Interstate 60 is another off the beaten track movie I can recommend. From one of the co-producers/writers of the "Back To The Future" movies it has that same sort of essence, visual feel to it and pure popcorn entertainment value, but with an interesting thread of a message, and some outrageous characters. It's been a while since I've seen the movie but there are plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested. It has an outstanding group of actors who star in and make cameo's and that keeps the element of the movie fresh. A typical road story about a road that doesn't exist it has a certain smartness to it that Gary Oldman and Chris Cooper bring to every movie. The subject matter may not be entirely suitable for the pre-teens (a little racier than the Back To The Future movies) and it is not nor is it trying to be Citizen Kane. Rent it from Net Flix. It's great light entertainment that may actually do it for you if you let it.
