no oscars: bad girls

Even now, I jump out of Oscar Run mode to watch another movie. This time it was a mistake. Bad Girls was a 1994 western that suffered from a troubled production, a mundane script, and a thousand cliches. The idea was interesting: a western with women instead of men, kinda like turning the male road movie into Thelma and Louise. Sadly, Bad Girls stunk despite the good idea and the interesting cast (Madeleine Stowe, Mary Stuart Masterson, Andie MacDowell and Drew Barrymore). I have a very high tolerance level for Drew, which got me through most of the movie, but this ain't exactly a feminist classic.
