"The Wizard of Oz" has the distinction of being named No.1 on the American Film Institute's list of the 10 greatest films in the genre "Fantasy" as well as one of "The 20 Most Overrated Movies Of All Time" by Premiere. But it's also the ultimate road trip movie (even if the road is made from yellow bricks). Dorothy Gale's journey to the Land of Oz is as entertaining as it is fantastic, and though the classic flick was released in 1939, its popularity lives on as each generation discovers it. It's perfect for both adults and munchkins alike, and between cinema's most famous witch, an imposter wizard, some flying monkeys and the most memorable supporting cast in cinema history, "The Wizard of Oz" takes you on a classic road trip.
