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.
August 26, 2006

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

... 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?
