Sure, it’s fun to be outdoors at this time of year in order to enjoy the warm weather and summer sunshine. But sometimes it’s fun to be inside in the air conditioning, too. So why not have your own Summer Film Festival and rent some of these “classic” summer-themed movies for a little warm weather fun? Yes, some of these titles are a little ‘cheesy,’ but can’t we all use a little extra fluff in our lives (other than on our waistlines)?

To find these titles, you can check out your own local video stores (if you’re lucky enough to have any left in your area) or check them out (so to speak) online via Amazon Instant Video, iTunes or even netflix or Blockbuster (which both offer online access as well as actual home delivery).
