Honky Tonk Freeway
It's vacation time, and carloads of Americans are making their way to Florida in relentless pursuit of a good time; among the travellers are an aspiring children's author, a couple of bank-robbers, an elderly lady with a drink problem and two nuns. They little realise they're about to be caught up in a small-time mayor's madcap scheme to turn his neglected town into a tourist trap!
Directed by Oscar winner John Schlesinger and starring William Devane, Beau Bridges, Beverly D'Angelo, Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, Honky Tonk Freeway has divided critical opinion like few other films since its initial release in 1981.
Now widely recognised as an affectionate, exuberant satire on America's undying love affair with all things on wheels, this British-produced roadside farce is wildly good-natured and outrageously entertaining. It is presented here in a brand-new digital transfer, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
