(German with English subtitles) When a married woman discovers her husband's addiction to visiting brothels, she decides to start visiting them herself and is quickly swept up into a secret life filled with new sexual discoveries.
Beautiful young Daisy feels stuck working as a shopgirl by day and caring for her ailing mother by night. A suicide gone wrong leaves Daisy wrongly imprisoned, while the neighbor whose testimony put her away struggles with guilt. A tongue-in-cheek homage to 1950s women-in-prison films. Written by

Awful, boring, awful, amateurish, awful, awful, and awful. That pretty much sums up Stuck!
Daisy (played by some woman with a terrible fake southern accent, whose name I certainly didn't bother to look up) walks in on her seriously ill mother plotting to end her own life with a gun, and in an attempt to prevent the suicide, the mother is accidentally shot and killed. A neighbor sees the struggle through her window and misinterprets it, resulting in Daisy getting sent to jail with a sentence of death. I don't really remember what happened after that, probably because this movie is so terrible that it gave me brain damage.
What's supposed to be a modern homage to the "women in prison" genre, ends up being a mawkish bore that fails to entertain on any level. Stuck! isn't campy fun, and it's not anywhere near the good side of awful. From the acting, writing, and directing, to the incredibly cheap looking digital video it was filmed with, this movie is just a failure.
Even the titillation that practically is a genre requirement is completely missing, because quite frankly, most of these women make actual prison inmates look like Adriana Lima.
Skip this. Please.
