  1. 60
    A cryptic and unsettling film.
  2. Claustrophobic and overwrought, Jailbait is an unpleasant excursion into gay panic mitigated somewhat by performances that are hard to shake.
  3. The cruelty of the law has been better demonstrated with news stories, and unless you're a Californian with two strikes against you, I don't know why you'd want to do this movie to yourself.
  4. Reviewed by: Jim Ridley

    Becomes the umpteenth prison drama to focus on the lurid threat of forced submission.
  5. An essentially two-character drama that would have been far more effective onstage, Brett C. Leonard's Jailbait is ultimately as claustrophobic as its setting.
  6. 25
    I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make a prison picture as utterly boring as Jailbait.
