"The Naked Cage" is a fine, fine film. I would rank it among the very best woman's prison movies that I've seen. That is saying a lot as I consider myself to be a connoisseur of the genre. "The Naked Cage" is good stuff.

The movie starts off with a hot chick hitchhiking to the song "Tuff Enuff" by the Fabulous Thunderbirds. She gets involved with a loser and they plan a bank heist. Naturally, an innocent blonde is implicated in their robbery. The rest of the movie is at the woman's prison where the blonde fights for survival among prison riots and horny guards.

All of the elements of a successful woman's prison flick are here. Lesbian wardens, sadistic prison guards, mass shower scene, prison fights and plenty of unnecessary female nudity. The key in these movies is to keep the violence level high. The nudity is always good but for a woman's prison flick we've got to see the women reduced to animal-like ferocity to survive. "The Naked Cage" keeps the girls very angry.
If you like woman's prison flicks, check this one out.

SCORE: 3 out of 4 blondes behind bars

Blonde warden too. Perfect.
