Well, this is awkward. Ranylt and I forgot to call each other and coordinate our outfits so now we're left wearing the same black dress with a flouncy white bow much like Kelly and Brenda on that episode of "90210." That is to say, it's unofficial Crime and Punishment Day here at Pajiba! Warden threw a party in the county jail! Let's rock.

In light of your stunning, vociferous, some (jM) might even say, "explosive" response to the list I posted yesterday, I thought I would challenge your clever minds a bit with a list of very narrow proportions. Movies about prisoners based on books! Ha! Suck on it, you fecalphiles. Once I started thinking about it, however, I realized the prison movie is one I'm awfully fond of. Most of the films on this list will stop my thumb mid-click whenever they are on. I've even been known to sit through them twice (thank you, TBS, you truly are a "super" station). I don't know if it's the idea of redemption, the convenient confines of a prison setting, or the schmexy uniforms, but I can't help myself. Also, why couldn't I think of more (any) female-centric films?

Joanna Robinson has a confession to make. She wrote this article just so she could use the title "Prose and Cons." She also could have scrapped the article once she saw what Ranylt had posted, but had already spent. . .like. . .ten whole minutes compiling a list. Time is money, people.
