I LIKED IT
19 February 2003 | by (Lynn Haven,Florida) – See all my reviews

First off,I want to say I love prison movies.I was rather impressed with this one,it's actually one of the best ones I've seen.There is one small thing wrong with it,the two men are going to a prison disquised as women,so-they know they will have a strip search!Yes,they lucked out with it,but was it worth taking the chance?How did they expect to get past it,just by the man walking in the room and rescuing them?Don't get me wrong,I liked the movie alot.It was very entertaining and it had good actors.The plot was good,maybe not one of the best but good enough.I don't think many people would put themselves through all the trouble these two did just to get a lottery ticket.And I was wondering,what does the title mean!??Go For Broke?No,I don't get it.For the most part the movie was great.
