Summer time means more time outside. Family vacations and day trips. Sometimes mom and / or dad might want a quiet night at home. Make it a movie night with a couple releases that are still pretty popular. (Maybe you have seen them and just want to watch again, I am not here to judge!) I know some parents take portable DVD players to watch on road trips for the kiddo's, why not take it and make your trip more enjoyable too??
Check out a few must see movies:
First Up - The Best of Me - based on the book by Nicholas Sparks. Enough said right there, but in case you need more information:
Based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller from celebrated author Nicholas Sparks comes this tender, romantic drama about the timeless power of love. When former high school sweethearts Dawson and Amanda (James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan) meet at a loved one's funeral 20 years after tragedy separated them, their love is reignited. As they recall and relive the past, they come to a deeper understanding about the choices they've made. Also starring Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato, and featuring beautiful scenery along with music by Lady Antebellum, The Best of Me is a powerfully romantic story of love, hope and second chances.
For the Home Entertainment release, the “Tears of Joy” Edition Blu-ray and DVD will include an all-new storyline and “Storybook” Alternate Ending so Amanda and Dawson finally get that second chance at love.

Second title: Hector and the Search for Happiness:
From the director of Serendipity and based on the acclaimed novel comes this funny, imaginative film with an all-star cast. By all appearances, Hector (Simon Pegg) has it all – a successful psychiatry practice, a comfortable home and a beautiful, loving girlfriend (Rosamund Pike). However, he’s frustrated that he can’t provide his patients with real happiness – or even define it for them. So, he decides to travel the world in search of the elusive emotion. From rural China to Africa and even to Los Angeles, Hector’s trek is as hilarious as it is enlightening in this richly satisfying comedy that also stars Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer and Stellan Skarsgård.
