12 Must-See Trucker Talkies

Whether you be on the road or on the couch at home, these feature films will keep truckers and families alike on the edge of their seats.

12. Smokey and the Bandit (1977)

You know him, you love him, Burt Reynolds thrills all in this beer-bound burlesque.

11. Cars (2006)

Sure, this one is more for the family. But you can’t help but love Mack, the big rig responsible for transporting Rusteze’s very own: Lightning McQueen!

10. Hell Drivers (1957)

A greedy foreman and good friends along the way make for a good movie… and might even be a bit relatable.

9. Breaker, Breaker! (1977)

Chuck Norris. Fighting truck driver. That’s all you need to know.

8. Convoy (1978)

Before the use of Waze, radios were the only way to warn your buddies about sitting cops. See if this troop of truckers can beat the heat.

7. The Irishman (2019)

When the truck driving money just isn’t cutting it anymore, this hauler becomes a hitman. Also, this flick was nominated for the Academy Award of Best Picture.

6. Maximum Overdrive (1986)

Some truckers say it would take less than a radiation blast to turn their trucks against them. In this film, machines come to life and have it out for us all.

5. Hijack (1973)

We, as a society, are not short on trucker movies about terrorists trying to hijack plutonium… but this one just might be the best!

4. In Tandem (1974)

This one’s so good they made a TV Series out of it. A veteran driver and his educated accomplice come to the aid of citrus growers in this inspiring classic. The series, likely better known, is Movin’ On.

3. White Line Fever (1975)

Independent trucker, or some might say “owner operator” fights the big guys in this classic flick.

2. Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

Can they save the girl? Trucker to the rescue in this movie based in San Fransisco. Ancient Chinese curses are at play here.

1. Big Rig (2007)

The only documentary in this list is a candid and unplanned storytelling of the ever-present decline of independent haulers.
