When you’ve been with the same partner for a long time, date nights become obligatory events to keep the spice alive — whatever that means. It usually entails getting dressed up, putting some makeup on and spending entirely too much on a meal out. This Friday night, why don’t you and your partner put on your comfiest pair of sweats and make some popcorn. If you’re feeling especially wild, pop the cork on a new bottle of wine and turn on one of these five movies that are sure to spice up your date night in.
1. Crazy, Stupid, Love
Any movie with Ryan Gosling is sure to get your blood pumping and your senses in tune. Your husband won’t even realize you’re only in the mood because of Gosling’s wonderful fashion sense and appeal. And, that famous Dirty Dancing jump? Sigh.
2. Pretty Woman
Who doesn’t love the romantic story of an escort turned girlfriend of a rich businessman? Pretty Woman is a classic movie that will entertain both of you for the entire 2 hours and 5 minutes.
3. Old School
Every married or committed partner has wondered “what if?” What if you had married your high school sweetheart? What if you hadn’t gotten knocked up in college? Old School will let you relive those what-ifs, making you (hopefully) realize you have everything you want sitting on the couch next to you. What’s more romantic than that?
4. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Everyone loves a woman scorned. Sarah Marshall is the perfect villain that you’ll love to hate. This romantic comedy will bring you together in humor and romance.
5. Mr. & Mrs. Smith
What’s hotter than a bad ass assassin husband and wife team? Nothing, especially when that team is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie! It has guns, action, and humor. This movie will get you feeling feisty, passionate and ready for whatever the night has to bring.
