1. National Lampoon's Vacation
I can so remember torturous summer vacations like this. Well, we never dragged a dog behind our car or ate pee-pee sandwiches but still...
2. Dirty Dancing
I have to be honest, I have a lot of problems with this movie. The primary one being a 1960's setting with mostly 1980's music. However, despite the out of place music and questionable acting, it does draw you in and what is more alluring than going on vacation with your family and meeting 1980's Patrick Swayze...
3. Only You
Another movie I remember watching with my best friend when we were younger and we just thought it was the most romantic thing ever. Jetting off to Europe and falling in love...*sigh*
4. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Despite the movies on this list, I am not usually a typically "chick flick" kinda gal. "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" is more my speed and it is f-u-n-n-y.
5. Pride and Prejudice
This is one of my favorite all time movies. And might I add: the Colin Firth A&E version is the ONLY version to watch, please do not ever watch the Keira Knightly version...yuck! lol There is quite a bit of traveling and vacation in this movie and Colin Firth is Darcy incarnate.
Well there you have it, my top 5 vacation movies...at least for now. What are your favorite movies about vacation, to watch while on vacation or to watch to let your brain take a vacation??? lol
Have a great weekend everyone!
