Elliot is a loser who robbed a bank and landed in jail after being setup by his girlfriend. As the new guy, Elliot is considered fresh meat and encounters inmates trying to make him their own at every turn.
Fans of really obscure so-bad-it’s-good stuff might enjoy this what-where-they-thinking?- affair; shot in Canada in 1971. A very stupid young man attempts to rob a bank to impress a very trashy girlfriend. Hey, these people smoke a lot of Pot.
Thrown in the brig for two years, he get;s to experience variations on every prison movie standby in the book. He befriends his cellmate, who seems like a pretty nice guy, but is eventually tortured (legally? Oh Canada!) for punching out a homosexual. It’s a very, very dumb film but it does have a few surprises and winks at the poor audience. One guard is a dead ringer for John Candy.
Well, I don’t know what else I can say about it. The actors are O.K. I think some of it was supposed to be funny.
