Eight Great Road Trip Comedy Movies

I’m not the biggest fan of flying and when I have it my way I generally prefer to drive to whatever destination I’m going to than fly.   Granted I won’t do week long road trips all that often but when I have the chance to I usually like to do them.

And while we’re on that topic, the road trip has always been a great movie topic and today I’d like to focus on road trip movies that were particularly funny.

Here are eight you should all see at some point..

Midnight Run


This is one of my favorite movies that involves Charles Grodin.  Personally I think this is the best role he’s ever been in.   An extremely uptight, smart, and smart assy accountant who gives his bounty hunter (Da Niro) and extremely hard time on an unforgettable road trip that includes the FBI and the mob.

Road Trip


I think this is one of those movies that gets overlooked by the likes of movies like American Pie or the Old School’s of the world.   Still though, it’s a really funny flick.  And let’s not forget that this is ultimate Seann William Scott in his major Stiffler days.   Plus you got a really funny Tom Green and a total loser in Breckin Meyer.   Plus that old guy who gets high?  Great stuff.

Little Miss Sunshine


A family determined to get their young daughter into the finals of a beauty pageant take a cross-country trip in their VW bus.  Oh and with a dead person in the van mind you (eventually).    This is Steve Carell’s early “acting” work where you saw him starting to become a decent performer other than comedy.   Alan Arkin was amazing and the whole family dynamic was hilarious.

Borat


I wasn’t a big fan of Bruno at all but Borat on the other hand?  This was one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen.  Honestly I don’t know how much of this movie was real and how much was fake but I really didn’t care.   Those who were offended by this film took it WAY too seriously and if you could just step back and take it for what it was it was a tear inducing comedy.
