The Perfect Summer Movie Date Night with ‘The Longest Ride’

Review copy/date night kit received


When was the last time that you had a date night? For the longest time, my husband and I would rarely have a date night.

First, because it is so expensive.
Second, because it was always a challenge to find a babysitter.

Finally, we were determined to get creative and started have “at home” date nights just like our recent “The Longest Ride” date night.


During the summer, our kids always seem to be up late playing with their friends, and it has been harder than ever to plan a movie date night at home. I finally decided that I was just going to have to commit to making it happen and get the kids ready for bed early on Sunday evening.


Once the kids were asleep, we popped some Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn, seasoned it to perfection with Kernel Season’s, and then started to watch “The Longest Ride” together. The movie is based on one of my favorite novels by Nicholas Sparks ‘The Choice.’ Whenever a New York Times Bestselling novel is turned into a film, I always worry if it will be as good as the book. This film is not only as good as the book, but I fell in love with the movie just like I did when reading the book.


“The Longest Ride” made for the perfect movie date night, and we will continue to enjoy watching this heartwarming movie for many years to come. If you’re in need of a summer date night, rent the film “The Longest Ride” and have a perfect romantic summer date night with the one you love.
