If you don’t like any of the movies on this list, you can check out the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular on NBC at 8 p.m. on Saturday night.

Performers include Alabama, Barry Manilow, Hunter Hayes, KC and the Sunshine Band, Lang Lang, Meghan Linsey, Nicole Scherzinger, Robert Davi, and Ronan Tynan.
