| Movie should be jailed, no probation
A poor attempt to try an make a comedy in the style of Two Wong Foo, Some Like it Hot, and others.

90% of the movie is two guys disguised as girls and being in a prison and the "drop the soap" type humor all too common in these type of movies.

The director/writer waste too much time on the 'girls in prison" malarkey. This does not move the plot forward and stalls in out in stupid 'situational' mishaps of being in prison.

Now, if the movie took a stab at Mad, Mad, Mad World type of humor and everyone hunting for the big W or the lottery ticket you might have something.

So, you need the guards, the 'girls', the warden, the infiltrators, in short everyone looking for the ticket. This can result in endless comic misunderstandings and foul ups.

Maybe next time.
