At the end of the movie when Mr D is trying to escape in his vehicle he knocks over Duane trying to escape on foot. However Duane bounces off the front of the vehicle and over to the side. When Mr D reverses and again runs over Duane, half of Duane's body is lying under the car, perpendicular to the vehicle. Even if he had rolled, there is no way Duane could be in this position, especially when Mr D had reversed in a straight line. See more »

Waste of Time
17 February 2005 | by twolegs_goodSee all my reviews

If you want a good women-in-prison movie, rent Caged Heat. This absolute dog isn't worth seeing.

Catherine Oxenburg, with the help of some lighting & makeup, attempts to act a woman 10 years younger than herself who's wrongly accused of a murder. She gets taken to the most unbelievable prison you can imagine & the rest is downhill from there. If you're a guy who likes ogling bare-breasted women, then you may enjoy the strip scenes at Mr. D's, but if you want to see something erotic, you'd be better off renting a soft porn flick.

Admittedly, there are some amusing moments. Bo Hopkins is over the top, but quite funny as Mr. D., and I found Catherine Oxenburg's wooden attempt to pole dance quite hilarious – almost as good as Jeff Fahey's bemused "I've got a hangover and it shows" look – which he must have decided was key for his character, as he didn't change facial expression for the entire film. As for Louise Fletcher, one can only assume she was short of money at the time. The script never lets in a moment of tension, and it's all by the numbers right to the final scene.
