Storyline

Four female convicts break out of prison, and during their escape they take hostage a bus full of young female tennis players. They drive the bus to the house of the judge who originally sent them to prison, where--since this is after all a women-in-prison picture--the hostages undergo various forms of physical and sexual abuse in various degrees of nudity.

Goofs

A DVD (BCI 46758-9 "Women Behind Bars Double Feature") of the dubbed English-language 76-minute version has the the title "Escape from Women's Prison" on the packaging, but has the on-screen title [first screen] "Escape from Woman's Prison" [second screen] "A Story of Sex and Violence." Somebody at BCI Eclipse Company, LLC should have caught the change from the on-screen's singular "Woman's" to the packaging's plural "Women's." See more »

Alternate Versions

"Escape from Women's Prison" (as it appears on the "Sweet Sugar / Escape From Women's Prison" Continental Video double-feature tape) was cut by over 10-minutes in order to fit onto the same VHS/Beta tape as "Sweet Sugar." See more »

Political sexploitation
4 September 1999 | by prohibited-name-1142See all my reviews

JAILBIRDS is a movie whose storyline is appealing for sick fans like me : 4 women who just broke out of prison get a lift from a bus full of young and innocent female tennis players. They take hostages and bring them all into a judge's house. Then the fun begins.

Beautifully photographed, but badly written and poorly acted, this "carceral drama" mixes a political content with some gratuitous sex and rape scenes. We get to see every actress undress and I wouldn't complain if it wasn't so softcore...

The music, as I recall, is hilarious, and the ending is not really surprising. Well, this one's not bad but it is just another of those numerous 70's plotless softcore sleaze numbers... For lovers only.

ATTENTION : In Canada, the movie is released under the title WOMEN AGAINST WOMEN as well as under the title VIOLEZ LES OTAGES! - and I know that cuz I've been ripped off, I bought both...
