When it comes to summer lovin', you want to have a blast. And nothing can get you and your boo into the groove more than seeing some sweet tunes together in concert.

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.
