From guilty pleasures, to cry-fests, to comedic gems, date movies come in all shapes and sizes. These five movies made us laugh, made us sing, made us think, but most of all, they made us believe in love. Check out the top five date movies of 2012 below!
5. Magic Mike
If Hollywood’s biggest leading men stripping to Ginuwine doesn’t make you want to shift a little closer to your date in the theatre, you should probably find someone else to share your popcorn with.
4. This Means War
From the woman who broke up with Jake Gyllenhaal, comes the woman who has to choose between Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. I need to figure out how to Freak-Friday Reese Witherspoon.
3. The Five Year Engagement
Relationships are hard, especially when you have to put your wedding off for five years. From the romantic mind of Jason Segel, The Five Year Engagement shows the ups and downs of balancing careers and love, with a few fart jokes here and there.
2. Silver Linings Playbook
Everyone thinks that Pat (Bradley Cooper) and Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) are crazy, but all we want to know is whether they’re really just crazy for each other. An off-centre romantic comedy, Silver Linings Playbook has scored big this year with critics and viewers.
1. Pitch Perfect
Like Romeo and Juliet, Beca and Jesse are kept apart by rival acapella groups…plus the fact that Beca is in a big emo stage of her life and refuses to admit Jesse is supah fly. Throw in some hilarious scenes with an outstanding cast and a few killer mash-ups and you’ve got a date movie that everyone will love.
