What Was Your First Movie Date?

Buzz In: What Was Your First Movie Date?

I've asked about the first movie you remember seeing in theaters (The Little Mermaid is mine!), but here's something even those of us with not-so-great memories should be able to recall: your first movie date. I was in high school and went to the local mall with a guy to see The Birdcage. It wasn't exactly the most romantic of choices, but the funny scenes gave us plenty to laugh about, as we strolled around the JCPenneys to kill time before my mom pulled up to take me home. To this day, I still associate the film with that Saturday (and all of my excited, first-date feelings) whenever it comes on TV.

Your turn! What's the first movie you ever saw on a date?

I don't recall the title, because it was an independent horror movie that was very poorly done. What I DO remember is a scene where the monsters in the main character's basement were reaching their octopus-like tenacles up the basement stairs and grabbing people by the ankles. I used it as an opportunity to pretend I was scared and lean up against my date. But I think that I scared him by doing so, because I could feel his heart pounding through his upper arm!!!

My first date, I wanted to see Aladdin and he wanted to see A Few Good Men, so we compromised and saw Forever Young with Mel Gibson. By the end, we were laughing in hopes he'd crash his plane thru the house and run over his wife... I think our movie choice was probably a bit dry for 10 year olds :)

Ironically enough it was French Kiss. With a girl. We did not French Kiss ;)

Mine was "Great Expecations" the Gwnyneth/Ethan version. It was my first "real" date and I remember when they sang "Besa Me Mucho" my boyfriend held my hand and sang it in my ear, and I had like an out-of-body experience-cheesy, I know, but that's young love!

I almost saw "Clockers" on one of my first dates, but it was sold out. I had to research movies released in 1996, and the first movie I *probably* saw with my then boyfriend was "Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy"

Ghost, in middle school. My date, very hot, cried in the movie and also on our next date . . . Three Men and a Little Lady. He grew up to be the hottest guy at my high school and I could never get a date with him again.

Terminal Velocity. It was such a bad, cheesy movie!

In junior high, the guy I was "going out with" took me to see Mission Impossible. His mom drove - hehe. :)

I don't remember my first movie date, but my most memorable was going to see The Sixth Sense. My date screamed and almost threw his popcorn during one particularly scary scene. I should've taken that as a red flag of what was to come... :headsmack:

Gosh, I don't remember. @_@ I know what you mean, kismekate! My date and I watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. And during Benjamin's "peak" years, I involuntarily sighed. A very AUDIBLE sigh. My date just looked at me. He should know why.. sure, he's straight but he ain't blind.

Meet Joe Black. Very hard to concentrate on my date when Brad Pitt was so amazingly good looking on that big screen.
