With summer in full swing, you may find yourself wanting to enjoy some lighthearted, family friendly films. Below is a list of all the best summer movies on Netflix.
Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Auli'i Cravalho, Nicole Scherzinger and Jemaine Clement.
Synopsis: "The film tells the story of Moana, the strong-willed daughter of a chief of a Polynesian tribe, who is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite a mystical relic with a goddess. When a blight strikes her island, Moana sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod, in the hope of saving her people."
With all the music, and bright colors, and ocean theme, Moana is the perfect animated adventure to stream this summer.
Starring: Ian Ziering and Tara Reid.
Synopsis: "Sharknado is a 2013 made-for-television science fiction disaster horror comedy film about a waterspout that lifts sharks out of the ocean and deposits them in Los Angeles."
When it comes to outlandish and absurd, you can't get much better than Sharknado. This ridiculous flick is a perfect summertime watch.
Starring: Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper and Chris Pine.
Synopsis: "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is a 2015 satirical comedy internet television series written by David Wain and Michael Showalter, and directed by Wain. The eight-episode Netflix series is a prequel to Wain's 2001 film Wet Hot American Summer, a parody of teen sex comedies which has since developed a cult following."
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is a hilarious absolute must-watch, but then go back and check out the Wet Hot American Summer movie. This will get you readily prepared for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later.
Starring: Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and Bill Murray.
Synopsis: "The year is 1965, and the residents of New Penzance, an island off the coast of New England, inhabit a community that seems untouched by some of the bad things going on in the rest of the world. Twelve-year-olds Sam and Suzy have fallen in love and decide to run away. But a violent storm is approaching the island, forcing a group of quirky adults to mobilize a search party and find the youths before calamity strikes."
Packed with a star-studded cast giving their most comedically dry performances, if you want a quality feel-good movie, then Moonrise Kingdom is exactly what you need.
Ran from: October 3, 1960 - April 1, 1968
Starring: Andy Griffith, Ron Howard, and Don Knotts.
You don't need a synopsis of The Andy Griffith Show to what it's about and why it's the perfect summer show.
With over 200 episodes during its legendary 8-year-run, the down-home feel and "olden days" vibe of the show will almost make you feel cooler while you binge. Plus, it's hundreds of hours with of content so you know it'll last you the rest of the summer.
