Summertime and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh your Daddy’s rich and your ma is good lookin’
So hush little baby, don’t you cry
As the song says, there’s no crying during the summer. It’s a time for prancing through fields of wildflowers, soaking up sun and sand and salt at the beach, and jumping feet-first into leech-infested lakes. All of these things and more have been captured in all sorts of movies, and so this week we dive into the leech-infested genre that is summertime movies. Let’s just hope there’s not too many baseball movies on these lists.
