More trivia for Joy Ride

Question: Why was the name of this movie changed from Joy Ride in the US to Roadkill in Australia and UK? Can't be due to different meanings of "joy riding", as that's the same in the US and UK.

Answer: I'm from Ireland, but I would guess that the name change is due to the changing attitude of people in those countries (and in Ireland too) to the term "joy riding". Whenever it is used in the media here it is generally preceded with the term "so-called" or it it is surrounded by inverted commas to indicate irony. This reflects the increasing disapproval of the term by the public. The term is used reluctantly and only because it is so well established.
