Restored in 4K! Something Funny Is Happening on This Freeway! From John Schlesinger, the legendary director of Midnight Cowboy, The Day of the Locust, Marathon Man, The Falcon and the Snowman and The Believers, comes this hilarious road comedy with an all-star cast. Welcome to Ticaw, Florida, a tiny town just off the highway with big dreams of attracting huge tourist dollars. But when construction of the new freeway leaves them without a crucial exit ramp, the desperate townsfolk decide to take motor matters into their own hands. Now with the help of a water-skiing elephant, a rampaging rhino, some well-placed explosives and an invasion of very odd travelers, this busy freeway is about to take one extremely strange detour. Starring Beau Bridges (The Landlord), Hume Cronyn (Lifeboat), Beverly D’Angelo (Finders Keepers), William Devane (Rolling Thunder), George Dzundza (Basic Instinct), Teri Garr (Miracles), Howard Hesseman (Amazon Women on the Moon), Geraldine Page (The Beguiled), David Rasche (Delirious), Daniel Stern (The Milagro Beanfield War) and Jessica Tandy (Still of the Night).
