User Reviews

I thought this movie was pretty funny.
8 February 2008 | by dobbin-4See all my reviews

Date movie is the first of three(so far) spoof movies that 2 out of 6 of the writers from the scary movies wrote. This one is probably the funniest of them with its obvious references to the past 10 years or so of romance comedies that have graced and disgraced out screen. The story is about Julia Jones a lonely girl who just wants the perfect romance but her father wants hr to marry a Chinese-German Jew or something like that. She then meets the love of her life and all is well until his ex fiancée comes into the picture. I recommend this film over Epic Movie and Meet The Spartans for it is funny and direct but they still can not get away from thinking that dancing from famous characters is really funny. Oh well just watch this movie and TRY NOT to think for a change is that too hard.
