I very rarely watch movies, much less tv these days, most tend to be rather flat, or the messages, quite distorted and not entertaining at all. I’m a tough critic in this area I guess. I’d like to know from you movie buffs, do you have any you recommend watching as a couple, that would be entertaining for both party’s? Something with a Catholic theme would be nice, and it doesn’t have to be something that just hit the box office recently.
“(500) Days of Summer.” Still playing in first-run theatres. It’s a quirky independent comedy about a guy getting over a breakup. Very original, very unpredictable…it’s got a “pro-marriage” message. It is PG-13 for some intermittent suggestive content.
**What makes it suitable for couples? **There are very specific male-perspective and female-perspective elements to the movie. Can’t say any more without spoiling it.
I would bet money you’ll see “(500) Days of Summer” among the Best Picture nominees come Oscar time in March. It’s that good. And, yes, definitely recommended moreso for a couple to see together because of its storyline.
Other posters mentioning animated films reminds me of what a great movie Up is. It made me laugh & cry. It would be great for couples, especially those young-at heart. If you are not feeling young-at-heart, go rent Up. It will make you feel that way!
