You're being kind. . although I did watch some that were worse. . like Sand Sharks and "Super Shark". . my niece called me and was laughing so hard about them. . I decided to take a quick glimpse. . OMG SyFy can really scrape the bottom.. It was really strange seeing JJ from "Good Times" and Jon Schneider, from the original "Dukes of Hazzard". . wow!It was bad.
The movie's a blast and if your date doesn't want to see it then you're quite right in suggesting finding a better one.Having now seen Pacific Rim I can say I call it the date movie of the year.
Unless your date is not into Kaiju and Giant fighting robots.
In which case find a better date.
