8 Great Summer Vacation Movies [VIDEO]

Warner Bros.

While summer doesn’t officially start until June 21, the Memorial Day holiday marks the unofficial beginning to the year’s hottest season.

Summer loses some of its meaning when you’re an adult, since it no longer comes with a multi-month break from the grind that is your regular life.

Nevertheless, we can all still enjoy a good movie about summer vacations, and after the jump are eight of our favorites.

8. The Great Outdoors 1988

John Candy made a couple movies in which family summer vacations go wrong.

7. I Know What You Did Last Summer 1997

You know it’s summer because Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jennifer Love Hewitt wear lots of skimpy tops.

6. Summer School 1987

Fun loving teacher and unmotivated students make the best of being forced into summer school.

5. Sandlot 1993

Coming of age film involving a summer sandlot baseball game and a scary looking dog.

4. Wet Hot American Summer 2001

Campy spoof of the summer camp movies of yore.

3. Meatballs 1979

Bill Murray plays a very droll camp counselor.

2. Dirty Dancing 1987

Unlikely summer love.

1. National Lampoon’s Vacation 1983

Ah, the Family Truckster.
