Is Cowboys & Aliens A Date Movie?

The summer film season is in high swing. The latest movie is Cowboys & Aliens. Director Jon Favreau teams up with Daniel Craig with Harrison Ford for some Western/sci-fi action. Tough guys talk tough, Native Americans get wise and aliens run amok. The flick is destined to be a box office success, but is it a date movie?

YourTango Takes Crystal Light On A Date

It's hard to stay healthy when you lead a busy lifestyle, and having a quick soda serves as a much-needed energy boost. But a recent study from the University of Texas reports that people who drink two or more diet sodas a day have waists that are six times as large as those who don't drink diet soda at all. This goes to show that a good alternative to the fizzy drink can go a long way.

Best Summer Date Ideas: Movie Dates

The summer movie season isn't all about giant robots, super heroes, and making things go "BOOM" really loudly. There's also a little thing known as "counter-programming," where smaller, more intimate flicks vie for an audience's attention in the hopes of getting some of that blockbuster runoff. The big action tentpoles may get dudes into theaters, but it's the gentle jabs of their girlfriend's elbows that get them settling in for a nice, romantic date movie. While many of these kinds of films carry the stigma of pandering solely to female viewers and their begrudging boyfriends, we've compiled an eclectic list of this summer's most promising date movies, with a little something for everyone.
