At times people '''[[hitchhiking|hitchhike]] in movies'''. Some give a bad impression of hitchhiking, some are good. Some movies (such as ''The Hitcher'') have perpetuated a strong anti-hitchhiking attitude among more impressionable people.
==Good==These are the movies we like. Hitchhiking is fun, adventurous and lets people live their lives out of the ordinary.
