On the Road is an adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s famous novel of the same name, in which a young man travels the many roads and rails of America. The film is getting lots of buzz lately because apparently Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst have a few naked scenes in the film, and sexy moments. Kristen Stewart apparently gives double handjobs, is naked often.. and Dunst has many suggestive scenes as well.
I think it’s like the hippy Bible.
On the Road was written in three weeks on a single typewriter scroll, although that is partly legend, as Kerouac had numerous notebooks and had jotted down quite a bit of the story beforehand. Kerouac was a big fan of jazz, and the style of the book was said to be inspired by the improvisational nature of the music. The story is largely autobiographical, although names were changed to protect the innocent. Wait, isn’t that America’s Most Wanted?
Anyways, the characters go cross country, doing drugs and having an adventure. Hippies.
On The Road
Dean and Sal (The two main characters) are the portrait of the Beat Generation. Their search for “It” results in a fast paced, energetic roller coaster ride with highs and lows throughout the U.S. The boys roll through the heartland, picking up women along the way. Dunst and Stewart not only provide verbal companionship, but give the boys sexual favours along the way. Because this is what young teenage girls do while hitching a ride, at least in a Hollywood movie, or Penthouse letter.
Oddly, it appears On the Road has never been directly adapted to film before. No doubt numerous films have been inspired by the story, but this version, starring Kristen Stewart, from Twilight (I know), will be, without question, THE definitive version. Walter Salles is directing a screenplay by Jose Rivera. Salles directed The Motorcycle Diaries, so he knows about traveling and diaries n’ stuff. I am so professional.

What’s Good About It?
On the Road is a classic, and no doubt it’ll be a point of interest for the many fans of the book. Nudity – On The Road has a ton of it. We get to see Kirsten Stewart’s boobs.
What’s Bad About It?
Kristen Stewart, by her nature, lessens the quality of the movie. We get to see Kirsten Stewart’s boobs.
Our Clever Prediction
I do like that Jack Kerouac was later pretty open about how much he disliked hippies, even though he was largely responsible for their lifestyle, and many followed in his footsteps. It makes me want to see the film. But I don’t think it’ll be particularly well received. It was in a different time. Under the Boardwalk. Huh? What? Why did you make me say that? That doesn’t make any sense at all. You’re weird. Shut up.
