... movie with George Clooney as an American contracted by "covert operatives" to support their field activities.  In this case, build a weapon and deliver it on time per the specs provided.  A tired George Clooney accepts the assignment but indicates it is his last one then he is done.
Action in the first 5 minutes was fast, then it slowed down... A LOT!  To the point of skipping the ending and turning the DVD back in.  However, enduring the slow action, was able to see the movie to its end.  Too bad.... should have returned it.
Action was too slow to recommend as a first date movie.  Be wary of this one!

... Spy-Thriller with Angelina Jolie and Liev Schreiber as CIA Agents working on ferreting out a Russian mole.  That is, the Russian mole is Angelina Jolie.  Her mission is to kill the Russian President in order to place blame on the United States!

Fast action, lots of twists and turns, a safe first-date movie.  Just be prepared for an ending that sets the stage for sequels in the future - think "Salt" franchise.  Will see how the storyline plays out....

"Easy A"

... Emma Stone and a host of characters in a movie about a high school girl who gains a reputation as an "easy girl". Emma plays nice girl Olive who tells a little lie to her best friend in order to avoid a camping trip!  Olive lies about having a date that lasted the whole weekend... and loses here her virginity to a "Community College Guy".  The lie spreads, gets out of control, and the truth must get out.

Safe first date movie.  Glad to have rented it instead of watched at the Movies.  Ending was expected but still liked it mainly because I am an Emma Stone fan!

"Going the Distance"

... Drew Barrymore and Justin Long in another "Girl meets Boy Genre" movie.
Drew is a Newspaper Intern working in New York. Justin is a Music Promoter.
Over an incident at the Centipede Arcade Video Game they meet and become
fast friends, lovers, and .... yada, yada, yada! Funny moments, great
scenes with a funny Christina Applegate playing the married and more mature
sister. Even throw in Charley from "Always Sunny in Philadelphia" playing a
friend of Justin's. Liked the movie, especially the lovemaking scene in the
dining room. Safe first date movie, do rent this one!
