Summer is in full-swing. There are many things that are going-on with the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people are spending these summer days at home. So, right now is a great time to watch some fun summer-time movies. You should check-out these movies if you want to relax, if you want to smile, or if you want to have a good time at home.
Check out my list of summer-time movies that you will love to watch here below:
- Now and Then (1995)
Now and Then is a great family-fun movie. Now and Then is a movie about four friends. The four friends are named Roberta, Teeny, Chrissy, and Samantha. In the start of the movie the four friends meet-up again after the years they spent apart. Chrissy is about to have a baby and the women remember a promise that the women would be there for one-another if one of them ever needed the other girls. While the four are together they reminisce about the time when the girls were adolescents… they remember the time that they tried to find “Dear Johnny.”
Who is “Dear Johnny?” How did “Dear Johnny” die? Why did “Dear Johnny” die so young? The mystery haunts the girls.
Despite the serious subject matter in the movie there are also many family-friendly moments in this movie. The girls love, laugh, and learn together.
The four girls have a summer that they will never forget. You should definitely give this movie a chance.
2. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a movie that I think many teens and young women will love to watch this summer. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a movie about four friends. There’s Bridget. She’s the soccer star. There’s Lena. She’s the Greek beauty. There’s Tibby. She’s the movie-buff. There’s Carmen. She’s the studious girl who comes-up with the idea of “The Sisterhood.”
So, what is “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?” “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” is the sisterhood that the four girls create together. The four find a pair of pants that magically fit all four of them perfectly while the girls are out shopping together. The girls decide to pass-the-pants off to one another in the mail while the girls are separated for the summer doing different activities. They believe that the pants will keep the four’s friendship alive.
I really love this movie. Bridget, Lena, Tibby and Carmen are different from one-another… but they share a friendship with one-another that is special. This is a great summer-time movie.
The next movie that I want to recommend is the movie named Crossroads. Crossroads is a movie that stars the famous pop-icon, Britney Spears. The movie, Crossroads, is Britney Spears’ first debut film-role. Britney Spears plays the main character named Lucy in the film. Lucy wants to find her birth-mother. She goes on a summer road trip with her two best friends to find her. Lucy’s two best-friends are named Kit and Mimi. They go along for the ride.
Crossroads is a sweet and fun movie to see. The four friends go through many things before they reach Lucy’s birth-mother in California. There is friendship and romance in the movie. Crossroads is a classic movie that I think many women will enjoy watching (or re-watching) this summer.
4. Roadtrip (2000)
The movie, Roadtrip, is another one of my all-time-favorite movies. Roadtrip is hilarious. It’s a laugh-out-loud funny-type of movie. Roadtrip is about a college student named Josh. Josh has a long-term girlfriend who attends another college. One day Josh cheats on his girlfriend… and he accidentally sends his girlfriend the video-tape of the night that he cheated on her. Josh goes on a Roadtrip with his friends to his girlfriend’s college to retrieve the video-tape before Josh’s girlfriend watches it.
There are a lot of great scenes in this movie. Josh and his friends go to a frat house on the boys’ way to the college. They have a wild party with the African-American college students from the fraternity. Josh and his friends steal a bus. They need the bus to return home to school. Josh also smokes weed and studies on the bus ride on his way back home… just in time to take his final exam.
This is a really funny movie to watch. This movie is similar to Eurotrip. It’s a great comedy that many people will enjoy.
I give all of these movies a solid 5/5 rating. I think you will really like them, too.
