  1. What's immediately apparent -- and refreshing -- about Chasing Liberty is that it doesn't play cute with its premise.
  2. As it turns out, "Liberty," a likable, light-as-air road comedy, is a much better movie than its sour-pun title.

    Inoffensive adolescent escapism laced with surprising amounts of genuine charm.
  4. Will probably win over as many fuddy-duddy fathers as fillies with its mixture of sweetness tempered with genial cynicism.
  5. 63
    Chasing Liberty is not daring or adventurous, but, considering its release date (early January), it's more palatable than one might anticipate.
  6. Boasts exceedingly high levels of improbability and an embarrassment of continuity and character shortfalls, but still has a certain bubbleheaded charm.
  7. Lighthearted fluff, not piercing drama. Still, a little shot of reality -- or at least an acknowledgement of same -- could have done this film wonders.

    Its a wholesome movie, It doesn't try too hard, and it ain't that boring either.
