearjerker to get your date sniffling a little. Ideal for guaranteeing some cuddle action.
- "Crazy/Beautiful" "Crazy/Beautiful" is an unconventional romance movie. A privileged wild child meets a hardworking poor Latino boy. An excellent movie to bring back the memories of teen love.
- "Ghost" "Ghost" is a timeless classic that will always be a perfect date movie. If your date is a romantic, then "Ghost" will be right up their alley.
- "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" is an intense movie that is sure to make you and your date think.

- "Scream" "Scream" is the quintessential scary date movie. Horror movies are always a good choice for a movie date, because they give the perfect opportunity to get closer.
- "Say Anything…" "Say Anything…" is another timeless date movie. Everyone knows the infamous scene where John Cusack serenades his love interest with his ancient stereo. While that scene does, indeed, date the movie, it still sets a high standard for romance movies today.
