School is almost out and that means summer movies are just around the corner.  Here are some fun movies to watch this summer.

“American Pie”

The story revolves around Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs) and his high school friends who vow to lose their virginity by prom night.  Most of the conversations are about sex.  After speculating that it must feel like “warm apple pie,” Jim’s father (Eugene Levy) walks in, as he’s getting busy with a fresh-baked apple pie his mother made.  Jim constantly strikes out with the girls.  He asks band geek Michelle Flaherty (Alyson Hanning) to the prom after his failed rendezvous with exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth).  Michelle tells Jim a story about “This one time, at band camp…”

“Wayne’s World”

Wayne Campbell (Mike Myers) and Garth Algar (Dana Carvey) run a cable access show out of  Wayne’s parent’s basement.  This comedy pokes fun at the movie industry: From the product placement scene to the greedy executive (played superbly by Rob Lowe) who plans to buy the rights while cheating the creators out of any of the profits.

Chris Farley, Alice Cooper and Ed O’Neill are just some of the stars who make appearances in this movie adapted from the popular “Saturday Night Live” sketches.

“The 40 Year Old Virgin”

Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) is a shy, single guy.  It comes out during a poker game with friends from work that he is still a virgin.

They take it upon themselves to help him lose his virginity.  After bad advice from his co-workers, one even hiring a prostitute, Andy boldly asks Trish Piedmont (Catherine Keener) out, a customer who owns a shop across the street from where Andy works.

After tons of misunderstandings, he finally tells her he is still a virgin.
