Top Five June Movies
And into summer we go! As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.
Four Weddings and a Funeral - June of course is known for weddings and I humbly submit that this is the best wedding movie of all time. Charming and witty. Poignant and heartfelt. And able to overcome the casting of Andie McDowell.
Say Anything - Another end of year movie, and a personal romantic favorite. I can't watch John Cusack without thinking of the scene. You know the one. Yep, this one right here.
National Lampoon's Vacation - And on to summer vacation. This is one of the best family road trip movies out there. Remember back when Chevy Chase was funny?
Field of Dreams - More baseball. Not as good as 'Bull Durham' but then, what is, right? This movie captures the magic that bonding over sports can create.
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World - Another road trip film, this one is possibly the zaniest movie in my collection. A great collection of actors. A great snapshot of its era. The quasi remake 'Rat Race' is also pretty good.
