Fun Summer Movies!

I was trying to think of all the things that make me think of Summer! I already gave you my list of favorite summer cocktails, so I thought it was very fitting to do a list of fun summer movies to go along with those cocktails! So, after you are too tired from the pool, and the kids are in bed, pop that popcorn, grab that drink and enjoy!

National Lampoon's Vacation!

Every summer the Griswold Family goes on a little trip. This was the summer cross-country drive to Walley World theme park. There are so many hilarious twists and turns that make you happy you didn't travel the country with them!


This is a Bill Murray movie so you know it will be funny. This is a movie about summer camp where hijinks's are inevitable!

Indian Summer!

Indian Summer is a story about adults who return to their childhood Camp Tamakwa to save it from being shut down. For anyone who has been to summer camp as a kid, this is a fun movie and will definitely bring back memories of your youth!

Endless Summer!

1968 Movie about two young surfers who go searching for the perfect wave around the world!


Dudley Moore's character sees an attractive beach babe played by Bo Derek and then follows her to Mexico! I'm not a huge fan of Moore's but still, it's a classic and many laughs!


On the beach in Atlantic City, 11 year old CC Bloom and 11 year old Hillary Whitney strike up a friendship that will endure through life's many obstacles. Fantastic must see movie!

One Crazy Summer!

One Crazy Summer was the second film that made John Cusack a heartthrob with the ability to make you laugh. Remember him in Better Off Dead, I still laugh when I see that one! Cusack's character heads off with his buddy to Nantucket Island to get away from his love forsaken life. There, he meets Moore, a raspy singer who is trying to regain control of her grandfather's home. Not as funny as Better Off Dead, but if you love John Cusack like I do, its a must see comedy.

Weekend at Bernie's!

Two goofy nerds try to pretend their murdered employer is still alive but still try to keep him away from the murderer! Kind of a stupid movie that just makes you laugh!

Happy Relaxing!

When my son was young, he LOVED the movie "Weekend at Bernie's". We watched that movie maybe a thousand times. I haven't thought of it in years. Funny

Ms. Bake-it said...

I recently watched Beaches. I had forgotten about some of the other movies. I saved the list and will add them to my summertime list of things to do.
