CGiii Comment

The introductory dedication - to prison chaplains - will have you heaving into the vomit bucket in next to no time.

The prisoners put on a show - with a drag act. Don't get too excited - it lasts for about 2 seconds.

The script is laughable - unintentionally funny.

And, it has the worst rendition of the Lord's Prayer ever recorded.

Sanctimonious piffle.
