Watching the Road: The Best Family Road Trip Movies

Nothing brings the family together like a roadtrip. When you're hitting the road with the family, pop one of these into the DVD player for the best in travel-themed movies for the whole family.

"The Muppet Movie" (1979)

Next time you and your gang of Muppets are "movin' right along," show them the first (and possibly best) Muppet movie. Join Kermit as he makes his way across the country in search of fame and fortune in Los Angeles. In his travels, Kermit meets comic genius Fozzie Bear, the lovely Miss Piggy, Animal, and the cast of characters we've come to love. And who can forget the song that touched us all, Kermit's rendition of "The Rainbow Connection?" It's the perfect movie for children young and old, human or Muppet.
