Help us plan our themed date nights!

On Wednesdays Mr. Pterodactyl and I have date nights with dinner and a movie. We like to make some food and watch a movie that ties in to it in some way, however tenuous. Help us plan our future romantic engagements!

We need combinations of yummy food and enjoyable movies with some kind of relationship, even if it's sort of made up (for example, tapas and The Princess Bride because Inigo's Spanish). Last week we ate Ethopian food and watched The Lion King and this week we're going to watch The Sound of Music and eat fondue. What are other pairs that would work well?
Pleasant and generally happy
Ideally at least a little funny
It doesn't have to be super romantic but it can be
Must be available to either through streaming Netflix or to rent off of Amazon instant video
Things that work well: Pixar stuff, musicals, anything with Muppets. Stuff like Pretty Woman or Audrey Hepburn movies would also be good.
No seafood (I have an allergy)
Ideally something we can make ourselves that is a little more special than regular weeknight food
Not too expensive but we are a bit flexible on this
Things that are good: Ethiopian food (beef tibs, sambusas, and injera), tapas, fondue -- these all involve some activity beyond just "regular" eating, like using the injera, dipping stuff in the fondue, selecting tapas
Any ideas that fit into this are welcome, we're just hoping for ideas that have a theme and allow us to eat something yummy and snuggle. Thank you so much for any combination food/movie suggestions you can make!
