Kathy (Christina Applegate) and Carmen (Elizabeth Pena) are two totally different girls who are brought together because their boyfriends are partners in the selling and distributing of illegal narcotics, and wind up selling their stash to a couple of cops. After being sentenced to a prison term in a jail 400 miles south of LA, both ladies, who are not keen on the idea of being so far away from their men, move down to the desert and start life down there. They have their share of arguments while learning to live together, but deep down inside their both good girls, so learn to look past and eventually embrace the differences. Carmen's boy Paco (Michael Mundra) even learns to like the desert life, with the help of a few local characters of course (one played by the always amusing Michael Mckean). At the most, this is a movie that entices the viewer to feel that they too learned something about cultural diversity, and it was really great that both the leads were able to overcome prejudices and live together peacefully. If you're in the mood for a film that's been made a thousand different times under a thousand different masks but leaves you feeling good about life as the credits roll, then give this film a spin. If you're more the type that doesn't enjoy watching recycled trash, then I'd say it might be better to put this one back on the shelf next time you're in the video store. As a last thought, there was a cool painting by Frida Kahlo on the wall of the trailer, its unfortunate they didn't give her any credit. Rating: 18/40
