|Girls in Prison was directed by the same guy who did
Wild Things, so it would not be unreasonable to expect sleazy,
entertaining, tongue-in-cheek camp.
There is some of
that, but this film has a big flaw in it. Somewhere in the middle,
they forgot it was a satire. The first ten minutes of it are
marvelous, with high camp pictorializations of early 1950's
anti-communist paranoia, and faithful recreations of the stock
characters from movies in that period period. The combination of
intentionally bad acting, excessively dramatic music, and period movie
clichés (the headlines spinning into focus) makes it very amusing.
They did manage two great shower scenes, which
provided all of the nudity.
Anne Heche shows breasts in the second shower scene, Ione Skye
shows breasts and buns in a lesbian shower scene with Bahni
Turpin, and several unknowns show all three Bs in the shower
