Throwback Thursday- Bad Girls (1994)

Sometimes, in life, you have to make a choice about surviving. Even if that choice means going against respectable society and being labelled an outcast for that choice.

In Bad Girls (1994), four women must make their own choices. Cody (Madeleine Stowe), Anita (Mary Stuart Masterson), Eileen (Andie MacDowell) and Lily (Drew Barrymore) are forced to make their living via the world’s oldest profession. When Cody saved Eileen from an abusive customer, all four women must run for Texas. Anita is a widow who hopes to pull out money from late husband’s bank account to start a new life in Oregon, but with the Pinkertons and Cody’s old partner thrown into the mix, it will not be an easy journey.

It’s not the best movie, or the best Western. However it’s nice to see strong women who defy the standards of what it means to be a respectable woman.

Do I recommend this movie? Why not.
