The great American road trip is a classic movie genre. Here are six our favorite to inspire your next journey.



Dumb and Dumber

This Jim Carrey classic follows Harry and Lloyd (Jeff Daniels) as they travel across the country to return a suitcase, getting into all sorts of hijinks in their 1984 sheepdog van.



Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Hunter S. Thompson’s surreal, drug-fueled escapade is adapted for the silver screen, starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro. The unpredictable story got mixed reviews upon release, but has since become a cult classic.




Sacha Baron Cohen’s mockumentary follows a politically incorrect reporter from Kazakhstan as he travels across the country to learn about America. While the plot is fake, the people he interacts with are unfortunately real.



Easy Rider

Dennis Hopper’s counter-culture classic follows two friends on motorcycles in search of the “real America.” Inspired by the youth culture of the ‘60s, the movie set out to depict the movement in a more truthful manner, devoid of its innocence.



Little Miss Sunshine

This indie darling from 2006 is a dark comedy about an offbeat family traveling in a VW bus to get their kid to a beauty pageant.



Mad Max: Fury Road

The latest edition of the post-apocalyptic series is essentially one long car chase, with a tyrannical ruler chasing after a group of runaways in a barren desert.
