"Country Strong"

Gwyneth Paltrow in a role as a Country Singer on the edge of a breakdown.
Tim McGraw is her Manager and husband. Issues related to an drunken
incident in Dallas while Kelly Canter (Gwyneth) is 5 months pregnant form
the base of the storyline. In parallel, two up and coming Country Singer
and Songwriters play in to the story.

Liked the songs, story was okay, glad to have waited for it to come out in
DVD. Was pleasantly surprised,... but I am a sucker for good music! Safe
first date movie.

"The Tourist"

... Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp play a Secret Agent and a Tourist, respectively.  Angelina is being tracked closely by a number of agencies for her connection to "someone".  That "someone" instructs Angelina to chose a person of same build and height as him and then act as if you know that person. That person is Johnny Depp, an American Tourist!
Good movie but slow to start.  Would hold off as a first date movie but would rent it.  PS: Expect a few twists and turns!

"I Love You Phillip Morris"

... movie with Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor as convicts, gay men, and
lovers. Overall, not a good movie. Forget this one, especially for a first
date movie. Not worth the time to watch it nor the $2 to rent it.
