The call of the open road carries with it a certain cinematic quality, which is probably why there is such an abundance of road trip movies. Whether it’s a Buddy movie, some sort of Rom Com that shows a fated couple sharing a car for days or some sort of fugitives hitting the highway, the road trip movie is one of the best movie sub-genres there is for a reason: because of there is always a story to tell, no matter where you are going and who is with you.
When you’ve got John Candy and Steve Martin as headliners, you know you’ve got a funny show on your hands. Throw in inclement weather, the deadline of an approaching holiday and the combination of a bumbling, good-hearted fool coupled with an exasperated traveler stranded against his will, you get this classic travel flick. One of the most memorable scenes from this movie involves Martin and Candy driving (in the “automobile” portion of the film) the wrong way on an airplane runway. As passersby try to alert the duo that they are going the wrong way on a collision course, Candy famously says, “How do they know which way I’m going?”
This iconic flick features the ultra-family vacation, led by the fearless (if not clueless) Clark Griswald (Chevy Chase) who takes his family cross country to visit Wally World (aka Disney World). It is a great parody on those family road trips (are we there yet) that we’ve all been on, complete with colorful stops along the way: visits with weird, distant relatives, staying at grungy motels and driving off the road. One of the most classic series of scenes in this movie feature Chevy Chase’s character having several flirty, but goofy encounters with the super-glam Christie Brinkley.
