What's Buzzworthy: Movies to Watch in the Summer

What's Buzzworthy: Movies to Watch in the Summer

Last weekend I asked you guys to Buzzworthy the movies you love to watch this time of year because they give you that warm summertime feeling. I mentioned Summer School, Dirty Dancing, and National Lampoon's Vacation, giving examples of a teen beachy movie, a sweaty summer-of-love movie, and a hilarious movie about a family vacation gone awry. You all reminded me of other great titles I'd completely forgotten about, but now I'm updating my Netflix queue to make it a little more June-appropriate. Here are some of my favorite Buzzworthied summertime flicks:

Jaws
Ah, the summertime classic! As gruaig_rua reminds us, "You'll never go in the water again."

Cocktail
mellie_608 says this about her pick: "'Aruba, Jamaica, ooooh I wanna take you.....' A movie made better by a great soundtrack; Kokomo, Hippy Hippy Shake, Don't Worry be Happy, All Shook up. This is the Tom Cruise I enjoy watching!"

Three more great movies if you

Almost Famous
Chosen by swwonder who writes, "One of my most favourite films. I'd love to spend a summer with my favourite band." Ditto!

Stand By Me
Fab_Kitty selected this movie about the power of friendship, which could have also worked for my tearjerker movies Buzzworthy challenge. Fab_Kitty says, "This movie gets me every time. Bonus: A cameo by John Cusack."

Wet Hot American Summer
I can't believe I neglected to mention this one originally since, being the lovechild of some of my favorite actors/comedians in the world (Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, members of "The State"), it's one of my all-time favorite films. About her pick, WhiplashGirlchild explains, "Wet Hot is quite possibly my favorite comedy of all time. It's based on the camp movies of the 70's and 80's and is absolutely hilarious."

Jaws, the original summer blockbuster, is one of my all-time favorite films. Excellent choices all around, Buzz!
