25 best road trip movies ever

Feel the call of the open road? Save yourself a call to the AA by driving to the video shop and renting one of these

Bombon: El Perro (2004)

One man and his dog hit the road in this humble Hispano-Argentine road movie about luck, fate and kindness. And the sex lives of dogs.

The Sure Thing (1985)

It’s not a bet. It’s a girl. And not the girl John Cusack has to share a ride with to get to the party. Think The African Queen on asphalt and you’re pretty much there.

More after the break...

Sideways (2004)

How anyone managed to successfully pitch a wine-tasting buddy movie we’ll never know. Thankfully, they did, and this rich caper though California’s vineyards is the result. Sales of merlot plummetted.

Zombieland (1988)

A kid called Columbus (played by Jesse “Zuckerberg” Eisenberg) emerges from a World of Warcraft marathon to find zombies have taken over America. When Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) shows up, Columbus joins his road-based quest for Twinkies and zombie annihilation.

Thelma & Louise (1991)

Ridley “Alien” Scott once again opts for talent over totty in Thelma & Louise. Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon go on the run in a ’66 Thunderbird convertible after killing a hillbilly. The, ahem, cliffhanger ending is the stuff of legend.
