Watched this hard-to-find DVD years ago and still remember the graphic violence in this crime drama, and how shocked I was hearing the most foul curses coming out of the tiny teenager Witherspoon who was barely 20 in 1996, unimaginable against her sweet characters in "Legally Blonde" and "Sweet Home Alabama". From wiki, critics loved it for what it was - a slutty teen meets a sadistic serial killer:

The film was received positively by most critics, who lauded the film's hard-edged satire and performances. Film critic Roger Ebert gave Freeway three and a half stars out of four and stated, "like it or hate it (or both), you have to admire its skill, and the over-the-top virtuosity of Reese Witherspoon and Kiefer Sutherland." It received "Two Thumbs Up" on Siskel and Ebert At the Movies. Joe Baltake of The Sacramento Bee gave Freeway four stars out of four and called it "a wild, audacious drive-in attraction that takes the 'high' from 'highbrow' and the 'low' from 'lowdown' and shakes them up". Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle gave Freeway four stars out of four and said that it was "rude in the way the truth is rude—only funnier". Margaret A. McGurk wrote for the Cincinnati Enquirer that "I didn't particularly want to like Freeway, but I couldn't help myself. Reese Witherspoon made me."

Not what I expected.

Plenty in IMDb, e.g.:

Vanessa: When a guy does that and hurts someone who never hurt them, that makes him a criminal first and a sick guy second. It's like being sick has to take second place to being crooked. And Bob, you're crooked. You proved that to me tonight.
Rhonda: I don't get how a person could go through their whole lives never being into girls. I just... I love girls.
Vanessa: You can keep 'em.
Vanessa: He had this disease, called, um, Wisenheimers, I think. You know, where your brain cells run out into your pee.
Vanessa: So what you think it's OK do all sorts of bad stuff to me now?
Bob Wolverton: Well that's an open ended discussion Vanessa dealing with deep philosophical ramifications, something you can hardly grasp. In fact take it from me a professional Vanessa, you're an absolute fxcking moron!
