When saloon prostitute Cody Zamora rescues her friend Anita from an abusive customer by killing him, she is sentenced to hang. However, Anita and their two friends Eileen and Lilly rescue Cody and the four make a run for Texas, pursued by Graves and O'Brady, two Pinkerton detectives hired to track them. When Cody withdraws her savings from a Texas bank, the women believe they can now start a new life in Oregon.

Law of the land was the cattle could roam whever they wanted to. See that barbed wire? It gave ranchers like Tucker a chance to start out without being overrun by the cattle of the big outfits. You know, people say the West was conquered by the railroads. Uh-uh, my daddy says it's conquered by barbed wire.
You sure a know a lot about this for a fine southern lady from New Orleans.
Ah Lily, I ain't from New Orleans, I lied to Ben. I grew up on an East Texas grub farm not unlike this one.

Best expression of women in westerns I have seen so far. This eclipses the Sharon Stone film The Quick and the Dead. The latter film softens the lead character by making her survival depend wholly on the Russel Crowe character. In Bad Girls Madeline Stowe eats up the dust on the west and shows a no nonsense gunslinger that has been rare since the Man With No Name hit his stride with a trilogy of spaghetti westerns that made Clint Eastwood a universal star. I can hardly ignore the great cinema style and the substance of this movie that transcends the gender of it's hero. Make no mistake about it this is Stowe's movie to win or lose and she comes away having broke the bank at Monte Carlo. See it with open eyes if you like westerns. If you don't see something else as this will surely disappoint. It is a western all the way.
