Feeling nostalgic? We picked three of our favourite summer flicks that capture a slice of the season in the good old days.
Tomboy teen Francie hits the beach on summer vacation and ends up falling for a couple of surfers who nickname her Gidget and teach her to hang 10. Spoiler: By the end of the season, love-struck Moondoggie gives the perky blond his fraternity pin.
Dirty Dancing (1987)
It's 1963 and Baby and her family are at Kellerman's, a resort in the Catskills. She soon meets dreamy dance instructor Johnny Castle, who quite literally sweeps her off her feet, teaching her to dance and come into her own before summer's end.
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002)
Sidda and her mother, Vivi, have a huge falling- out. That's when the Ya-Yas—Vivi's group of lifelong friends—intervene to bring mother and daughter back together.
