Not so bad
5 June 2003 | by ethylesterSee all my reviews

I actually liked this movie. I thought the police officer character was cool and she did a good job. She was quick thinking and smart and so were the other women. It's nice to see women who can actually be tough and bright without being ugly, ditzy or Lesbian. It seems that most movies (like those "women in prison" ones) always rely on the stereotypical idea that if a woman is tough or smart, she must be a Lesbian. I was happy to see no Lesbian make out scenes in this movie that would just be there to get off horny dudes. There are, however, a lot of physical fights, especially after they turn their jeans into cut-offs.

This film is entertaining and it kept me wondering what was going to happen next. I'd recommend it to people who like "women in prison" movies but can stand it when the characters aren't Lesbians who make out all the time.
