This post is a day late going up for the excellent to my mind reason that I just got home from a driving trip to Colorado. My excuse is the prompt for this month’s discussion topic: road trip movies.
Here I’m defining a road trip movie as a movie with a story built around a journey and the things the characters experience along the way- comic misadventures, personal growth, group bonding, being chased by determined pursuers, etc.
Answer one, some, or all of these questions about road trip movies:
Most closely resembles your personal experience?
Best exemplifies the essence of the genre?
Captures the spirit of America (or your country of choice)?
The movie you watch before you leave on a trip?
The movie you watch when you get back?
The road trip you wish you’d been on?
