What better way to ring in your summer break than to sit on your butt and watch a movie!
Wait, what?Yeah, sure. Why not!Here are 7 movies you can fire up on Netflix, Hulu, Blu-Ray, DVD, or VHS, and start your three months of slacking off right!The FacultyThis is the first movie that comes to mind any time I think about school, whether it be the start or end of school, or anywhere in between, solely from the song that plays during the trailer. “School’s out forevah!”
Dazed and ConfusedWith the actual “School’s out for Summer” song in all its glory, there’s a reason this movie and it’s mailbox baseballing, freshman hazing, marijuana smoking wonderfulness has been called one of the funniest movies of all time in many top 10 lists.
Fast Times at Ridgemont HighNot so much a ‘get ready for summer’ flick as a ‘this is all the fun you missed out on this year, so try harder next year’ flick, any person who’s been through the hell that can be high school needs to see this movie. And this scene at least three times:
Recess: School’s OutThis was made in 2001, when PC was a term often used, but not maniacally enforced like it is today, so this might be a little risque for parents today. All the reason for kids to go over to their cool friend’s parent’s house to watch it!
Friday the 13thThe original! Summer camp, underage sex, and the masterpiece that was responsible for it all. Even Jason X.
Stand by MeBecause no summer break would be complete with outrunning a train, pulling leaches off your wang, and looking for and finding a dead body!
The SandlotAdd playing baseball and being terrorized by a huge murderous dog to that list above!
And if all else fails? Anything with this guy in it!
