Obviously, we all have to watch Independence Day. While it isn’t technically a 4th of July movie, Ghostbusters makes the list, because we cannot watch Ghostbusters 2 without watching the first one. And, we have to watch the second one, because the Statue of Liberty makes her debut as a stunt person.
Say what you will about Christmas in July, but you cannot deny the very God Bless America feeling you get when you watch Christmas Vacation which is why it makes the list.
Four movies is more than enough to get you through the weekend, because you have other things to do like grill various foods and hurl your loved ones down a wet strip of plastic.
Happy America, Friends.
