Ringleader Bob Hughes (Matt Dillon), along with his wife (Kelly Lynch) and underlings Rick (James Le Gros) and Nadine (Heather Graham), takes the show on the road after things get too hot at home.

2. Exiles (2004 French drama by Tony Gatlif)
In this French drama, two Parisian lovers (Romain Duris and Lubna Azabal) decide to move to Algeria and reconnect with their roots. They travel slowly, moving across three countries by foot, train and hitched rides. En route, they meet many people, including a helpful Algerian couple (Leila Makhlouf and Habib Cheik). When they finally arrive, the culturally naive pair find themselves in a country that fascinates them -- but feels truly foreign.

Master thief Carter 'Doc' McCoy (Steve McQueen) and his wife, Carol (Ali MacGraw), escape with the loot from a botched robbery.

5. Fandango (1985 comedy directed by Kevin Reynolds)
