OK, sure, there are the obvious things we get excited for when summer rolls around: lazy days tanning in our backyards, making boozy popsicles every time the temperature rises, and reading by the pool every sunny day. But let's be honest, some days (and nights!) are worth spending on the couch — because you can binge-watch a summer-themed movie on Netflix with the AC on high. Why take a trip to the beach for the seventh day in a row when you could vicariously live through someone else doing so on the big screen (sans the heat, sweat, and messy amounts of sand)?

Scroll through for a binge-watcher's guide to the best summer movies on Netflix, including everything from romantic comedies and dramas to thought-provoking documentaries and thrillers based on true stories. We promise, there are enough titles to get you through the entire summer — you know, even when it's just way too hot to make it out of the house. Read on for our favorite flicks ahead!
