Summer Movies

It’s another hot Gilbert, AZ summer. Stay cool by enjoying a movie marathon in your air-conditioned apartment. This month the Liv Northgate Apartments Blog has five movie recommendations to add to your summer movie binge list.


Say Anything …(1989)

Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack) is a recent high school graduate who has no idea what he’s going to do with his life. Diane Court (Ione Skye), the class valedictorian, has it all figured out. Lloyd and Diane fall in love in the pause between high school and “real life.” Meanwhile, Diane’s father, Jim Court (John Mahoney), deals with a devastating scandal.


What About Bob? (1991)

Bob Wiley (Bill Murray) is having a hard time right now. When his psychiatrist, Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss), goes on vacation, it sends Bob into a tailspin. Bob follows Dr. Marvin on vacation, determined to get the therapy he needs—even if it means driving his doctor crazy.


The Parent Trap (1961)

There’s nothing like an original summer classic. Susan and Sharon (Hayley Mills) meet at summer camp, discover that they’re twins, and resolve to get their parents back together. The only thing standing in their way? Vicky Robinson (Joanna Barnes), their father’s new fiancee.


Grease (1978)

Danny (John Travolta) and Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) meet and fall in love over the summer. Going back to high school complicates their relationship as ex-girlfriends, T-Birds, Pink Ladies, and dance-offs get in the way of their love.


Because of Winn-Dixie (2005)

India Opal Buloni’s (AnnaSophia Robb) summer gets a lot more exciting when she meets Winn-Dixie, a Berger Picard, at her local supermarket. Winn-Dixie helps new-in-town Opal meet the quirky characters living in her small town.
