Jane DeLuca (Whoopi Goldberg), Holly Pulchik (Drew Barrymore) and Robin Nickerson (Mary-Louise Parker) accidentally commit a crime, then end up on the lam in this road comedy. They embark on a cross-country journey that helps them develop something they've never really known before: a sense of belonging and friendship.
Mary-Louise Parker lost 20 pounds to play her AIDS-stricken character.
This movie is not a collection of parts from other films. It's an original, and what it does best is show how strangers can become friends, and friends can become like family. Reviewed by: Roger Ebert of The Chicago Sun-Times.
The movie is generally entertaining, if only because the three primary characters capture the audience's sympathy, but the story doesn't contain much honest drama. Reviewed by: James Berardinelli of Reel Views.
An irresistible blend of laughter and tears... a richly textured script that is strongly character driven, sensitive and plain-out funny. Reviewed by: The Hollywood Reporter
