Top 5 Tuesday: Summer Movies

Top 5 Tuesday is back! With the summer solstice upon us (wait, was it yesterday?) it’s officially movie watching season. I have to be honest, I’m terrible at watching movies at home. I get distracted by tasks I need to complete, my phone, the cat, etc. However, the movies listed below are the best to watch over and over on hot summer evenings. Actually, these are also my top 5 sleepover movies. They’re extremely girl-centric and none of them are summer blockbusters, but they’re my favorites!
5. Greasesummer5 “Summer lovin, had me a blast!”
Even though I’m not a huge musical fan, I absolutely love Grease. I spent many summer nights staying up late and watching Grease with my friends. Frenchy has always been my favorite, obviously for her pink hair and yellow prom dress.
4. Troop Beverly Hills
summer4 Phyllis Nefler is a goddess!
3. Now and Then MSDNOAN EC004 The amount of love I have in my heart for Now and Then is equal to the amount of hate Ray has in his heart for it. Lol.
2. The Babysitter’s Club

summer3 Honestly, The Babysitter’s Club is an extremely under rated summer movie. It’s fun and silly with the slightest hint of emotion.
1.The Parent Trap (starring Haley Mills and Haley Mills)summer2My all time favorite summer movie!! I can watch the Parent Trap all day and all night!

What are your top summer movies to watch?

Well, it’s officially summer which means hiding inside with the AC on (I mean, I do live in Florida), swimming in the springs, iced coffee and movie nights! Here are my top ten favorite summertime movies!

10. Wet Hot American Summer – Dirty, ridiculous summer camp. Also, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd pre Parks and Rec.
9. The Baby Sitters Club – An obvious choice for anyone who read the series OR spent majority of their summers babysitting.
8. It Takes Two – Yall, I will always love a Mary-Kate and Ashley movie… especially if it’s dealing with mistaken identity.
7. Troop Beverly Hills – Beverly Hills, what a thrill.
6. Jaws – Classic. Self explanatory.
5. Hook – Part of this movie actually takes place in London in the winter… but I don’t care. Neverland is a summer-y place and I love it.
4. Jurassic Park – Another summer classic. Can we take a moment and talk about how amazing the special effects were in this film? It’s seriously ahead of it’s time.
3. Little Darlings – Another summer camp movie. I’m not sure how well-known this one is, but it’s a must-see for any girl.
2. Now and Then – This was actually my favorite movie for many years.
1. The Parent Trap (original) – Let’s get together, yeah yeah yeah!

Runners up: Camp Nowhere, The Parent Trap (starring Lo-ho), Gidget
