Whether it’s filled with races and chases or heart-warming moments, these are the movies that make road trips appealing (well, mostly – sorry Chevy, I wouldn’t get in a car with you and your family if you paid me).
It Happened One Night. This 1934 flick was the first great road movie in Hollywood history.
National Lampoon’s Vacation. Because you can’t talk about road trips without mentioning the Griswolds.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Steve Martin + John Candy = one side-splitting movie.
Easy Rider. Just watch it and try not to want a motorcycle. (Impossible.)
Due Date. Because who doesn’t love Zach Galifianakis?
Crossroads. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. If a food craving doesn’t constitute a road trip, I don’t know what does.
Thelma & Louise. The film that brought us Brad Pitt. Sure, it’s an amazing, Oscar-winning movie, but come on – it’s what we were all thinking.
Little Miss Sunshine. The beauty pageant striptease at the end? Awkward? Yes. Hilarious? Without a doubt.
Rain Man. If you can watch this movie without shedding a tear (or two), well, you’re just not human.
