Let me tell you a little story. Here in Inuvik we don’t have any movie theatres. Because of that, the big thing to do whenever we go down south is to watch a movie at a theatre.
So this particular time, Shane picked the movie. I got my extra large popcorn and root beer and made myself comfortable in the chair- well, as comfortable as you can be in a movie theatre chair.
I can never wait for the movie to start eating my popcorn. There are so many previews and I really love popcorn. I don’t know how anyone could wait.
Anyway, so I ate my fill of popcorn and literally slumped over and went to sleep. Shane still tells everyone how I fell asleep at the theatre 5 minutes into the movie.
Moral of the story: I had zero interest in that movie. Zero.
To be fair, Shane will watch a movie that I choose from time to time. Even if he has no interest in it he will watch it with me. Then, of course, there are nights we watch a movie that he likes.
But you know what’s awesome? When we can find a movie that we both love. When we can both be excited about watching it. When we can both keep interest through the whole movie.
Living in the Arctic we really don’t have many date night options. Actually…there are no date night things for us to do outside of the house other than go for a walk or drive.
So movie nights are our typical date nights. We’ve watched a lot of movies. So I want to share with you some movies that you will both love.
I can (almost) guarantee that you will both love these movies. A little bit of romance, a lot of comedy. A little bit of suspense, and great story lines.
Disclaimer: some of these movies do have some cursing. Use discretion. Better yet, use a TV G! VidAngel is also a great way to watch these movies with zero cursing.
Here are some date night movies you will both love!
Me Before You is a movie I put off watching for a while. I wasn’t convinced by the previews. But after my friend told me her and her husband both liked it Shane and I tried it out. To my surprise we both really enjoyed this movie!
Mastermind was a movie that we went into with the mindset of “we will see what happens.” We didn’t expect to finish the movie, really. But the more we watched the more we laughed. It was really good! We don’t remember any cursing- I apologize if there is one or two in there. There is one part in the beginning where Kristen Wiig takes her shirt off. Just skip it- you won’t miss anything important. And this was a true story which blew our minds!
Money Pit is another one I didn’t think I’d be interested in. But I love Tom Hanks (who doesn’t?) so I was happy to watch it. It is SO FUNNY. It’s just so funny. Go make a bowl of popcorn and watch it. Again- there is a little bit of cursing so use discretion.
Groundhog Day (Special 15th Anniversary Edition) is a classic. You can’t not like this movie. I don’t know how you cannot like this movie. If you haven’t watched it, definitely add it to your list.
Around The World In 80 Days” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Around the World in 80 Days is one for the whole family but go ahead and use it as a date night movie. It has some romance and A LOT of humor. Shane and I laugh so hard every time we watch this movie.
So there are a few suggestions for your next movie date night in. What are some of your favorite date night movies? Share them with us!
