Honestly, it would be a crime to not watch this classic over the holiday weekend. Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum taking on aliens threatening to wipe out the United States? Doesn’t get much better than that.
Fighter pilots, beach volleyball, and Kenny Loggins jams… a perfect American combination. Spend the 4th with Maverick, Goose, and Iceman and get excited for it’s upcoming sequel.
The Sandlot is the perfect movie to watch for July 4th. Not only is it all about America’s favorite past time, but the childhood nostalgia is real.

With great performances by Mel Gibson and the late Heath Ledger, you’ll be waving your American flag all over the house after watching this classic.
Follow Forrest Gump through the major events in American history he was a part of. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and learn some life lessons. Remember that life is like a box of chocolates, people.
“Houston, we have a problem.” There’s nothing that bands American’s together more than trying to bring home three astronauts after their spacecraft undergoes serious internal damage.
Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde
There’s nothing wrong with a little chick flick on the 4th of July! Elle Woods travels to DC to pass a bill to ban animal testing in this fun sequel.
