10 Movies To Get You Pumped For Summer

Summer is almost here. What better way to get pumped up than with a good summer movie? Here are 10 of my favorite movies to watch in the summer!

1. Mamma Mia!Gif courtesy of giphy.com

This is not only one of my favorite movies, but also the perfect summer movie. The music by ABBA is contagious, and the beautiful Greece setting is the vacation of my dreams. I swear I watch it numerous times during the summer. Be sure to watch this before the sequel comes out in July!

2. Lilo & StitchGif courtesy of giphy.com

Lilo & Stitch is another perfect summer movie. Stitch is one of the cutest Disney characters and Lilo’s sass will have you laughing instantly. The mix of hula dancing, surfing, and aliens will have you wanting to go on a “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride!”

3. MoanaGif courtesy of giphy.com

Sticking with Disney, Moana is next on this list. The lovable characters, catchy music, and gorgeous setting make this one of my favorite Disney princess movies. Get your friends together and belt your hearts out to “How Far I’ll Go!”

4. AquamarineGif courtesy of giphy.com

This is one of my favorite childhood movies. Who wouldn’t want to be friends with a mermaid? Not only is this movie memorable because of the friendships and humor, but it also gave us one of the most relatable movie quotes of all time (as pictured above)!

5. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (1 & 2)Gif courtesy of giphy.com

This is the perfect summer sleepover movie. Their story of friendship will make you laugh, cry, and appreciate your friends even more. Everyone can relate to at least one of the girls. And, this movie formed one of the best celebrity friend groups of all time!

6. High School Musical 2Gif courtesy of giphy.com

This list wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t include this movie. I was obsessed with all the High School Musical movies growing up. Who else wanted to spend their summer at Lava Springs Country Club? Sing and dance your heart out to this childhood classic!

7. Incredibles 2Gif courtesy of giphy.com

This movie may not be out yet, but it comes out this summer and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m a huge fan of the original, and I can’t wait to see what the sequel has in store. “Where’s my supersuit?”

8. GreaseGif courtesy of giphy.com

This feel-good movie is the perfect summer pick me up and another obvious choice for the list. This classic movie can be watched any time of year, but feels the most right in the summer! 

9. The SandlotGif courtesy of giphy.com

Another memorable childhood movie makes the list. Even if you don’t like baseball, the humor will have you quoting this movie for years to come! 

10. Back to the Future (1, 2, & 3)Gif courtesy of giphy.com

This classic trilogy is the perfect summer binge. It has everything the perfect summer blockbuster should have: adventure, mystery, time travel, and more. If you’ve never seen these, definitely check them out. Grab some popcorn, and get ready to go back in time!

Happy watching!
