Never Seen Star Wars Movies

Start with Return of the Jedi. It's got fuzzy creatures, adventure and romance, plus a happy ending. She won't be surprised by any of the twists in earlier movies, but there's value in going back and watching things unfold that you already know a little about - it's what makes prequels so appealing. And if she doesn't like it, at least she'll know how it ends.

When It's just "anybody" It could go either way. If they're into Sci-Fi start with the originals, so the flashy effects aren't the only thing keeping them interested. If they're not into Sci-fi start with the prequels, If nothing else they'll appreciate the effects.

But for a girlfriend who's never seen them, and with Episode 1 In theaters In 3D... Do the math.
Seriously just take her to see Episode 1. If she likes it, awesome. If not, at least you enjoyed It, and you got a nice day out with the lady friend.

My sister asked this same question of me with regard to my 3 year old nephew. When he turns 6 or so we are going to show him the Star Wars movies, one at a time. BTW she is under strict orders not to allow him to see them without me. Anyway she asked the same thing, which one first?

I think this is a no-brainer. You watch them in RELEASE order, not "saga" order. All the important explanations take place in IV, not I. Without it one would be left not really knowing what the heck "The Force" is for 3 movies, because it's not explained anywhere except when Ben does it (and Yoda reinforces in ESB).

So, show her IV, V, VI. If she loves them and wants to watch the rest, then show her the prequels in I-II-III order.

Now mind you, once you've seen them all, I find it quite fun to change things up and do them in "saga order" starting with TPM. But I would never show them to someone in that order for the first time.

The proper way to watch the movies (including Prequels), is 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, 6.

Trust me, this is the ideal way to watch them all.

Pretty much what everyone else said. IV,V,VI. But rember show the originals not the remade versons. Han shot first, Vader didn't say no before thowing the emperor and Luke did not see Hayden Christensen as a force ghost.

wait wait... did you mean won't or want? .... cause if was the former then I have to ask why you care what your g/f thinks well about anything at all... or why you even have one in the first place for that matter...
