  6. What an excellent idea! I am a sucker for a stay at home date with The Mr.! Makes it easy to be so cozy, have some toddies, and maximum snuggle time! All and all… a super rad night!

    • So true, like Vin Diesel with A Man Apart and XXX, or Paul Walker with Running Scared and Into the Blue. There are so many great combinations for a fun and entertaining movie night =). Enjoy!

  15. I love your movie duos…in particular The Notebook and A walk to remember. I’ve seen just about everything on your list except Frequency, will check it out! I wish your poll had an option for ‘Romantic-Comedy’, that’s a genre that gets me everytime. Love your blog, by the way and thanks for the follow.

    • That’s awesome! Thanks very much for your feedback, we wanted to keep the poll pretty general, because there can be several movies that mix genres like dramedies and like you said, romantic-comedies. Frequency is an excellent film with Dennis Quad and an early one for Jim Caviezel.Cheers!

  16. Great list of pairs. Was thinking maybe Galaxy Quest and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
