Because of Winn-Dixie (2005)

“India Opal Buloni (AnnaSophia Robb) is new in town. When she finds Berger Picard Winn-Dixie at the local ‘Winn-Dixie’ supermarket, she thinks it’s fate.

The Karate Kid (1984)

The Sandlot (1993)

“Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry) is the new kid in town. Fitting in with the other kids means joining the neighborhood baseball games at the Sandlot. During this eventful summer, Smalls learns the value of honesty, friendship, and not judging a book by its cover.”


Grease (1978)

“Danny (John Travolta) and Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) have the perfect summer romance, but staying in love during the school year turns out to be more difficult than they thought it would be. Danny and Sandy navigate the tricky waters of high school romance while the T-Birds and Pink Ladies sing, dance, and battle it out with their rival gang, The Scorpions.”


The Parent Trap (1998)

“Annie and Hallie (Lindsay Lohan) have never met, but they’ve got a lot in common. When their parents (Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson) send them to the same summer camp, they develop a fierce rivalry before discovering that they’re twins. In an attempt to get to know their estranged parents, the twins decide to switch places for the rest of the summer. When Annie discovers that their father is about to marry his horrible girlfriend, Meredith Blake, the twins hatch a scheme to get their parents back together.”
