So long Netflix and Chill, four more states have welcomed recreational cannabis and we think the world should take a load off and burn one, Netflix and burn one to be exact. Getting close, or closer, with a special someone is a lot easier in the comfortable and intimate setting of our own living room which is why a movie night is one of the best date nights to add to our repertoire. These movies will enhance a movie night spent with a lover, just don’t forget the herbal refreshments.
5. Leap Year (2010)
Falling into the classic rom-com genre this is a great go-to for a newer couple that can’t decide on a movie because they’re cute and too nervous around each other. The film stars Amy Adams and Matthew Goode as he escorts her across the gorgeous Irish countryside to take part in an obscure Irish tradition. Her plan is to propose to her boyfriend that just happens to be in Ireland on the day of the Leap Year. As her and her escort (Goode) travel she may change how she understands love and partnership, or she may not. The cliff hanger, the sweet anger flirting, and the intertwined love stories all make this a fabulous option for a couple’s night in.
4. Zootopia (2016)
This is one of the new released on Netflix at the moment and it truly is a must watch for anyone who loves family comedy or animation. Zootopia follows along as a little bunny as she defies all odds and becomes a cop. This light, fun movie is such a great choice for a date because we won’t run the risk of crying or getting political. And seriously, what’s better than smoking a blunt and watching a cartoon film!
3. Dope (2015)
Crime and comedy merge in this whirlwind story of three “geek” best friends who get swept up in the Los Angeles drug trade after going to a party that got busted by the police. The three well meaning kids go on an epic adventure through Los Angeles scraping past police and gangsters alike. The film was produced by Forest Whitaker and Pharrell Williams and debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. It is a perfect exciting pick for anyone who loves to stay on their toes.
2. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil
As far as dates go, it’s hard to go wrong with a silly and hilarious movie choice and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is just that. The mock horror film combines slapstick and witty hilarity to knit quite the plot amidst all of the laughs and nonsense. See what happens when everything is taken the wrong way and we guarantee that there will be some laughs shared while any pair takes some time to Netflix and chill.
Ever wondered what happens when an elderly Jewish man and a young Muslim boy work together at a bakery? What if the young boy starts baking all of the goods with cannabis? This movie explores just that and serves and a poignant, witty take on modern society. We laughed, we cried, we couldn’t get enough of this heartfelt dramedy. It is possible that it could give us a good cry so be sure that isn’t a deal breaker on the date before clicking on Dough.
Of course we also love so many other films but these are the hottest on our list for date nights right now. What is your favorite movie to watch with your boo? Do you love to roll a fat one and snuggle up on the couch in the late Fall and Winter? We do!!
