Top 10 Movies About Summer

After a freak rain storm last week, temperatures have been in the 90's and I would say summer is officially here in Northern California.  I have a little tradition that takes place on the first really hot day of summer...I watch the movie Weekend at Bernies.  I don't know why I started this, but I have been doing it for years.  Actually, I only watch this movie in the summer time and it is usually retired around the end of September.  It sounds silly, but it's fun to have the tradition and it makes watching the movie special. 

After watching Weekend at Bernies a couple weeks ago as we "welcomed" 100 degree heat, Ethan and I got to discussing other fun movies to watch in the summer time.  So, I decided to come up with a top 10 list for summer movies.  The basis for this list is the movie has to take place in the summer time or represent the summer in some way: last day of school, summer vacation, summer camp, etc.

10. Stand By Me
9. Can't Hardly Wait
8. Meatballs
7. Now & Then
6. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
5. The Parent Trap
4. What About Bob?
3. Superbad
2. One Crazy Summer
1. Weekend at Berines

Happy summer. 


  1. Good list of summer movies. I've watched & enjoyed all except #s 3 & 4. I could replace them with Summer School & Indian Summer. ;-)

  2. Great picks, especially #s 10, 4 and 1. "What about Bob?" takes place on lake Winnipesaukee in my hometown in NH (although not filmed there). Weekend at Bernies is a big hit in our house too :-)
