Friday's Films - Date night advice

This one's some advice for the guys.
Your girl wants to see a movie, or your planning a first date. But honestly have you seen the cost of a movie, plus popcorn and a soda?
So here's a suggestion, consider a classic movie from our dvd collection. We have everything from Jane Austen to Star Wars. (I wouldn't recommend Star Wars or Indiana Jones for a first date movie, but you never know she may be into that.)
So here's what you do:
  • Clean your apartment
  • Invite her over
  • Make some popcorn
  • And let her pick from 2-3 movies that you checked out for free from the library
Giving her the choice takes the pressure off you. You can cuddle on the couch and she'll be touched that you went to the trouble.

Some of my favorite recommends are:
Giant - epic story about a Texas ranch family, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson
Gigi - musical about a girl growing up in Paris who longs for a man who can't see her
Great Expectations - yes, the book made into a movie with great costumes and very good acting
Jane Eyre - classic about love, betrayal and forgiveness.
My Fair Lady - Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins, music and great costumes
Oklahoma - Hugh Jackman as Curly (need I say more)
The Producers - Gene Wilder and Dick Shawn in the original movie version about two producers who set out to create a flop and fail
