Best Limo Scenes in Movies

There are certain scenes that tend to be universal in movies. Depending on how creative the script is, however, even predictable setups can become a memorable movie moment. Limo service is a popular occurrence in film and the following scenes all take place in a limo, yet each of these movie moments stands out for one reason or another, regardless of its importance to the plot. That said, here are some of the best limo scenes in movies:

2012 (2009)

If the world is going to end, you might as well go out in style. While this isn't the intent of the movie, which capitalized on the hype surrounding the end of the Mayan calendar, it certainly is a startling contrast to the chaos going on in the background. Since this is an action movie, it's no surprise that John Cusack ends up careening through the streets and showing off some impressive driving skills while behind the wheel of a Lincoln Town Car stretch limo.

Arthur (1981)

The title character is transported around New York City by his chauffeur, Mr. Bitterman. Many areas of the city are on display as Arthur (Dudley Moore), the spoiled drunk struggling with various issues with a touch of comedy, tries to keep his promise to marry a woman he believes will help him finally grow up. After Arthur decides not to marry Susan and risk losing his inheritance by proclaiming his love for Linda (Liza Minnelli), the couple enjoys a limo ride through Central Park as the film ends.

Home Alone 2 (1992)

Kevin McCallister's (Macaulay Culkin) latest romp without supervision takes him to New York City, where there are a few memorable limo scenes among the hijinks in this sequel. Before sentiment sets in, the precocious child convinces the hotel staff to arrange a limo ride. He takes advantage of some of the amenities that come along with riding in the back of chauffeur-driven limo, including using a car phone (it was the early '90s) and snacking on a pizza while sipping on some soda. One of his first stops is, of course, a toy store.

Dumb & Dumber (1994)

The road-trip buddy film, considered by some to be a '90s comedy classic, follows the misadventures of two dimwitted friends (Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels) who travel to Aspen, Colorado, to return a suitcase full of money. The notable limo scene occurs early in the movie when Lloyd (Carrey), who happens to be a limousine driver, stops to seek directions from a passing pedestrian. He also becomes instantly smitten with a woman he's taking to the airport. She leaves the suitcase behind, which initially sets up the basic premise of the movie.

Pretty Woman (1990)

Since Richard Gere's ruthless businessman's preferred mode of transportation is a limo, there are a few limo scenes scattered throughout this iconic '90s romantic comedy. The most memorable scene, however, comes at the end when Mr. Lewis leaps from his chauffeur-driven white limousine with a bouquet of roses. The limo is intended to represent Vivian's (Julia Roberts) ideal fairytale romance where her knight in shining armor declares his love for her. He calls Vivian up and proclaims his love from the limo before heading up the fire escape to seal the deal with a kiss.
