* ThereAreNoTherapists: {{Averted}}. There are therapists but they're either malicious or unhelpful. Mr. Wolverton is a deliberate TakeThat to a lot of the quack pop-psychologists you'd find in Oprah-ish talk shows. Think [[DonnieDarko Jim Cunningham.]]

** The sequel is based on Hansel and Gretel



* InNameOnly: The sequel, so much that it was released as ''Confessions of a Trickbaby'' in certain regions. The only connections are that it's the same director and a small clip from the first film appears at one point.

A wildly hilarious take on juvenile delinquency, the film actually manages to make some [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped excellent points]] about the flaws of criminal investigations. But presumably because of Matthew Bright's friendship at the time with ChurchOfHappyology member [[Music/OingoBoingo Richard Elfman]], ''Freeway'' seems to preach on a ''little'' too much about the evils of psychiatry. Other than that, though, it's an excellent BlackComedy, full of clever dialogue and ''[[DannyElfman awesome]]'' music.

A sequel, ''Freeway 2: Confessions of a Trickbaby'', was made without any connections to... [[InNameOnly well, anything]]. It's actually pretty good [[LesYay and has more lesbians]]. And VincentGallo as a wicked witch.

* LittleDeadRidingHood: Vanessa goes through the first half of the movie with a red jacket; later she wears a red skirt. A deliberate {{shout out}} to Little Red Riding Hood which the movie is partially based on.

* GirlsBehindBars: Played with. On one side, you have the typical lesbian inmate Rhonda who hits on Vanessa. On the other hand, the [[AlphaBitch dominant]] Mesquita, who immediately provokes Vanessa to a physical fight over who's the baddest bitch, thus the one in command.
