I was recently brainstorming about classic summer movies and my usual standbys of Gidget, Endless Summer, or Mr Hobbs Takes A Vacation suddenly leapt to the slightly more recent flick Jaws. Despite the fact the shark might scare you out of the ocean for a few months, is there really any more appropriate film for the season (after all the film opens on Fourth of July weekend)? Jaws is decidedly a classic not because of the scares, but the wonderful Hitchcockian suspense. If you somehow have managed to miss this film, I definitely recommend a viewing this year. Full of memorable one-liners, clever visuals, a stunning soundtrack, and effective thrills--Jaws is not your typical summer adventure flick of flash and no substance.
