Review: This movie was absolutely terrible. The plot in general made enough sense, but there were someparts where I was just fed up with the movie. Definitely won't be watching this one again. D:

The main character, Babydoll, is put into a "mental hospital" where the girls there dance to attract sexual customers. Babydoll and four other girls all decide that they're tired of it and want to escape. Long story short, only one girl got to leave in the end.

The number one thing that ticked me off about this movie is that you never get to see Babydoll's dance. I mean, you don't get to see anyone else's either, but everyone at the "hospital" makes a big deal about Babydoll's dance. That it's the best, and it holds all the males' attention. But we onlookers never to get to see it.

Every time Babydoll starts dancing, she closes and eyes and goes into some kind of dream world where her and the other four girls fight against fictional creatures in a kind of war. It was really mind-boggling as to how she could dance to something like that. Like I said, you never get to see her dance.

To be perfectly honest, this movie wasn't what it was made out to be. The commercials showed an action-oacked film with fighting around every corner. The only action in the entire movie was when Babydoll was dancing. The dance we never got to see :(.

This movie was most definiely a true disappointment. If you didn't see it in theaters and were thinking about getting the DVD, don't. It is totally a waste of your time.

This isn't the first time I've heard how horrible this movie was. So disappointing, because I thought the previews of it looked so amazing! Definitely won't be watching it

I was wondering about this movie, so glad you reviewed it! I'll probably skip it.

I actually wound up really enjoying it. I think part of the reason it's hard to fallow is because all of the different layers. If you remember back to the one of the first scenes she the doctor talks about how they use role play to kind of help the girls heal. So babydoll's dance isn't an actual dance, but more of something where the males can't stop watching if you get what I'm saying. So basically given what Babydoll is actually doing, it makes sense that they don't show it. But still, I would have liked to see her actually dance instead.
