Not sure how it ties in to the original Mad Max but this one turned out to be a good one to rent. May not make the First Date rating but still do check it out when you get a chance.
This one has Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron and has a story line that has Max helping out Charlize in a ploy to save some women.

Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton in a safe first date movie about two people who meet online for the sole purpose of a one night stand. Each has their reason for doing so; regardless, both endup having to spend another night - actually an entire day together, due to a snow storm.
Safe first date movie; was a pleasant surprise to have rented this one on a whim. Mainly rented it because I liked Miles Teller in another movie - Whiplash. Also, I like Analeigh in her role as the infatuated teen in Crazy, Stupid, Love.

Funny movie that set in England. Has Nick Frost, Rashida Jones, Chris O'Dowd, and Ian McShane as main characters.
Add Salsa dancing, funny moments of co-workers bantering about, and a light-hearted story line of one mans struggle to impress a pretty woman who turns out to his boss, too.
As luck would have it, they both like to Salsa! Safe first date movie. Do rent it when you get the chance! See more on IMDB.

Here is one I rented on a whim. Came out in 2014... two twins separated at birth during the hard times of the Great Depression. A poor family gives one of the twins to a Preacher and his wife who cannot have their own baby.
One becomes a Rock Star; the other struggles through life in a search for his calling. Eventually, things come together in the end.
Movie has a "hokie" feel to it; songs are okay, but in the end, did enjoy the movie. Save it for a rainy day and rent it then.
Hold as a first date movie. For more details, see it at IMDB!

Here is one that I have been meaning to see but never got around to it. Directed by Clint Eastwood; based on the Broadway Play of the same name... it's a look at Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons from their beginnings in New Jersey to fame and fortune as well as misfortune.
Good movie; okay for a first date. Just be aware that Frankie gets divorced.... also, did not know that Joe Pesci was involved in the Four Seasons briefly at their start. Sorta like a Talent Scout for them.
For more do see details at IMDB.
