Critic Reviews for Free Ride

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (6)

  • It's unspeakably depressing to see Anna Paquin playing the mom (of a teenager!), but the pointlessness and mediocrity of the Paquin-produced "Free Ride" is even more depressing.

  • The result, while sincere and nicely evoked, feels choppy, familiar and, despite the script's heavily stacked deck - and a few harrowing episodes - lacks sufficient momentum.

    January 9, 2014 | Full Review…
  • From top to bottom, it feels authentic, and its laid-back, nonjudgmental tone evokes the easygoing world of Jimmy Buffett songs celebrating how changes in latitude bring changes in attitude.

  • While this true-life odyssey should be the basis for a compelling drama or even a taut thriller, slack direction and a weak screenplay undermine the plot's inherent tension.

    January 9, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • In between bizarrely low-octane moments of authorities circling the ring, the soulful up-and-comer crafts a far more perilous tale, one of a teenage caretaker getting a crash course in growing up too fast, too soon.

    January 8, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Shana Betz's too-insistent refusal to commit to the melodramatic or to the suspenseful only makes the film seem like empty dramatization.

    Really can't fault the 70's look and feel this movie had - really convincing to the era! The movie felt a little thin and patchy, but I liked the reveal at the end. I don't know that I quite liked the mothers will do what they have to do rationalising at the end - sorry, I would rather be a poor cleaner than try and take the "easy" road personally, but it's a true story, and that's someone's own feelings, so I'm not going to comment too much on that.
