Poll Results: Favorite Road Trip Movie

The Warning Sign is back! After a much-needed vacation followed by an insane work week, things should be back to normal over here starting today. First, here is the winner of last week’s poll:

Planes, Trains & Automobiles

– Planes, Trains & Automobiles: 5 votes
– Thelma & Louise: 3 votes
– Badlands: 2 votes
– Little Miss Sunshine: 2 votes
– The Muppet Movie: 2 votes
– Y Tu Mamá También: 2 votes
– Borat: 1 vote
– Easy Rider: 1 vote
– It Happened One Night: 1 vote
– The Motorcycle Diaries: 1 vote
– Rain Man: 1 vote
– Sideways: 1 vote
– Two-Lane Blacktop: 1 vote
– Vanishing Point: 1 vote
– Wild Strawberries: 1 vote

As expected, a lot of different films received votes in this poll, but the 1987 John Hughes fan favorite, Plains, Trains & Automobiles, got a well-earned victory here. I didn’t get to see that film until last year, but yeah, it’s a fun movie, and I can see why so many people still love it today. Nice voting, folks, and it’s nice that so many great road trip films were represented here.

This Week’s Poll: The latest Ron Howard film, Rush, has been out for a week now, and it has been getting a lot of positive buzz. In honor of this recent release, let’s take a look back at Howard’s extensive filmography. What are your two favorite Ron Howard directed films?

Have a great week everyone! It’s good to be back.

    Great to see Badlans and Thelma and Louise so high up! I vote for Frost/Nixon which is one of my all time favorites and Angels and Demons simply because I found it to be a good movie and probably nobody else shares that view 🙂

    Hi, Eric:

    I’m going with ‘Apollo 13’ and ‘a Beautiful Mind’ from Ron Howard.

    Not at all surprised ‘Planes, Trains & Automobiles’ won.

    Plains, Trains & Automobiles is a lot of fun, I especially like the scenes when they drive in the car.

    Ron Howard, Willow and Far & Away are guilty pleasures, Apollo 13 is well-made.

      Candy and Martin were a fun duo in PTA. Probably the last great film from John Hughes as well.

      I haven’t seen Willow in ages. I remember being ambivalent to it as a kid, but I’m curious what I would think of it now.
