Shelley Long plays a Beverly Hills socialite who’s just about to get divorced. She takes over as den mother to her daughter’s Wilderness Girl troop as she tries to keep her relationship with her daughter in the middle of the divorce. She’s hardly adept at anything in the wilderness, so she teaches her scouts how to survive in the Beverly Hills wild.

Twins (both played by Lindsay Lohan) separated at birth are on a mission to get their parents back together. After meeting (and discovering they’re half of a twin) at a summer camp, Annie and Hallie are determined to get to know their other parent by swapping places. They end up falling in love with each other’s absentee parent and finding ways to reunite them.

What is more quintessential summer than the surf? Kate Bosworth is surfer girl Anne Marie who plans on conquering the Pipe Masters surf competition. Nothing else matters, just her board and her three roommates in Hawaii. That is until she meets pro quarterback Matt Tolman (Matthew Davis) and falls hard for him.

For your next beach escapade, go full-on surfer girl a la Anne Marie minus the competition.
