THE DATE MOVIE
When in Rome, Dear John, Couples Retreat, Did You Hear About the Morgans, Leap Year, Valentine's Day, New Moon--these are some of the date movies that have been foisted off on us recently. Mostly movies with lackluster plots and crummy production values.
Look at what we had in the past on the video above. So many of these older movies had sizzling dialogue. Now the words sit there like week-old bread. There is no creative investment in them.
Is the date movie now the equivalent of the reality show? Cheap and generic. What was the last good date movie you saw? I can't remember any recently so help me out.
