There will always be naysayers when it comes to On the Road, the approaching film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel. With the novel itself being a pretty controversial topic, Kerouac’s devotees might think the film will fall short, while Kerouac’s adversaries might call it an unworthy attempt to begin with.

Is this On the Road movie a fruitful endeavor, the degradation of a modern classic, or just a waste of time?
