Carpooling Cinema


If you’ve gone on a road trip (or for a quick bite to eat on a particularly sunny day), I’m sure of a few things:

  1. You had your favorite, most up-beat playlist blasting

  2. You had all of your windows down, so your fellow drivers could hear said playlist

  3. You probably did -or at least thought about doing- the classic single hand wave motion out your window


Now, if you haven’t in fact done any of these things, you have at the very least seen a combination of the three on almost every road trip film in existence.

Here’s a list of the best road trip movies in existence (according to me).


1. Crossroads

Now this might be one of the most cliche road trip movies there are. Three friends go on a cross-country road trip to rediscover their friendship. To top it all off, it’s starring Britney Spears.

2. Little Miss Sunshine

A dysfunctional family piles into a VW bus and heads to California to support their daughter (Abigail Breslin) in her Little Miss Sunshine Contest.



3. College Road Trip

A hyper-protective father drives his teenage daughter, from their home in Chicago to a college interview in Washington, D.C and along the way, there’s chaos.


4. Harold and Kumar go to White Castle

Two friends find themselves craving White Castle. Convinced there must be one nearby, the two set out on a late-night odyssey that takes them deep into New Jersey


5. The Motorcycle Diaries

This one’s a little less cliche. Ernesto "Che" Guevara travels with his friend Alberto Granado from Brazil to Peru by motorcycle and witness great disparities along the way.


6. RV

A father rents a motorhome to take his family on vacation but soon finds that camping and togetherness can be be a lot more complicated than planned.


7. A Goofy Movie

Now this one, is a childhood favorite. Max's trouble at school convinces Goofy that he and the boy need to bond over a cross-country fishing trip like the one he took with his dad when he was Max's age.  10/10 Recommend.


8. We’re the Millers

This is one of the most hilarious road trip movies of this decade. Trying to settle his debt, David packs a fake family into a huge RV and heads south of the border for a wild weekend.


9. Thelma and Louise

Two best friends, Thelma and Louise, decide to flee to Mexico after shooting and killing a man. It’s a movie full of adventure, friendship, and women empowerment.


10. Are We There Yet?

Now this is a timeless classic. We get a paternal Ice Cube forced to drive the kids in his prized Lincoln Navigator. Tensions inevitably rise during the long road trip with lots of humor along the way.
