The summertime is always when most get the itch to set out on the open road and do some traveling.
Hollywood has always had a soft spot for road trip movies, and some have become memorable not just for what was shown on screen, but what the spirit of the movie meant for the people who saw them. Take “Easy Rider” for example, whose no-rules approach launched a new way movies were made for decades.
Here are 23 road trip movies you should check out before heading on your own adventure:
“Almost Famous” (2000)
Cameron Crowe’s love letter to the 1970s rock and roll scene, which he covered as a writer for Rolling Stone, is a fun look at adolescence, fame, and highlights the non-stop grind of a band being “on the road.”
“The Blues Brothers” (1980)
John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd play two brothers on a mission from God. Trying to get on the straight-and-narrow after getting out of prison, Jake Blues (Belushi) and his brother Elwood (Aykroyd) decide to help raise the money the Catholic home they were raised in needs to stay open. That leads to a road trip around Illinois to get the band back together.
“Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” (2006)
20th Century Fox
With the help of director Larry Charles, Sacha Baron Cohen creates one of the funniest road trip movies ever made as he takes his character, Borat, to America to marry Pamela Anderson. But in the process, the movie highlights the US itself, as Borat travels the country doing everything from singing the Kazakhstan national anthem at a rodeo to hanging out with some fraternity kids.
