The 13 Worst Movies to Watch on a Date [Dude’s List]

Last time on the Dude’s List, I tackled the best movies to watch on a date. After much heated debate and backlash and flagellating, I came to, I suppose the inevitable, conclusion that this issue needed to be represented on both sides of the cultural aisle. A great movie sharing experience can enhance a date, provide it with chitchat fuel but also set the tone for the rest of the evening, assuming there will be a rest of the evening. In all the ways the right movie can help, the wrong movie can decimate.

Tingling feeling? Erased. Conversation that turns into insult spewing. Sexy vibes that die down into a cacophony of awkwardness. In other words, the wrong movie can make for a wretched date which can lead to a very lonely night and nip a hopeful encounter in the bud. Here are 13 movies to avoid watching on your date.

There you have ‘em, 13 cinematic…whatevers that you shouldn’t bring with you onto a first date. Avoid like you Ex-File and the fact you only cut your toenails once every 6 weeks. Now, granted, I suppose arguments might could sorta be made for the majority of these films. We do have to take it on a case by case basis after all. Could you counter me? What movies would make your list? Oh, I should qualify, all these movies might have counterarguments except The Human Centipede. F*CK THAT!

    On my first date with my first college boyfriend, we went to go see the remake of Last House on the Left. WE were both horror buffs. The gruesome rape scene made the entire evening THE MOST AWKWARD THING THAT I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.

      The remake will never compare to the original *shudders* I watched the original with my mom, talk about awkward.
