Product Description

Stars Pras, Lisa Raye, Bobby Brown & Michael Goorijian. Two friends purchase a winning lottery ticket, only to have it stolen by a woman while she is robbing the caf+ª in which they are having lunch. The woman is caught and sent to prison, having managed

From the Back Cover

Breaking into prison was easy, but breaking out was a drag. Two down- and-out homeys, Jackson (Pras) and Rome (Michael Goorjian), need to score some dead presidents fast, before a vicious loan shark and a violent landlord come calling. Just when things start looking up with the purchase of a winning lottery ticket, it's stolen out of their hands by Belinda (LisaRaye), a beautiful burglar. As the police bust Belinda, she slyly swallows the lottery ticket, and the chase is on. Figuring the best way to get the ticket back is to follow Belinda to an all women's lock-up, the guys dress like female inmates and eventually end up behind bars. Inside jail and dressed as women, "Jackie" and "Romie" find themselves in the middle of girl gangs "The Lily Whites" and "Hoes with Attitude." Worse yet, the loan sharks have also infiltrated the prison, the male warden has developed a crush on "Romie" and most important of all...the guys have to take showers with the girls!

4.0 out of 5 stars not too bad... January 31, 2003
By JOHN D.
Format:DVD
I actually rented this movie, and from seeing who was in the movie caught my curiousity. Now i have seen other movies on curiousity as well and many i have regretted. But, this one wasn't bad at all. It takes a couple of spoofs on "Pulp Fiction"
and has the same feel, but with a ghetto twist on it. And at times the story is very unbelievable, where you would probably say they should have done this with that character instead of what the director, and screenwriter did with some of the characters. But, what do you expect for a straight to video release. 9 times out of 10 these end up being the best movies. So i try t keep an open mind and give new, unheard movies a chance. You may never know.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Age Well July 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I recently watched this film, and while I did get a chuckle in a couple of spots I found it mostly ridiculous... but not in the funny way. Perhaps I am not the intended audience and I can admit that, or maybe it's because I am watching it so long after it came out. If you like over the top premises and absurdity and female prison films, go for it. I don't think I'll be watching it again, but don't take that as meaning "I hated it".
