Bad Girls

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

This cowgirl opus may aspire to frontier feminism, but its stale stereotypes, hackneyed plotting and fashion-conscious sensibility is more in the tradition of Howard Hughes' campfire kitsch. Discriminated against by the law, four prostitutes flee for their lives. Cody (Stowe) is the leader, a tough, sharp-shooting 'honky-tonk harlot'; Eileen (MacDowell) a Southern gentle-woman by predilection, an outlaw by destiny; Anita (Masterson) an impoverished widow; and Lilly (Barrymore, the best of them) a hard-riding, hard-drinking tomboy. There's no depth here, and precious little surface. Things move at a fair gallop, but the last 45 minutes simply rehash kidnap scenarios with one character after another.
