I was searching through my ON DEMAND movie list this evening, as my son and husband went to bed obscenely early lol, and I couldn't a find a new release I felt like watching.
Then, I looked at the $1 movie offerings and there was a catetgory titled "Summertime", and 10 or so movies popped up that all obviously have a summer theme.
I immediately chose "Summer Rental" (1985) starring the late, great John Candy. My dad and I loved John Candy's movies, in particular this one. We even watched it a few times together and had all kinds of "inside" jokes that revolved around the movie.
Now that my dad is in the hospital for nearly 3 months and not doing well, it made me a bit sad to watch the movie, but also reminded me of the laughter we shared together.
20 plus years later, this movie is STILL a riot. If you have not seen, I highly recommend it. It's sweet, family oriented, funny and the story of an underdog who wants to do right by his kids and make them proud of him. Also, the darling who plays the youngest child in the film is just too cute for words. :-)
What are some of your favorite summer movies?
