It's the usual combo of high concept and low execution, and not even Jonathan Kaplan's background as an exploitation director can bail him out.

Audience Reviews for Bad Girls

"Bad Girls wasn't exactly bad enough for me. I was expecting some bad-ass chicks stealing and causing chaos in some small towns. I guess they did a small amount of that, but not enough for my tastes. I'm not a big fan of Westerns in the first place. But even with the so and so plot and it being a Western, I still enjoyed it. I like Drews character, Lilly the most. She wasn't scared to get crazy. I might watch this again. Maybe if I was to catch it on T.V."

So this is the female version of 'Young Guns' haha, sounds cliche and this is totally, every one in the book checked. To be fair you knew this was coming ever since they made the brat pack western, there had to be a posse of ladies.

The film looks fine with fair costume, location and stunts but the plot is so average and with a mixed cast of good and bad actors it just doesn't work, how Andie MacDowell gets work in films is beyond me.

Bit of a flop on release and panned by critics and I can see why really, I dunno why its called 'Bad Girls' either as the main four are hardly bad or even outlaws, maybe naughty.

I like the idea of the rebellious women in such a male dominated era and the toughness of Madeline Stowe here, it's not a film that holds your interest too well.
