The Flamingo Kid finds Jeffrey Willis (Matt Dillon) searching for some future direction through a summer job at the posh Flamingo Club. One Crazy Summer, starring John Cusack, is all about potentially boring holidays that take a turn and become the best of our lives. Caddyshack, which might be known only by the geekiest lovers of the '80s—and also has appearances by box office star Bill Murray—is another classic that never fails to make us laugh with its absurd humor during a summer in which the main character is trying to figure out his next steps in life.
So, either if it’s to recall our best summer flings, July spent deciphering the future, August working in some boring job but meeting the greatest people, or warm days with our best friends imagining the craziest adventures, there is no summer spirit like the one that we were taught to imagine through our favorite films of the '80s. Look for your treasurable VHS copies of Dirty Dancing, Caddyshack, or The Goonies and spice up your vacation with some healthy nostalgia. You might find yourself rediscovering a feeling that you thought was long gone.
