The best (and probably worst) dates ever in movie history

Love is in the air and whether you’re the type of person who swats at it like a mosquito or stares at it like a beautiful butterfly, you’ve gotta at least admire the amount of effort that goes into good dates. 

To celebrate the fact that some people SERIOUSLY go hard, we’re rating our favourite date scenes from films… and comparing them to the dates that make you feel like the ones you’ve been on weren’t all that bad…

Lady and the Tramp

OUR RATING

1000/10

WHY?

Free food under the stars? Live music with an Italian singer? A moonlit walk around town? Spaghetti and a cheeky snog? Hello?! Someone call 999 ‘cause our heart is about to burst out of our chest.

Blind Date

OUR RATING

0/10

WHY?

If you thought your dating life was in shambles, at least you’ve never ended the night in prison… and if you have, we hope it was at least for something a bit more fun than this. This date gets a 0 purely because someone’s ex showed up, but don’t even get us started on being stuck with someone who’s probably trying to get you killed. #Yikes #DontWorryWeWillProtectYouBruceWillis 

La La Land

OUR RATING

12/10

WHY?

We’re pretty sure it doesn’t get any more romantic than having a starlit observatory that defies gravity ALL to yourselves. If Ryan Gosling wants to throw us up into the air during a dance number then he totally can. We’d float too.

Carrie

OUR RATING

-900 TRILLION MILLION JILLION/10

WHY?

Getting roped into taking your cousin to a dance is one thing… but this takes traumatic prom events to a whole new level. Betrayal? Check. Pig blood? Check. Fire? Check. Murder?! Check, check, CHECK.

White Chicks

OUR RATING

4/10

WHY?

So while we ARE 100% against going on a date with someone who doesn’t know that you’re basically committing identity theft and being pretty creepy, we’re NOT 100% against someone who will let us order 50 different dishes, happily watch us stuff our face, and then be super chill about us unbuttoning our trousers in public. Where do we sign up?! Also, there was a dog present. That automatically adds some points.

Kal Ho Naa Ho

OUR RATING

10/10

WHY?

Find you someone who is literally just ready at any point to gather loads of people in the name of singing you a song about how pretty you are. We want the dancers, the balloons, the bubbles, the guitarists who are somehow playing electric guitars while not plugged into anything (seriously, the GIF doesn’t do it justice, just watch the whole thing!), the dreamy hunk who just won’t stop complimenting us… 

Tip: Stop watching the movie after the pretty woman scene ‘cause it’s just downhill from there… (the title translates to ‘Tomorrow May Never Come’. So. Yeah.)

Kill Bill 

OUR RATING

-500/10

WHY?

Listen. A wedding is the ULTIMATE date. The last thing you want to happen is for a bunch of people to die. A stain on your outfit is one thing, a power outage is another, and laying on the floor dying is a whoooooole other thing. All she wanted was a cute wedding but she ended up having to travel the world for revenge. Actual nightmare. Repeat after us: She. Deserved. Better!

Pretty in Pink

OUR RATING

JohnHughesKnewWhatHeWasDoing/10

WHY?

The final prom scene is everything everyone always hoped their prom would be. Worried about how you’ll look? No need! Coming alone? You’ll find love! Don’t think you’ll have any fun? Oh, please. Also, waiters?! Duckie and Duckette are instant goals and it literally doesn’t get more teen-romance than this.
