The best vacation movies of all time
Let’s take a quick look at some of the greatest vacation themed films of all time.
Vacation movies are a great way to relax and enjoy beautiful scenery and charming stories without leaving your couch. There is something about movies and holidays that never fails to stir our emotions and inspire a desire for adventure and exploring.
Groundhog Day. With one of the most ingenious concepts for a comedy ever, Groundhog Day stars Bill Murray as grouchy weatherman Phil Connors, who must re-live over and over again the same despised Groundhog Day in Small-Town, USA until he gets it 100% correct. Director Harold Ramis joins forces with Murray to get it right yet again.
Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Are you in the mood for a relaxing romantic tale bursting with European style and mood? In this modern day Woody Allen classic you can experience the beauties and sights of Barcelona without getting outside your house. Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson and Javier Bardem will make you feel as if you were spending a two month summer in Barcelona. Viewers will be rewarded with unconventional romance and Catalan culture.
Weekend at Bernie’s. In this famous comedy, dark sunglasses and white chinos abound! A movie with funny circumstances, Bernie (Terry Kiser) is not about to let something like like death get in the way of his beach getaway. In the film, Bernie is the center of attention at his "floating party" thanks to his two employees Larry (McCarthy) and Richard (Silverman), whose motives for pretending their boss is alive are questionable, but whose talent for hiding he's dead are hard to deny.
Deliverance. Some of the best movies about holidays aren’t relaxing at all; such is the case of Deliverance. The film tells the story of a group of city businessmen that decide to escape the urban monotony to get in touch with nature in the woods of Georgia. From the first minutes there are multiple clues that their little getaway isn’t going towards the expected outcome. Full of scenes such as a Banjo session with the locals to terror and desperation when they confront the kind of hillbillies you don’t want to be around.
Dazed and Confused. Do you want to relive some of the euphoria that washed over you when the final bell rung on the last day of school? Dazed and Confused is one of the best ways to do so. The film tells the story of a diverse bunch of high school kids from the 70’s engaging in a variety of activities closely related to the decade. The movie will make you wish you were part of their gang.
