      Overall, the cinematic adaptation is almost a direct translation of the book, something that rarely happens when books are converted into movies. However, there are a few subtle differences fans were quick to point out. With that, here are 5 key differences between The Road, the book and the film, and 5 things the movie got exactly right.   Twenty-five years ago today, Thelma and Louise jumped behind the wheel in search of a little freedom, and the result was one of the best-reviewed (and most popular) road trip movies of the last quarter-century. To celebrate its anniversary, we've compiled a list of audience-tested and critic-approved road trip movies that'll keep you going for hours.

      Hollywood sports films often ignore facts in favor of plot, and the new hit Glory Road is no exception. Chicago Sun-Times columnist Ron Rapoport and John Ydstie talk about basketball movies.   The following road trip horror movies prove that sometimes, the open road can be a path straight to hell. Filled with violent hitchhikers, cannibalistic locals, maniacal truckers, and sadistic serial killers, these movies will make you think twice before letting wanderlust get the best of you.

      I haven’t seen the movie yet. We bought the DVD about 6 months ago, after I’d read and loved the book. Unlike so many others, I found that The Road was a book that left me with a renewed faith in the human spirit. Others find it bleak and oppressing.   A modest but real box office hit, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure was also a critical rallying point: There is an urban legend that Kael tried to get the New York Film Critics Circle to vote it for Best.
