You're just a sh*t-stain on the panties of life.
23 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Taking time out from the John Wayne Marathon for a public service. In anticipation of our favorite heiress going to jail next month, I wanted something that she might watch to give her an idea of what to expect, I found this movie with some bizarre characters like Wendy Williams, lead singer for the infamous 80s punk rock band, 'The Plasmatics,' who committed suicide a few years ago. She was absolutely beyond belief as she paraded the entire movie in leather or panties, and even a thong at the end.

Of course there was Sybil Danning, from the Grindhouse segment Werewolf Women of the SS as the bible-spouting Warden, who looked the part of an SS She-Wolf.

Pat Ast was the 350-lb matron who burned a bunny, stomped on a kitten and got justice for her evil laugh.

There were two shower scenes and one Rambo-type fire hose scene that was way more cool that Rambo: First Blood.

Food fights, girl fights, riots, and bra and panties for most of the movie. Our little heiress should get a good taste of prison life with this film.
