Watched them again after seeing it when it first came out as a rental; this one gets a thumbs up as a first date movie.  Also, it is one that is okay to rent.  Has the right mix of romance plus like the music from Steven Strait and Ashlee Simpson.

World War Z

Brad Pitt saves the world when a mysterious virus causes people to go crazy and maim other people, who then become infected, who then infect others, who then,.... Good movie; okay to rent.  Would hold as a first date movie though.

Warm Bodies

Safe first date movie about Zombies who can revert back to being human again.  Light-hearted movie that gives the feeling that there is always hope regardless of what is happening to you.  Main actor is the same one that played the young boy in the movie "About a Boy".  Did well in this role, too!

The Great Gatsby

Did not read the book, did not see the original movie with Robert Redford.  But, did like it after things settled down to the story.  First part of the movie was confusing with the non-period music and flashy cinematography.  Don't play rap and mix it with current music themes when the movie is supposed to be set in the 1920's....  Overall, would say it's okay to rent but save it for a rainy day instead of risking it for a first date movie. 

Pain and Gain

Was sadly disappointed by this one.  Even worse, it is based on a true story.  Bodybuilders gone awry as they things go from bad to worse when they try to con an investor....  Does not make the first date movie list; strongly suggest not renting this one.

We're the Millers

Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston in a comedy about a drug dealer who hires a stripper, a runaway, and a geek to play his family so he can smuggle drugs across the border.  Funny movie with lots of laughs; would hold as a first date movie but do check it out when you get a chance!  Especially like Jennifer's "dance scene"!
