For this week’s bonus question I asked readers to share their favorite “date movie” – even if they weren’t still dating.
Among the most popular (or at least most cited) movies were:
50 First Dates
The Princess Bride
Sleepless in Seattle
When Harry Met Sally
Others noted were:
Gone with the Wind
On Golden Pond
Return to Me
Roman Holiday from the classic movie pile.
Something About Mary
Stranger Than Fiction is a great date movie...intelligent, sweet and romantic.
The Wedding Date
There were, of course, some fun verbatims (and some interesting back stories) as well:
At this stage of my life following two marriages, one divorce, one death...... I think "It's Complicated" fits!
Anything with Matthew McConaughey; my wife can't get enough of him.
At risk of dating myself, I would have to say, "Say Anything" with John Cussack.
Crossing Delancy (our actual first date). We've been married 20 years on 2/17, so it worked! Good movie too...
I only made out during E.T. BTW, did he get home?
You've Got Mail - Hubby and i met 13 years ago over the Internet. We both still watch this one and smile.
It's a toss between Casablanca and Roman Holiday. And no, I haven't dated for a long time and I don't miss it one bit. I am happily married to a wonderful guy who I've known for almost 30 years.
It's been so long since I've dated, I can't even think of a date movie to name!
“The good, the bad, and the ugly. It's long, so you get to spend more time together, and since the title accurately describes the majority of relationships, I think it's quite apropos”.
But this week’s Editor’s Choice goes to the reader who noted, “Any movie is my favorite when I'm out with my sweetie!”
Thanks to everyone who participated in our bonus survey!
