To help inspire you in these dark and cold winter months, we’ve put together our list of the top five road trip movies.
# 1 – Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987)
This movie reads more like a guide of what not to do on a road trip. But most importantly, it can remind us that the only way to have a successful trip is to have a sense of humor. Oh, and to never drive the wrong way on an interstate.
# 2 – Thelma And Louise (1991)
It’s somewhat unfortunate that this film only seems to be remembered for its very tragic and now iconic ending. Because otherwise, this road trip movie reveals what a truly meaningful road trip is—a journey within.
# 3 – Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
The Faris family is about the most dysfunctional family as we’ve ever seen onscreen. Their road trip sees them ultimately grow closer as a whole.
# 4 – Tommy Boy (1995)
A true comedy of errors, this movie sees Chris Farley and David Spade having misadventure after misadventure. The lesson we can take away is that they never give up and keep burning miles.
# 5 – Y Tu Mama Tambien (2001)
Two best friends take a transformational trip across the gorgeous Mexican countryside. Reminding us that every good trip is very much about the scenery.
