Revision as of 17:11, 29 November 2011

At times people 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.
