Last week while my husband was out golfing, I watched Take Me Home, an uplifting road trip movie that I really enjoyed (free on Amazon prime).
road trip is difficult every step of the way, with Thom hiding all
sorts of secrets (like his real name and the fact that it isn't even a
legitimate cab), and Claire hiding secrets of her own while she
struggles internally with both her relationship with her husband and
with her father. They stop in Las Vegas to see Claire's mom and
eventually make it to California, with more than a few rough spots along
the way! And, of course, as the trip continues, they gradually get to
know each better.
I was in the mood for a romantic
comedy, so this fit the bill, and I'm a sucker for a road trip movie. We
used to take a 3-week road trip cross-country every summer and didn't
get much of a vacation this year, so I was drooling over the travel
scenes! All in all, it's a fun movie about struggling with your personal
demons and figuring out what you want out of life. I enjoyed it.
NOTE: I just discovered - thanks to IMDB,
that amazing store of entertainment information! - that Claire was
played by Amber Jaeger, who is married to Sam Jaeger, who not only stars
in this movie but also wrote it and directed it. Cool.
Have you seen any good movies lately? What's your favorite road trip movie?
