Awkward First-Date Movies

Sort by: Showing 25 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 233 Average listal rating (76 ratings) 8.5 IMDB Rating 8.6
Shoah (1986)
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.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 675 Average listal rating (418 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.3
This one might have your date questioning your every move and, for their paranoid safety, might not answer that call for a second date.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 515 Average listal rating (258 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.3
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.

People who added this item 935 Average listal rating (554 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.9
Infidelity, psychotic reactions to being ignored, dead bunnies... not a recipe for a successful first date.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 1489 Average listal rating (892 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.4
Irreversible (2002)
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.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 451 Average listal rating (178 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.5
Satantango (1994)
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.

People who added this item 166 Average listal rating (115 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.3
A painful movie, but not as painful, for you, as losing that second date.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 1383 Average listal rating (792 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.6
Funny Games (1997)
Does your date love killing people for no apparent reason? If not, no second date for you.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 800 Average listal rating (427 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.2
Uncomfortable in every way... and I saw this one alone and it made me want to leave the room from me.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 1952 Average listal rating (1155 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.8
Well... it's called the break-up, plus it's not very good.

People who added this item 1813 Average listal rating (1189 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 5.9
Hostel (2006)
Your date might be turned off by pretty much everything from this movie.
lalaman's rating:
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?
People who added this item 1578 Average listal rating (923 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 6.6
Antichrist (2009)
There might be a select few who get turned on by this movie... I hope they find each other, or God help us all.

People who added this item 1395 Average listal rating (827 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.4
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.

Nothing needs to be said here...
People who added this item 250 Average listal rating (140 ratings) 5.1 IMDB Rating 5.7
Unless you're related to Jim Varney your date might find this to a very stupid choice for a movie on a first date.
People who added this item 1158 Average listal rating (708 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.8
A classic divorce movie, ah yes... says romance on a bright future all over!

People who added this item 210 Average listal rating (142 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 6.8
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.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 1065 Average listal rating (580 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7
A strange choice and awkward moments aplenty for you and your date.

People who added this item 1389 Average listal rating (860 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.2
Shame (2011)
You might be sweating for this to get better as it crawls along... sorry, it doesn't.

Sex can obviously be a big turn on... but this is not a sexy movie.
Same can be said to II, too.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 727 Average listal rating (416 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 8.1
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.
lalaman's rating:
People who added this item 357 Average listal rating (218 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 6.2
Nicholas Sparks movie? Not a bad choice for a date; but this one starts off depressing and only gets more depressing from there.

People who added this item 5802 Average listal rating (3666 ratings) 8.4 IMDB Rating 8.9
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!
lalaman's rating:

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...
