"Change Up"

Ryan Reynolds and Justin Bateman play best friends in this comedy.  Storyline is similar to other movies where two people switch places as a result of a "wish".  In this movie, two best friends – one is single and carefree and the other is married with kids and has a career, switch lives and learn the good and bad about what each lifestyle brings.
Funny moments and was entertained but would wait as a first date movie.  Especially, the unrated version... kinkiness and "what not" may damage a relationship before it gets started.

Horrible Bosses

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis hate there bosses.  To the point that they must kill them.  After being swindled by a "hitman" that they thought would do the killing for them, they take on the task themselves. Funny movie but would hold on as a first date.  A lot of situations may not be appropriate for a relationship just starting out.  Else, do check it out when you get a chance.  Great seeing Kevin Spacey as a psycho boss, Jenifer Aniston as the sexy but sexual harassing Dentist, and Colin Farrell as the coke addicted inheritor of the family business!

"Zoo Keeper"

Kevin James plays a "not so good at love" Zoo Keeper in this movie.  It's a mix of comedy, romance, and talking animals.  Safe first date movie,... but kinda drags along in the laughs department.  Still liked it but am glad to have rented it instead of seen it at the Theater.

"Captain America: The First Avenger"

Chris Evans plays Captain America.  He starts out as a skinny weakling, designated as "4F" – unfit for military duty.  So, he is unable to join the Army and fight the Nazis!  Somehow, someone notices his motivation to contribute to the War and gets placed into an experimental program.  The program is top secret and puts into play a serum that enhances the human body.  Chris is selected to "guinea pig" the serum,... which transforms him from skinny weakling to superhuman hero!  However, the serum is lost when an extremist German faction kills the inventor and steals the serum.
Good movie, but like other "DC Comic" movies would wait as a first date movie.  See it later when you get past the first date.  See more on IMDB.

"Green Lantern"

Ryan Reynolds plays a "hotshot" pilot who fears nothing. Blake is a pilot also and is a key player in the company Ryan and her work for (or is it own).... Cannot recall – old age starting to set in.  Anyhow, Ryan is chosen by the "Green Lantern" – protectors of the Universe from many different worlds!  Yada, yada, yada,... can see why it did not make it big in theaters.  Okay storyline, just not into it though.  Wait as a first date movie.  For more. check out the info on IMBD.

"Transformers: Dark of the Moon"

Shia Lebouf returns for another movie in the Transformers' franchise.  This one has Shia struggling with life after college, a new hottie girlfriend – (who is more successful), and a struggle between the good Transformers and the bad Decepticons!
Safe first date movie but would hold on one watching it for a first date.  No big surprises in the storyline,.... But, am biased as a non-Transformers fan.

"Bad Teacher"

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel are teachers at a public school.  Cameron is not a very good teacher – more like bad, and Jason is a laid back gym teacher.  Cameron does not plan to teach for long but when he wedding plans are canceled by the rich groom, she returns to teaching.  Not motivated, relying heavily on "media" to "teach" the children, she sleeps throughout the day.  That is, until she finds out about a bonus for the teacher whose class does the best on a standardized test!  With this incentive, she turns things around, sort of....
Okay movie,.. a rental for a rainy day.  Else, would not watch it for a first date movie!
