FREEWAY (1996) ***

Oliver Stone produced this modern twist on Little Red Riding Hood set in L.A. Reese Witherspoon stars as a trailer trash trick baby who meets serial killer Keifer Sutherland on the freeway. She shoots him full of holes and goes to juvee hall. When she gets out, he’s waiting for her. While it doesn’t always hit the mark, it’s entertaining and has a great cast (including Dan Hedaya, Amanda Plummer, Brittany Murphy and Brooke Shields). I can’t stand Witherspoon’s romantic comedies, but she’s pretty great in this. Writer/director Matthew Bright also co-wrote Forbidden Zone. Followed by Freeway 2: Confessions of a Teenage Trick Baby.
