Now that we’ve taught you how to hit on a girl on an airplane, our next bit of advice revolves around a much more common dating scenario – watching movies. Whether you go to a theater or watch a movie from the comfort of your living room, there are certain movies which you should avoid watching on a date at all costs. To help, we’ve compiled this list of The 9 Most Awkward Movies To Watch On A Date.
9. The Break-Up
No matter how far along you are in a relationship, it’s never a good idea to see this movie. If you and your date are just getting to know each other, this movie will remind you that most relationships end badly. And if you’ve already been together for a while? Then this movie will probably give at least one of you some ideas.
8. The Crying Game
What could possibly be less romantic than spending two hours with a woman who turns out to be a dude? Unless of course that happens to be your thing.
7. War of the Roses
Years before The Breakup came along, Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner took turns torturing each other in this classic 1980s movie. It’s a good movie to see, but not on a date. Save it for after you start to hate the person you’re dating – you’ll appreciate the movie much more then.
6. Birth of a Nation
A silent film that happens to be all about how great the Ku Klux Klan is will not help you get laid…unless you live in Indiana, in which case it unfortunately might.
5. Anything starring Kirk Cameron
We have no idea if Kirk Cameron’s latest string of movies even get released in theaters, but if they do you probably want to avoid them on your next date. Two hours of the guy who used to pal around with somebody named Boner on Growing Pains preaching about Jesus and abstinence isn’t conducive to you getting any action on your date. Speaking of Jesus, don’t ever take a date to see…
4. The Passion of the Christ
Scoring with a date you’ve taken to see a Kirk Cameron movie would be easy compared to trying to get some action after seeing The Passion. Nobody’s going to be in the mood to sin after watching this.
3. Schindler’s List
Holocaust movies have never helped anybody get laid. Except Roberto Benigni.
2. Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie
If you take a girl on a date to see this movie, she will sneak out of the theater, run to the nearest police station, and report you. And she should.
1. The Accused
We imagine some poor guy out there has invited a girl over to watch a movie at his place, flipped through the channels and stopped on this drama starring Jodie Foster figuring that he can’t go wrong. Then, the brutal gang rape scene comes on and he realizes he’s made a horrible mistake. Don’t be that guy.
