Next Monday Mr. Nina and I leave on a 10 day driving trip. So what could I do this week but honor 13 of my favorite roadtrip movies. Yes it’s true, most of them I saw in their original version at the theater. But I refuse to think I’m old … though did I mention Mr. Nina and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary while on the road? Really, I’m not old. (My new mantra.) Oh, and the pictures have nothing to do with the movies. I just thought it was time to post some man candy.
1. National Lampoons Family Vacation (1983)
Think this group would adopt me?
2. The Wizard of Oz (1939)
Now this is one group I’d happily follow down the yellow brick road.
3. Smokey and the Bandit (1977)
Oh Mama, this is one bandit who speaks for himself!
4. Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987)
And here’s some pilots that can take me anywhere.
5. Easy Rider (1967)
Ummm … yeah, he would be.
6. Into the Wild (2007)
The country doesn’t look so lonely from this perspective.
7. Pee Wee’s Big Adventure (1985)
I don’t know about a missing bike, but I’d like to know what’s missing under this guy’s kilt.
8. It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (remake 1970)
(But a drink with him could make it alllll better.)
9. Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
That’s MR. Sunshine to you!
10. Cannonball Run (1981)
A race with this guy in the car … count me in!
11. Thelma and Louise (1991)
No woman in her right mind would leave this guy behind!
12. Paper Moon (1973)
This guy could talk me into any con.
13. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001-2003)
And yes, I would go to the ends of the earth with these three!
