"The Proposal"

Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds star in this upbeat comedy.  Sandra is about to be deported.  Ryan, who works for her, is manipulated into marrying Sandra.  Problem:  Their business deal turns into love!
Great storyline for a comedy.  Throw in a great supporting cast with Betty White, Mary Steenburgen, Craig T. Nelson, and others, and you will be entertained.
A definite first-date movie.  PS: Stick around for the funny scenes at the movie's end. Also, "Ramone" may be the hidden star in this movie.

"Gran Torino"

Clint Eastwood movie about Walter, an old Korean War Veteran and recent widower,  having to deal with change.  After his wife's death, Walter unwillingly becomes involved in a "good versus evil" relationship with his Laotian neighbors and a local gang. Defending his neighbor and befriending the family, help is on its way.
Not the normal "Dirty Harry" style movie but a good one.  Hated the ending but understood why it was so.  Check it out some time, should be safe for a first-date movie but would pick one that was more lighthearted than this one for that first-date.
