With summer officially in full swing, my favorite thing to do is sit down and watch the best summer movies I can find. When it’s all about swimming, camping, going on road trips, and staying up late, almost every summertime movie has its good points. I was always afraid that, once I grew up, summer wouldn’t excite me as much as it did when I was a kid. I’m glad I was wrong! I adore summer, and the following list of the best summer movies out there makes me love it even more!
1. Dirty Dancing
Price: $9.07 at amazon.com
I think this is definitely one of the best summer movies of all time. It’s all about summer romance – what could be better than that? I’m including it rather than, say, Grease, because in Grease, there was only a small snippet about summer at the beginning. Baby and Johnny fall in love right in the heart of summer, amidst a lot of steamy dance numbers.
