Sold as a Women-In-Prison movie but the title should've been "Bimbos Can Be Revolutionaires Too"!
16 October 1999 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

If you expect sweaty chicks behind bars you're in for a major dissapointment.

The gals spend like one minute in the "hot box". Some third world rebels kipnap 4 American nurses to help their revolution. At first they protest but later they "wake up" and start diggin' the rebels' political aim. Jonathan Demme, who scripted this, has made some fun Women-In-Prison flicks for Roger Corman like "Caged Heat" and "Black Mama, White Mama" but this halfbaked "Exploitation With A Cause" is pretty boring despite massive doses of nudity and decent acting.

People who saw this at a drive-in in the early 70's must've been a bit confused.
