The New York Times
It reimagines the buddy film with such freshness and vigor that the genre seems positively new.

Austin Chronicle
This is a movie to love, that touches you in places you never suspected, that shows you that the road less traveled is the road to your dreams.

Chicago Reader
Classic genre movies may be a scarce commodity, but this gutsy crime thriller and female buddy movie qualifies in spades.

Unabashed, streamlined entertainment, and you won't hate yourself in the morning for liking it.

Variety
Even those who don't rally to pic's fed-up feminist outcry will take to its comedy, momentum and dazzling visuals.

Sarandon and Davis give superb, wonderfully interactive performances: funky, fierce, funny and poignant. [27 May 1991]

Rolling Stone
Begins like an episode of "I Love Lucy" and ends with the impact of "Easy Rider."

Film Threat
Grade A propaganda of the first order.

A fun, breezy roadtrip across the Western landscape.
