It's really not much fun watching the non drama of our hero Randy (Michael Pitt) staring at the walls and keeping the hands of the more brutish Jake from clawing up his skirt.

This is very hard to watch, a powerful and disturbing film about the inhuman conditions that exist within the American criminal-justice system...

Photography from inside a shoe box makes for a dull film no matter how close up and personal.

Austin Chronicle

The stage origins are simply everywhere, but this debut feature is so fantastically acted that it inspires indulgence of its first-timers' mistakes.

Jailbait takes less than 90 minutes to unspool, yet is filled with enough awkward silences to make my last date sound like the Dawson's Creek pilot.

Claustrophobic and overwrought, Jailbait is an unpleasant excursion into gay panic mitigated somewhat by performances that are hard to shake.

While the stars deliver highly committed performances, the static nature of the proceedings ultimately defeats them.

Not since Tom Arnold was employed as another horny criminal, one who tried awfully hard to sexually abuse Edward Furlong in 2000's "Animal Factory," has a penitentiary movie been so undone by a charisma-less performance.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

In the final analysis it all feels very much like a successful acting exercise that while psychologically acute, doesn't really bring much more to the table than what we've already gleaned from a few episodes of Oz.

A stagy, only mildly compelling prison drama that ends up feeling like purgatory to all involved.

I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make a prison picture as utterly boring as Jailbait.

The cruelty of the law has been better demonstrated with news stories, and unless you're a Californian with two strikes against you, I don't know why you'd want to do this movie to yourself.

... the umpteenth prison drama to focus on the lurid threat of forced submission.

Unless you like listening to graphic descriptions of gay sex, then don't waste your money."

Jailbait argues that prison is an unpleasant place to spend time, but didn't Oz already destroy any remaining romantic notions about life behind bars years ago?
