A first date movie isn't always the best you'll ever see.
In fact, it can be pretty awful and awkward for all parties concerned. Some people end up seeing movies like 'The Pianist' or 'Shame' on a first date. Others see relatively safe ones like 'When Harry Met Sally' or 'The Notebook'.
These examples, however, are some of the worst.
Take a look.
I know a lad who put on Song for a Raggy Boy with a girl cause he had it borrowed from a friend and the date was going flat and he "needed something to put on"

Requiem for a Dream. Second date, in his gaff and we were 18. To make matters worse, his housemate and some girl were having loud, awkward protracted sex upstairs. There was no third date.

A friend of mine went to see "we need to talk about Kevin" on a date because he hadn't read the book and just assumed it was a Sandler esque comedy.

Tony Manero! Its combination of surprise violence and cringe comedy sex scenes made it not the perfect 2nd date movie.

9 Songs. Ended up getting married years later, so it worked out eventually!

Haneke’s The Piano Teacher. Rented it out with then GF- a random choice. Bad idea. Also went on a blind date once to see Nanni Moretti’s The Son’s Room, which got things off to a very jolly start.

A history of violence.
It was the only thing worth seeing that week and that suited time wise.
