“An action comedy that follows in the footsteps of movies like Date Night, and Game Night and comes out being something uniquely its own. The film follows a first date that teens Mike and Kelsey will never forget. It begins when the shy boy bumbles into promising to pick the cool girl up for a Friday night out. There’s just one problem: he doesn’t have a car. In a frenzy to not mess this up, Mike buys a battered ‘65 Chrysler from a shady character. So begins a comedy of errors that will collide into car chases, crooked cops, dangerous drug dealers, and the world’s most violent book club… a jolting thrill ride, packed with barbed jokes, hilarious characters, and threaded with a sweet and simple romance… First Date is a diamond in the rough, but a diamond nonetheless.” – Kristy Puchko, RogerEbert.com
