Thanks, but I have chosen the most popular movies. Also because there already exists a poll with the word 'summer' in titles.

i understand, but you have a movie like 'grease', which takes place right after summer is over and the school year begins, so it has absolutely nothing to do with summer...

Not a bad list.

Maybe just "Summer Movies"?

I agree, the title can be better. I changed it into "Summer in Movies".

'Summer Movies' can be confusing because people might think that the sunmer is the main theme in these movies. Or they think this is a list of movies you have to watch in the summer.

Your first sentence will read better as, "Summer starts on June 21st.

Many of these aren't considered "summer" movies, though they may occur during summer. Summer of '42, suggestion above, is a classic summertime movie and should be included.

You should review these lists for better options:

Thanks! I reconsidered my poll. I deleted some movies and I added summer movies. I changed the description into:
Summer starts on June 21st! Which movie that take place in the summer, is your favorite?

I like to know what you think. And can you change my text and the title in this thread? The poll is now called: Summertime!

I like the new title. Some corrections to your question: Summer starts on June 21st. Which movie that takes place in the summer is your favorite? 

Also, are you dead-set on only 25 titles?

You gave me the idea for the title when you said 'summertime' in your previous reaction.
I've made the corrections. Thanks again!

No, it doesn't have to be 25 titles. Suggestion are welcome. I added Jaws and removed 2. My New criteria: summer have to be a part of the story. So, the word 'summer' have to be mentioned in the storyline. And I like to have known movies (at least 5.000 votes).

Do the Right Thing, with a shout-out to lesser known films on the list that were particularly good: The Way, Way Back and A Walk on the Moon. Of course, Stand by Me is great too but well known.

FYC:

The iconic summertime film, Jaws
A League of Their Own
Field of Dreams

Thanks! I added Jaws. I haven't seen the other 2. But the word 'summer' isn't mentioned in the storyline. Although they takes place in the summer, I think they are more about baseball. And I like to have movies in the list where the summer is a part of the story.
