The audience should join the 'Runaway Daughters' and flee from this film.
There might be better movies than “Rocky and Bullwinkle,” but this isn’t one of them. “Runaway Daughters” follows the supposedly comedic exploits of three high school girls who steal a car to find the boy that has allegedly impregnated one of them. Along the way, there is drinking, smoking, rape attempts by the police, capture and threat of torture by some commie-fearing men with guns and two murderers get killed. Sounds like a mad cap romp through the time that Sputnik was launched.
The characters are both ludicrous and ham-fisted stereotypes from out of every other movie anyone has ever seen that has been a high school, road trip or girl empowerment film. There is no place for anyone to move away from the stereotypes, which is okay because a standout performance from anyone in this film would have just underscored how bad it was.
For people who want to see a film with actors that are too old playing high schoolers, see “Grease.” “Thelma and Louise” is a better film for those who
Two minutes of this film might be too many, but if you like John Astin playing a crazy communist, here he is.
are interested in the empowerment of women, or for a documentary on women’s portrayals in media, see “Miss Representation.” For road trip films, there are many that are better. Choose the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy for a fantasy road trip bonanza.
The only thing that this film has to recommend it is that Julie Bowen and Paul Rudd play significant supporting roles. Film lovers should otherwise avoid this film. The laughs come from the absurdity more than anything else in it.
