Families or friends are traveling in the car, the RV or even on a bus. Some of the movies are classics and some are just plain crazy. We all have our own travel stories where we learn something or experience something strange. You may even be thankful that your trips are uneventful.  The one thing that movies and our experiences while traveling in the car is we all get closer through our travels.
