Storyline

Like every good women-in-prison film, most of the cast here are women. This one is particularly good as they seem to get naked at the slightest provocation: sometimes unexpectedly and sometimes when the prison doctor says, "Please get undressed." Thank you. Unfortunately, several of them break out of prison and things get boring for a while as they battle against the evil drug-dealer Carlos. Then we find out that he also "is a fashion designer on the side" and they bust in on his fashion show, complete with runway models, and run amuck. Written by Mark Logan <marklo@juno.com>

Showers, Showers, and more showers
1 February 2001 | by (Nelson, NC) – See all my reviews

awesome women in prison movie. You had it all, dresses getting ripped off during fights, strip searches, conjugal visits(where the FBI undercover agent had to pretend to be doing it), and many many shower scenes. It was a shame though because the really cute gard who became the FBI agent's buddy towards the end said she was going to take a shower, but it didn't show it! All this TNA was built around this really lame plot about a drug dealer, named Rico of all things, who fronted as a fashion designer?? give me a break, he was supposed to be this big macho guy, but ... No wonder his hot girlfriend tried to rip off his code book. This guy couldn't satisfy a woman if his life depended on it. The acting was really bad, but as long as the women kept up the showers who really cares.
