Freeway is far from a perfect film but well worth seeing, even for those who don't count themselves as fans of Witherspoon.

The greatness of [Matthew] Bright's storytelling lies in his sympathy and admiration for his characters, especially his Red Riding Hood.
March 6, 2011
Darkly humorous, witty and nasty, Freeway is an original take on the Red Riding Hood fairytale, featuring a wonderful performance by the teenage Reese Witherspoon, before she became a star

[The] characters are crisp and fascinating, and the movie has a great anything-can-happen B-movie excitement feel to it.
February 13, 2008
One of the most stubbornly original and electrifying films not only of 1996, but of the '90s, period.

There's not much edification in store, and [director] Bright cruises over some bumpy plot holes, but the teen's perspective does put a black comic spotlight on wider social hypocrisies.

It's just the sort of thing Oliver Stone strove so hard to achieve in Natural Born Killers, and [writer/director Matthew] Bright pulls it off effortlessly.

Freeway somehow manages to be hip, imaginative and hilarious. Road film, comedy, prison drama and Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers all rolled into one.

I didn't particularly want to like Freeway, but I couldn't help myself. Reese Witherspoon made me.

'Little Red Riding Hood,' my, how you've grown...

Cynical, stylish and witty.

Rude in the way the truth is rude -- only funnier.
