Drummond says she and her husband, Ladd Drummond, enjoy watching movies during date night. In an issue of The Pioneer Woman, a reader asked her about how she and Ladd spend their nights together. She said that she and Ladd usually go out to see a movie.

“We love to watch movies together,” says Drummond. “But because the closest theater is about 50 minutes from our house, we usually only go out to see epic ones, like ‘Aquaman’ or something from Marvel. Ladd and I will split a popcorn and a regular Coke—it’s the one time I drink it! (Yes, he loves Dr Pepper, but only in a can!)”

When it comes to her favorite movies, Drummond loves a film starring Ben Affleck. She shared on her blog that one of her favorite movies is The Town.

The Town stars Affleck, Jeremy Renner, and Rebecca Hall. It was released September 17, 2010. Drummond describes The Town as “the best Boston crime movie ever.” She likes how the movie makes her feel like she’s in the middle of the action. “This is one of those tricky movies where you sort of pull for the criminal, but only because he wants out of that life,” says Drummond on her website.

Ree Drummond explains why she loves some movies so much

Drummond says some of her favorite movies have had a significant impact on her. They remind her of good times in her life. Some of the movies she loves just because of the acting.

“The movies on this list are ones that have made a lasting impression on me, either in subject matter, storyline, or acting,” says Drummond on her website. “These aren’t simply movies I love watching, because if that were the case, I would have a hundred more on the list. No, the movies on this list are, to me, truly great movies that I will drop everything to watch, and that I could watch over and over and over, time and time again, and never get burned out or bored.”
