As July speeds by and temperatures continue to soar, there are quite a few things I wish I could do. Eat ice cream for every meal, go on a road trip with the windows down and the wind roaring by, run through a sprinkler, or go to the beach. On a hot summer’s day, there are very few things better than reading on the beach and riding waves back to shore.
Unfortunately, I have yet to make it all the way to a beach this summer and my chances don’t look good for the next month and a half. Luckily for me, Hollywood has produced a plethora of movies that take place on sandy shores. The beach movie had its heyday in America in the 1960’s, but has been reinvented many times over the years. Some beach movies are light and funny teen flicks, while others are edgier dramas. No matter the plot, that first glimpse of white sand and blue water never fails to pull me in.
