Jordan Christopher Michael,
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. But Cody's old partner Kid Jarrett takes Cody's money when his gang robs the bank, and so the four so-called "Honky- Tonk Harlots" set out to recover the money, with the Pinkertons hot on their trail.

According to producer Lynda Obst, the original production design was essentially monochromatic, and the leading actresses had primary color costumes. During the brief halt in production and cast and crew replacements, a different production designer was hired and the costume and set concepts were retooled. One recurring problem in the original project was that the lead actresses were fighting over a red costume originally intended for Madeleine Stowe. See more »

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 grubworm farm not unlike this one.

Agreed, the acting could have been a bit less melodramatic but the actresses concerned did a good job when they weren't looking like supermodels.
The trick about it was "they had to look good" and they did look good. Madeleine Stowe's "Cool Cody", Andie McDowell's Elegant Eileen, Mary Stuart Masterson's "Arch Anita", and Drew Barrymore's tomboyish "Li'l Lilly", were fetching and gave rise to Girl Power credence.
I couldn't take my eyes off Barrymore who had come a long since E.T. and her drug/alcohol fuelled periods of teen angst/pain.
The fight at the end in the corral blew me away, those girls proved they could outshoot anything on two legs!!!
There should be a sequel!!!
