Movies to Drive Home the Holidays

I went and saw Dumb and Dumber To last week and, with the exception of adumb 2 couple of really awkward scenes, I really enjoyed it. So naturally I re-watched the original, being my all-time favorite comedy and found it just as funny as it was twenty years ago and Harry and Lloyd graced the world with their stupidity.

With Thanksgiving approaching, I made it a point to also watch another favorite, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. At about the part where Steve Martin’s rental car isn’t in the parking lot and he starts throwing a fit chasing after the bus, I realized, I’ve really been watching a lot of road-trip movies lately. 

And then it made me think how appropriate a road trip movie is this time of year since road trips promote closeness and conversation… Or highway pranks, burnt cars, being sideswiped by semi trucks, going a sixth of the way in the wrong direction… Well, many just a lot of laughs.

I know there’s plenty others out there, but these are the ones I find myself returning to on a regular basis. Share your favorite below!
