We Like to Watch: Magic Mike (and 4 Other Summer Movies To Get You In The Mood)

We’ll admit that even though the outside temperatures are rising, sometimes we prefer the cool lure of an air conditioned theatre over the sweltering heat. For those days when the sun gets to be unbearable, we suggest checking out these summer movies. Although we can’t promise they’ll cool you down–if anything they’ll do just the opposite.

Magic Mike

It's not like they make movies about male strippers everyday so this is first on our must-see list. Plus, any flick that combines the likes of Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello is okay in our book. Wait, now that we think about it...do these three ever have their shirts on?

The Amazing Spiderman

We're not sure as to why movie execs chose to make yet another Spiderman movie, but we're willing to give this one a shot. Not only are Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield real-life lovebirds, but the two play on screen loves as well. We just hope they reenact that upside down kiss from the 2002 adaptation.

For A Good Time Call

We love that this comedy combines all things awkward and uncomfortable. Not only is phone sex involved, but add broke, squabbling roommates to the mix and you have a recipe for comedic success. Actor Justin Long doesn't hurt either.

Two words: Tom Hardy. If this Englishman isn't already on your radar, we suggest Google and a cold shower. As a bonus, this action drama will appeal to the man in your life while you get to enjoy the eye candy on screen.

Red Lights

As previous Robert De Niro thrillers have done before, Red Lights will be sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. If you aren't peeking through your hands, chances are you'll be hanging on to your significant other. Sounds like a good excuse to get close, if you ask us.
