"Get Him to the Greek"

.... Jonah Hill and Russell Brand team up in this comedy about a record company intern's troubles to bring famous rock star - Aldous Snow (Russell Brand), to Los Angeles for a concert!  A lot of funny scenes, especially liked Sean Combs portrayal of a "gangsta recording company President and Owner"!  Won't recommend as a first date movie mainly for the sexual references and heavy use of profanity.... But, it was still funny, even if you already know how it will end.

"Diary of a Wimpy Kid"

Jeff Kinney's illustrated novel about a sixth-grade student comes to life on the Big Screen.  Never heard about the books but heard from others that it is popular with elementary school kids.  Decided to check it out after hearing about it on a morning radio show that I listen to on my way to work.  Pleasantly surprised with the "Wimpy Kid's" antics and observations.  Specially liked the "cheese" scenes.  Safe first date movie that should show your "wimpy" side to your potential long-term friend!

"Cop Out"

... Movie with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as two cops struggling with their career, personal life, etc,.... Did not watch it all, funny moments but not enough to keep watching it.  Stopped the DVD after about 40".  Not a first date movie.

"The Losers"

... movie with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Columbus Short, and ├ôscar Jaenada as a CIA Black Ops Team betrayed and left for dead by an evil mastermind named Max (Jason Patric).  Stuck in Bolivia, they work on plans to return to the US.  Fortune comes their way when they meet the sexy Zoe Saldana, who hires them to find and kill Max!
A lot of shooting, killing, and fighting.  But, something was missing. Better to skip as a first date movie!
