The problems are the usual- weak acting by secondary characters, unpolished story, sound issues, odd sets, etc. A lot here seems episodic and repetitive.

So while I did get all the flat settings and uninspired dialogue- the lazy direction and try hard performances I've come to expect from those slow Church movies, JAILBAIT doesn't really deliver that face melting joy with it's final Kumbaya.

Its so good and entertaining.

Of the characters, the only really engaging character was Anna, and Lane's performance is a big part of why, Anna mental journey and transition is very touchingly portrayed- nice to see some hint of subtlety and hope in a not so subtle or hopeful movie- that you do identify with her and hate characters like the warden.

And, it was one of the worst movies I've honestly ever seen.

I enjoyed it.

That helps recover a story that felt artificial, melodramatic, and cliché too often.

In my view this movie portray the dark side of all-girl prison, though the plot was dramatized a bit for entertaining purpose.

the worst movies ever made.

It talks about an elevator clanking to a ominous halt and Jane gripping the rails and praying...

So if your're bored and have time to kill then I would suggest Jailbait which is free on hulu and Netflix plus even with it's multiple problems I'm sure you'll find some entertainment in this like I did.

You get a fun-filled non-stop gripping tale of a young girl's survival, and if that's not enough, it's filled with non-stop gratuitous nudity on an epic level.

The script is just as shallow and the dialogue has a lot of banality and can feel stilted, again like the story it is swamped by the subject matter and by the content.

However, the movie plot was somewhat repetitive.

From an entertaining point of view then "Jailbait" was actually a good enough movie to watch because it wasn't boring and it kept on a brisk pace.

Especially if it's presented in such a crass , cynical and banal way as presented here where Anna arrives I prison and within hours her cellmate is masturbating to her while she sleeps .
