The dog days of summer are upon us, and it got me thinking about movies that center around or were filmed at a beach. There’s nothing like a day at the beach unless you’re stranded there like in 'Castaway', or there’s a killer shark attacking you a la ‘Jaws’.

But some are more light-hearted like the silliness that ensued in ‘Couples Retreat’ or the 1961 classic ‘Blue Hawaii’.  Take a look at these 10 sand-filled beach films.
