Ordinary Days is a really great date musical that strikes a good balance. It’s a current romantic comedy with enough humanity to bring the whole thing home with heart. I believe in it.
I think the best and worst romantic film is Titanic. It’s such an epic film with an amazing love story; however, after the movie you wonder if true love can only last for three days and if it must end at the bottom of the ocean. What if the only way to get over your past love is to throw a huge diamond in the ocean? I know some people who would have liked that diamond, Rose. Not cool.
The best show for a date is obviously Ordinary Days. At the end of the day life and relationships are about the people you surround yourselves with and being open to the truth that we are all connected in strange and glorious ways. This show makes you laugh, appreciate the simple things in life and awakens a sense within that we are a part of a bigger picture. In the end, people are at peace with where they are right now. They are happy living in the moment they are in.
I think the worst show for a date (even though it’s my favourite) would be The Last Five Years. You talk about filling your head with doubt before you even get the relationship started! Here’s a story about a five year relationship where they meet, date, get married and the relationship ends before your eyes in ninety minutes. Post show conversation could include an awkward…”So…did you want to go out again next week?” Ha.
