| Not really realistic in any sense...
While "Jailbait" tries to accomplish a lot of things with its fairly stereotypical and way too unrealistic storyline, then director Jared Cohn fails to make a lasting impact with this movie.

The story in "Jailbait" is about Anna (played by Sara Malakul Lane) who is sexually molested by her step dad and accidentally kills him. Going to a juvenile rehabilitation center, Anna ends up learning how life inside the prison walls can be with all its hardships, alliances and abuse.

From an entertaining point of view then "Jailbait" was actually a good enough movie to watch because it wasn't boring and it kept on a brisk pace. However, if you put on a set of realism goggles, then everything in this movie just falls to the ground fast and shatters into a million pieces. Nothing about the things happening inside the juvenile rehabilitation facility is really realistic, and things are portrayed fleetingly and just allows the audience a brief look at the surface of things.

What kept the movie afloat the pace of the storyline and the fairly good acting performances put on by just about everyone in the movie.

But all in all then "Jailbait" is good enough entertainment and scores a solid 5 out of 10 stars from me.
