Everyone has a different idea of their ideal summer.
Maybe it's spending all of your free time with your toes in the sand and a watermelon mojito in hand or hitting up a music festival in a fun city. Or, maybe, summer means an excess of free time: The three months of the year when things are just slightly more lax, and you can be less about work and more about play. No matter how you spend the hotter days of the year, it's always fun to take a peek at how others enjoy their own sunny days.
Plus there's something about summer movies that just feels...well, a little more fun than their fall peers. Above all, that's what summer is — a time when the fun is cranked up a notch. Have air conditioning? Spend a few summer nights watching these summer classics. They may not beat a trip to the beach, but they're certainly the next best thing.
