On release from tomorrow, Edgar Wright's candy-coloured, finger-popping Baby Driver turns the classic car chase movie on its head. Here's why it's your ideal 'Wednesdate' movie.
1. It's the coolest film of the summer
With its snappy soundtrack and indie chic good looks, Wright's latest movie calls to mind both his classic Cornetto trilogy and his cult favourite Scott Pilgrim vs the World. Do you really want to miss out on the movie everybody will be talking about?
2. It's not just a car chase movie...
Don't be fooled by the trailers. Although there's more than enough tyre-screeching action to suit car chase fans, the movie also mashes up musical sequences and gentle romantic comedy as our title character Baby (Ansel Elgort) relies on his playlist to be the best driver in the business.
If you often struggle to find a movie that you can both enjoy together, this will hit the sweet spot.
3. It'll change your life
Well, that may be overstating it. But it will offer you a host of new and classic songs to explore and share in together, whether it's Carla Thomas' swinging 'B-A-B'Y' or Danger Mouse's single 'Chase Me', written specially for the movie.
This isn't just a movie experience: the impact of the film will continue long after the credits roll.
4. It's the perfect movie for uber-nerds
Are you both complete geeks? Then this movie will powerslide right into your heart. After all, nerd directors don't get more loveable than Edgar Wright, the man who invented the rom-zom-com with Shaun of the Dead and who rendered the awesomely hilarious video game fights in Scott Pilgrim.
Own the geekiness: go and see Baby Driver together and revel in the fact that this is the movie for you.
5. The experience doesn't end with the film!
Extend your evening and chew over the experience of the movie at Frankie and Benny's, Chiquitos and Pizza Hut. All the better for discussing that all-important question: when will Hot Fuzz 2 happen?
