Here's hoping!

Really, the only thing I remember from any of the women in prison flicks is the general cheapness, the insistence on catfights, the nudity-heavy shower sequences, and how all these movies seemed to be taking place in abandoned, century old estates in other countries.  They really all felt like dirty locations the production just found (which, let's be honest, is what most movie locations ARE).  It never really felt like a real jail to me, you know?

There's never a women prison flick taking place in a high tech facility or anything like that... I remember that boot-centric oil rig prison from Face-Off, the high tech one from that recent Swarzenegger/Stallone movie (which I didn't see) and Lockout... and those are cool, the production designer in me likes those, but those are all kind of guy centric.  It seems to me like beautiful women + glass and steel would be an obvious go-to.
