Andy Sidaris always had a bunch of ex-Playmates in his movies. And lots of guns.

WHAT??? Sandra Oh left "Grey's Anatomy???"

Avatar 7:11pm BadGuyZero:

Apology. I'm being a jackass.
Avatar 7:12pm BadGuyZero:

I have never watched that show. The only thing I've seen Sandra Oh in is "Arli$$" and "Sideways."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hoping that Grandma Phyllis is feeling better. Get well soon.

BLERG! I can't call. T-Mobile hasn't sent me a replacement phone yet.
Avatar 7:27pm Callieflower:

I like hearing a lot of calls :)

Fritz the Cat. That scene where they pick up chicks in Washington Square. Yeah.

I can only think of two times in high school that first dates involved going to a movie. They were "Radio Days" and "The Lost Boys."
Avatar 7:32pm Callieflower:

I'm not watching Game of Thrones with a boy, but the rape is still making me uncomfortable
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Nick the Bard:

I had a friendship kind of begin it's end watching Hobo With A Shotgun with someone. We both started out making fun of it, I ended up getting into the movie, she kept trying to riff it, which just got really painful for both of us.

My brother proposed after Lincoln.

“4 score & 7 years ago… Will you be my bride, Baberaham Lincoln?”
Avatar 7:36pm BadGuyZero:

My mom was really insistent that my girlfriend and I should watch "The Devil's Advocate" with her and Dad. Awful movie and one of the worst things you could watch with your parents.
Avatar 7:36pm BadGuyZero:

"Antichrist" is my favorite romantic comedy!
  7:39pm JakeGould:

BGZ: I know a fairly well known indie film reviewer who was (is?) obsessed with "The Devil's Advocate". This reviewer is well respected & it isn’t a guilty pleasure. It’s weird. It’s why I no longer respect certain respected reviewers.

Albert Brooks
Avatar 7:41pm BadGuyZero:

"John & Mary" with Dustin Hoffman and Mia Farrow was pretty much the "Before Sunrise" of the late 60s.
Avatar 7:42pm BadGuyZero:

A lot of those old screwball comedies have really great, strong female characters.
  7:44pm JakeGould:

“A lot of those old screwball comedies have really great, strong female characters.” As long as the ladies are screwball, they get power in those comedies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Nick the Bard:

ok, if you're calling in and just hanging up, KNOCK IT THE HELL OFF ALREADY
Avatar 7:46pm Jeff:

Something which seems like a terrible idea as one of the first movies for a couple to watch together, but which actually worked out pretty well: the (first?) Jackass movie.

Maybe one of things which worked is that the dynamic of choosing the movie was playing against gender stereotypes: I really wasn't at all interested in sitting through it, kind of preciously turned up my nose, thought it was the kind of crudeness I just didn't need. Kathryn rented it anyway, because she thought it'd be fun.

And we both laughed our asses off, in between cringes.

Avatar 7:47pm cosmic matrix:

if watching a movie in bed with a girl is like a date, then "eraserhead"! i made out for the first time...hey why not. eventually, i ended up in film school. then i dropped out!
Avatar 7:49pm BadGuyZero:

My most recent girlfriend and I went to see "Adventureland" on our second date.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Nick the Bard:

but not being really for the sex scenes in the room is most of the fun of it
  7:54pm Cavorting with Nudists:

Thin Man movies are perfect. William Powell is like the Anti-Randy.
Avatar 7:55pm Jeff:

Something which turned out to be a bad pick: "Team America: World Police".

I've long enjoyed the work of those Trey 'n' Matt kids, AND I used to love the Supermarionation shows like Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet as a kid...

But the puppet sex scene TOTALLY creeped Kath out.

Understandably, it was pretty terrible on purpose. But she kept having flashbacks of it surprisingly long.
Avatar 7:59pm BadGuyZero:

Goodnight everyone!

I took a girl to see The Pillow Book (1997). Kinda squirmy.
  2:03pm AV:

was living in a smallish town with exactly one arthouse theater. asked a girl out on a first date. a poet feminist living in a co-op, who i really wanted to impress. i was no intellectual slouch myself, so i knew a blockbuster wouldn't do. so we went to the arthouse. the movie playing was glengarry glen ross. halfway though, she stood up and said under her breath, i'm leaving because there are NO women in this movie. she went to the bathroom and came back, even though she really did want to leave. the walk home discussion floundered around why were there no women in that movie? / well, that movie wasn't about women. there was no second date.
