Top 10 Date Movies Of 2009

best date movies of the year

These past 12 months, we've found ourselves spending more money on overpriced movie tickets than we have in years. Now, as these movies are slated to start appearing on DVD, we're itching to watch them again, this time cozied up on the couch with our best guy or gal. The Truth About Date Movies
 
1. Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince
We've waited with bated breath for every single Harry Potter flick. This past year's finally rewarded us with some romance, the most anticipated of which was the blossoming relationship between Ron and Hermione. And, um, Harry Potter doesn't look too bad himself (have you seen pics of Daniel Radcliffe in Equus?). It makes our hearts ache to know that the series is almost at an end. 8 Harry Potter Tools We Want For Our Relationships
 
2. The Proposal
Honey, would you pull a Ryan Reynolds and marry me so I don't have to go back to Canada? And, in the process, could you also work on duplicating his ab muscles? Okthxbai.
 
3. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
You got your dose of romance in The Proposal. No it's time to revel in the explosion-heavy action of Transformers and drool over Megan Fox.
 
4. Up
This movie made us cry. Multiple times. This Pixar/Disney film tells the tale of a man in the twilight of his life, who's content to be grumpy and mourn his late wife. When he finally decides to fulfill a dream the two of them once had to travel to a lost world, we're treated to a dazzling animated display, accompanied by a heartwarming story of love and redemption.
 
5. Time Traveler's Wife
This movie will leave you feeling grateful that you have a man who doesn't leave for popcorn and return in a few days looking a few years different.
 
6. Paranormal Activity
If you need an excuse to hold on tightly to your main man, watch this together (that is if he isn't already cowering into your shoulder). Hailed as the second coming of The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity is filmed to allow for the optimal amount of terror. The both of you are sure to have a screamingly good time. 5 Horror Movies To Watch On A Date

7. Watchmen
Comic books aren't just for men. And the popularity of this comic-based film among female audiences proves it. Watchmen features a great script and even better acting, centered around a tale of superheroes gone bad. Not only is it action-packed, it also boasts style and huge amounts of sex appeal.
 
8. 500 Days of Summer
Quirky heartthrobs Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt—crushed on hard-core by hipsters everywhere—charmingly illustrate the complications inherent in trying to make a relationship work. Dotted with an indie-precious soundtrack and some musical-esque dance moves, this movie inspires a number of thought-provoking questions about the nature of love.

9. Inglourious Basterds
Nobody does epic, gratuitous violence like Quentin Tarantino, but Inglourious Basterds is more than just an action-packed fantasy of Jewish revenge. Let's not overlook the number very sexy men in the cast, including Brad Pitt (in yet another comedic turn) and a buffed-up Eli Roth. (And Eli Roth's chest hair.) Would You Marry Into A Hairy Situation?
 
10. I Love You, Man
If the two of you are looking for a light, mindless comedy, I Love You, Man delivers in spades, with a bromance between Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, two men that everyone can unabashedly love. The 10 Funniest Guys Who Are Actually Hot
