Back Roads lacks originality and relies on the road trip movie genre. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

...Extremely appealing and occasionally gutsy and very funny....One of the most stylish comedies you'll ever see about the joys of third-ratedness.

Rating: 2/4 -- It's a surprise to discover that this hackneyed, relatively dull road picture is the work of director Martin Ritt. Full Review

Very good on local colour but a bit sugary in its attitude to the central relationship, it would have been better taking a bleaker cue from Tommy Lee Jones' admirably dry performance.

...Ritt has created a gritty atmosphere of 'back road' realism throughout. He has also gotten nice performances out of Field and Jones...

Rating: 3/5 -- Less a movie than an extended sketch, and it's to the credit of Mr. Ritt, his stars and Gary Devore, the screenwriter, that the movie is so much fun.

Despite the efforts of the two talented leads, their central relationship fails to ignite, while the comedy is lacklustre at best. Full Review
