"Adjustment Bureau" with Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.  Matt is a Senator who loses his re-election bid.  Emily is a stranger that Matt meets by chance.  Their brief encounter causes a ripple effect that leads to Matt's success....  Except, they were supposed to never meet again.  Unknown to everyone is the "Adjustment Bureau" – a secret organization of men wearing hats.  Their purpose is to make sure everyone's life moves according to "Plan"!
Liked the storyline and a safe first date move.  Do rent it when you get a chance.

"Just Go With It"

Comedy with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston.  Adam plays a plastic surgeon who fakes marriage to hook up with younger women.  Jennifer is a single mother of two children and Adam's assistant.  When Adam meets "the Woman" of his dreams, everything seems to be going well except she finds Adam's fake wedding ring.  Unable to explain why he has a ring, he is left without a chance at a long-term relationship.  That is, until he tells her that he is married but getting a divorce... a divorce from Jennifer???
Not a bad story, harmless first date movie, even had Nicole Kidman playing a role.  Check it out when you get a chance.

"Gulliver's Travels"

Modernized version of the classic story by the same name.  Jack Black plays Gulliver, a mailroom employee at a multi-media company based in New York.  Amanda Peet is an editor at the company and also the woman Jack has a crush on!  So much of a crush that he plagiarizes a travel story, impresses Amanda, and wins an assignment for a travel piece about Bermuda. Too bad, Bermuda becomes the Bermuda Triangle!  After a wicked storm, Gulliver finds himself in the land of the Lilliputians....
Not a bad movie, glad to have rented it rather than seeing it a the Theater.  Safe first date movie... PS:  Emily Blunt and others play major/supporting roles in the movie.
