Do you have a favorite prison movie?

I have two: "Cool Hand Luke", and "Shawshank Redemption" (or its title as originally written, "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption").

Why do guys seem to like prison movies more than women do?

Yup. Cool hand luke, shawshank, brubaker and one with tom selec innocent man i think its called.
My brothers exwife has a prostate and she doesnt like prison movies. Oh and one more prison movie "my brothers previous marriage".
Both were great, and I'll add 'Runaway Train' to the mix. A visceral and grizzly account, and both Voight and Roberts gave tour de force performances. I think Voight actually won 'Best Actor' for his role that year. It's a lesser known movie within that genre, but one I'd highly recommend if you haven't seen it yet.
Just sayin'

Brubaker, Green Mile and the Longest Yard... But there was always "The Women of Cell Block D" (1972). Glad no one like Papillion or Midnight Express...the bathing scenes and whe that guy puts a flower in his mouth...uhh I have to upchuck.
