Written by mighway

While we’re in lockdown, there’s no better time to binge watch great movies and television series. And, since we can’t travel, we decided to put together a list of good road trip movies on Netflix, to inspire your next journey. We believe these are truly some of the best movies on Netflix too! Time to start ticking them off one by one!

1.Dirty Grandpa

Firstly, it’s not hard to convince all the ladies to watch this movie. American hunk Zac Efron and Robert De Niro take the lead in ‘Dirty Grandpa’. This film alone will be enough to inspire a road trip with a family member!

‘Dirty Grandpa’ provides a good laugh, especially as Dick (Robert De Niro) take centre stage. Jason Kelly (Zac Efron), an uptight lawyer is set to marry his boss’s controlling daughter. But, his grandfather Dick knows better than to let him go into a loveless relationship, so he tricks him into a road trip to Daytona Beach, Florida. The rest is for you to find out!

2.The Bucket list

Starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, the ‘Bucket List’ is an emotional yet feel good movie. Two terminally ill men have been given six months left to live, but, that doesn’t stop them. The story follows them as they take their lives by the lead and make a bucket list of all the things they have never tried. The ‘Bucket List’ is a must-watch, offering plenty of laughs and a few tears.

3.Into the Wild

This 2007 biographical adventure film was co-produced, written, and directed by Sean Penn. ‘Into the Wild’ follows Christopher McCandless as he hikes across North America and into the Alaskan wilderness.

In the early 1990’s, Christopher McCandless, a top student and athlete, abandons his possessions, gives his life savings to charity and starts his journey. He lives in the wilderness and meets people who change his life forever. We rate this as a good road trip movie on Netflix to watch.

4.The Guilt Trip

Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen take centre stage in this comedy. Andy Brewster (Rogen) is an inventor, travelling the country and trying to sell his latest creation to investors. During his travels, he visits his mums house and ends up inviting her along for the ride. Follow their unexpected cross-country journey and watch out for the bumps in the road!

5.Dumb and Dumber

This 1994 comedy follows two simple friends, Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) on their journey across the country. The men begin their adventure in Rhode Island, winding up in Aspen, Colrado. There’s plenty of money, ransoms and mistakes involved. It’s a must-watch film!

These are just five good road trip movies on Netflix that we recommend watching. They will be enough to inspire your next journey and potentially make you think twice about who you go with!
