Ahh, the cinematic open road. Even though you're sitting comfortably in your living room, a good road trip movie will make it seem as though you've replaced your recliner with a motorcycle or your couch with a getaway car. Of course, like any real-life road trip, you can easily take a wrong turn and end up in a bad-movie traffic jam, but we're not going to let that happen.

Like a top-of-the-line GPS, we'll help you navigate past all the celluloid detours and direct you to the best road trip movies of all time. We'll shift gears between killers on the lam, drifting bikers, a wayward family vacation and a group of traveling puppets. There'll be comedy, action and drama before you reach the end of your journey. Just don't forget to wipe the bug guts off the seat cushions after you turn off the TV.
