Top Date-Night Movies For Couples

Watching a movie is a great way to spend time with your significant other. And date night movies need to meet specific criteria.

They have to be entertaining enough to please two people that potentially have very different tastes.

They should be heartwarming, at least enough to stoke the romantic flames of a couple that have to navigate their relationship though the boring, hard realities of daily life. And they shouldn’t bum either of you out.

Here are a few really good date-night movies that you and your partner are sure to enjoy.

The Notebook

Some may call this a bit of a vanilla romance, but overall, this movie is charming and sweet

The Notebook is about two people who fall deeply in love: Allie, a girl from a very wealthy family and Noah, a poor boy from a working-class family.

This is one movie that is sure to tug at your heartstrings and make you hold onto your partner for dear life.

To All The Boys I Loved Before

Based on Jenny Han’s best-selling novel of the same name, this Netflix teen rom-com follows Lara Jean, who writes love letters to her former crushes without intending to send them. But when they get mysteriously sent out, Lara Jean must deal with the good — and not-so-good —consequences.

And if you can’t get enough after this movie, watch the next two sequels and make your evening a triple feature.

Date Night

How ironic, right?

A bored couple decides that they’d like to have a romantic date. When they are unable to get a table at a swanky New York restaurant, the husband decides to be spontaneous and takes another couple’s reservation. A case of mistaken identity leads the couple on the wildest night of their life.

This movie will keep you laughing whilst encouraging you and your partner to be more spontaneous.

50 First Dates

50 First Dates follows the story of Henry Roth, a man who lives and works in Hawaii. He has a series of flings before falling in love with Lucy Whitmore

Lucy suffers from a form of short-term memory loss that makes her forget everything from the previous day, including Henry. Henry is so dedicated to her that he has to find ways to introduce himself to her every day.

This film has all the humor and campiness, but it also has a powerful message for couples. Henry’s willingness to go to extreme lengths to help Lucy remember him is an expression of true love. 

You and your partner can reflect on what you would be willing to do to help one another in an extreme situation like this.

Mamma Mia!

The girl realizes that one of these men is her father and decides to invite all 3 of them to the wedding and find out who her father really is.

This very funny, energizing, and emotional movie will charge you and your partner up with a good mood.

One Day

Relationships can be complicated, and One Day does a great job of showing the ways that people can grow together and apart. 

This film is about the importance of staying present and maneuvering through all of life’s challenges to find what is truly important.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

A handsome man who has been spoiled with attention from many women bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. 

At the same time, Andie, a magazine columnist, decides to write about how to make a man leave a woman in 10 days and she wants to practice her ideas.

Needless to say that these two, who are each as bad as each other, go through a lot trying to complete their agendas, eventually falling for each other.

This is a feel-good film, which is sure to entertain you and your partner. Together you can wonder about what, if anything, you’d change if you could travel back in time.

Couples Retreat

Couples Retreat follows four couples as they are placed in awkward and hilarious situations. Although this film is a comedy, it encourages viewers to take stock of their own relationships.

This movie reinforces that no relationship is perfect or easy. Happy couples put lots of effort into making sure that their relationship grows and flourishes. 

Watching this movie is an opportunity to get a few laughs, but it will also offer you space to discuss things that you can do to make your relationship stronger.
