Story | Apr 26, 2013 | 2:08 PMRoad pictures come, off the shelf, with an automatic story arc: the characters must get from point A to point B, not just geographically but thematically. More often than not, they end up at a different point B than they had intended or hoped for. The genre is available in three major flavors: person or persons on the run from pursuers (cops, gangsters, or both); unlikely heroes desperately trying to deliver something (like the rare vaccine for a pandemic); romantic comedy odd couple thrown together by chance, then learning how to get along. Some films manage to do all three at once. The most perfect examples are "The 39 Steps" and "North by Northwest"; "Midnight Run" is close, if you consider "bromance" a subset of "romance."
