Awkward First-Date Movies
Sort by: Showing 25 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
Very long and very deep-hitting and emotional and sad and heart-wrenching. As incredible of a movie as this is... you might not get a second date.
Sleeping with the Enemy (1991)
This one might have your date questioning your every move and, for their paranoid safety, might not answer that call for a second date.
The Birth of a Nation (1915)
Unless your date supports US Reconstruction and the advent of the KKK... and silent movies... and very long silent movies... and naps... you might have a tough time scoring a second date.
Fatal Attraction (1987)
Infidelity, psychotic reactions to being ignored, dead bunnies... not a recipe for a successful first date.
Gaspar Noe demands way too much from his audience and, until the very end there is nothing pleasant or romantic about this movie, and at the end you have seen all the shit beforehand so it's still unsettling.
Incredible imagery... and incredibly long. Unless they love it so much you stop to make out in the middle of it and schedule a second date to finish... uhhh, that's not going to happen, sorry.
A painful movie, but not as painful, for you, as losing that second date.
Funny Games (1997)
Does your date love killing people for no apparent reason? If not, no second date for you.
Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989)
Uncomfortable in every way... and I saw this one alone and it made me want to leave the room from me.
The Break-Up (2006)
Well... it's called the break-up, plus it's not very good.
Your date might be turned off by pretty much everything from this movie.
If you're an adult suggesting to go see this movie, they might think you're fucking weird... so maybe you won't even get that first date?
There might be a select few who get turned on by this movie... I hope they find each other, or God help us all.
Blue Valentine (2010)
Possibly the most beautiful but depressing movie on this list. If you watch only the first half of this movie your chances of getting a second date are much greater, otherwise that post-movie-talk is going to be pretty awkward.
The Human Centipede (2009) (2010)
Nothing needs to be said here...
Ernest Scared Stupid (1991)
Unless you're related to Jim Varney your date might find this to a very stupid choice for a movie on a first date.
Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)
A classic divorce movie, ah yes... says romance on a bright future all over!
The House That Jack Built (2018)
You might have to do some serious explaining as to why you were even interested in such a fucked-up journey into madness... and if you're able to explain... they probably won't answer that phone anyway.
Gone Girl (2014)
This isn't entirely a bad movie to watch on the first date as long as your mutual plans are to end it quickly.
Last Tango in Paris (1972)
A strange choice and awkward moments aplenty for you and your date.
You might be sweating for this to get better as it crawls along... sorry, it doesn't.
Nymphomaniac: Vol. I (2013)
Sex can obviously be a big turn on... but this is not a sexy movie.
Same can be said to II, too.
Same can be said to II, too.
The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928)
Silent movie might not be a date killer, but one that consists of hours of interrogation, torture and burning a saint alive... total date killer.
Message in a Bottle (1999)
Nicholas Sparks movie? Not a bad choice for a date; but this one starts off depressing and only gets more depressing from there.
Schindler's List (1993)
One of my all time favorite movies and it's one I would eventually watch with my gal, but never ever on a first date!
I just made the mistake of watching "John Wick 3" on a first date. While it is a good movie it is definitely NOT a date movie, haha. It got me thinking of what would be the worst choices for a first-date movie throughout the history of film.
I am sure there are plenty more, but here are 25 for starters...
