Summer is here, and if you're not excited about watching new movies , it's time to go back to some old, romantic favorites. If you're hoping to have your own Summer fling, you can first get inspired by these 10 film couples as the weather gets warmer. Each provides that giddy first-time feeling, from young puppy love (My Girl) to a more grown-up attraction (Dirty Dancing). Enjoy, and try not to get too overheated!
James and Em, Adventureland
- Summer setting: Adventureland amusement park
- Most memorable moment: When Em (Kristen Stewart ) is confused about her feelings for James (Jesse Eisenberg) and her affair with an older, married man (Ryan Reynolds ), her kiss with James under a bridge makes it clear that something very real is growing between them.
- Did it last? Yes; after a couple of stumbles, they reunite once and for all on a rain-soaked NYC night.

Matt and Anne Marie, Blue Crush
- Summer setting: The Hawaiian beach
- Most memorable moment: Surfer Anne Marie (Kate Bosworth ) wipes out on a wave during the Pipeline Masters competition, bringing back bad memories of a near-death experience. Seeing her shaken, Matt (Matthew Davis) shares the story of his first nervous game as a football quarterback, helping Anne Marie to muster up the gumption to finish the competition.
- Did it last? As far as we know!
Baby and Johnny, Dirty Dancing
- Summer setting: A resort in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York
- Most memorable moment: Baby (Jennifer Grey), upset, shows up at Johnny's (Patrick Swayze) cabin to deliver the now-famous line: "Most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you." The pelvic-thrusting dance that follows (to the tune of "Cry to Me") makes me blush every time.
- Did it last? The film ends with the dance-happy couple still doing lifts.
Sandy and Danny, Grease
- Summer setting: The beach
- Most memorable moment: Even though we see very little of Sandy and Danny's beach romance, it makes enough of an impression that they dedicate an entire song to those crazy Summer nights.
- Did it last? Of course! They'll always . . . be together . . . (chang chang changitty chang shoobop).
Vada and Thomas J., My Girl
- Summer setting: 1970s Madison, Pennsylvania
- Most memorable moment: 11-year-olds Vada (Anna Chlumsky) and Thomas J. (Macaulay Culkin) share their first kiss by the water.
- Did it last? No; in a tragic turn of events, an allergic Thomas J. succumbs to a fatal bee sting.
Lloyd and Diane, Say Anything
- Summer setting: Seattle, right after high school graduation
- Most memorable moment: Boombox scene aside, who can forget the moment when Diane (Ione Skye) and Lloyd (John Cusack ) finally have sex in the backseat of his car? Lloyd shivers because of his feelings, leaving the rest of us to swoon . . . and with our dating standards set irrationally high.
- Did it last? Lloyd accompanies Diane on a plane to London, as the screen cuts to black.
Lena and Kostas, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
- Summer setting: Greece
- Most memorable moment: Since their families are feuding, Kostas (Michael Rady) and Lena (Alexis Bledel) mostly stick to secret dates, like a midnight rendezvous in their pajamas.
- Did it last? Yes. They even survive a sequel and Kostas's brief engagement to someone else.
Noah and Allie, The Notebook
- Summer setting: A carnival followed by a whirlwind of small-town date spots (the movies, the ice cream shop, etc.)
- Most memorable moment: After several missed opportunities for privacy, Noah (Ryan Gosling ) takes Allie (Rachel McAdams ) to his rundown dream house so they can be alone. She plays the piano, he stares intensely, and their overdue longing builds into a sexy but sweet first time for the couple — that's unfortunately interrupted.
- Did it last? To quote the film, "It still isn't over!" Years later, Noah comes to woo Allie all over again and we're still swooning .
Luke and Stephanie, The Wackness
- Summer setting: 1994 New York City
- Most memorable moment: Luke (Josh Peck) makes up for his embarrassing, tear-filled loss of virginity to Stephanie (Olivia Thirlby) with a steamy, beachside shower.
- Did it last? No. Even though Luke is head over heels, their tryst is just a diversion for Stephanie.
Jim and Michelle, American Pie 2
- Summer setting: Lake Michigan
- Most memorable moment: Realizing his feelings for Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) are more than just platonic, Jim (Jason Biggs) crashes a band camp recital and plays a horn (badly) to get her attention.
- Did it last? Yes; they get married in the following movie.
