Storyline

Lynn Schaffer is willfully irresponsible once too often, gets fired and refuses a plea-bargain with her employer. She's now convicted and because of this uncooperative attitude gets the maximum sentence, 10 years in a women's jail wing. Model husband Larry, who wasn't informed of her dumb schemes is left running her appeal, the household and spoiled daughter who now feels abandoned. Since most inmates are junkies or prostitutes, sergeant Ed Crang and fellow corrupt jailers can run a 'favors in kind exchange'. For rebels, it gets worse. Larry however has his own radio show, so it all hangs on gathering proof. Written by KGF Vissers

Breath Takingly Stupid

This movie was total cheese. It STANK!! I think the ONLY thing I enjoyed was watching Finola Hughs' wonderful performance. But she is the only reason I would ever recommend this movie. Was if you were a Fin Fan. This movies plot was so misguided rediculous, it was embarrassing. They could have made this movie SO good considering the concept is believeable, but they turned a serious situation into total rubbish. My rating: 1 out of 10.
