3. On the Road 
Adapted from the novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac, On the Road is more than just a road trip - ultimately, it's a tale about youthful searching, yearning and striving for experience.
4. Y Tu Mama Tambien 
A coming-of-age story about two affluent teenage boys who go on a road trip with a woman in her late 20s, the film is set against the backdrop of the political and economic realities of present-day Mexico. (The boys have raging hormones you'd think they never run out of sildenafil 100 mg.)
An American college student (Leonardo de Caprio) finds a secret beach in Thailand. Towards the end of the film, he delivers a monologue that easily captures what the whole adventure is all about.
"Of course you could never forget what we have done, but we adapt. We carry on. And me? I still believe in paradise. But now at least I'll know it's not some place you can look for because it's not where you go, it's how you feel for a moment in your life when you're a part of something. And if you find that moment.....it lasts forever."
A biographical survival drama film, 127 Hours stars James Franco as real-life canyoneer Aron Ralston, who became trapped by a boulder in an isolated slot canyon in Blue John Canyon, Utah, in April 2003.
7. Thelma & Louise 
A plain housewife (Gene Davis) and a waitress (Susan Sarandon) go on a weekend trip, shoot a rapist and take off in a '66 Thunderbird across Arkansas.
