Variety - Todd McCarthy
It's close to a no-win situation dramatically, culturally and politically, and Kaplan deals with it plausibly enough by concentrating on the performances and the interior conflicts they reveal.

Entertainment Weekly - Unnamed
It's strangely enjoyable to see her(Danes) and Beckinsale busted on a bogus heroin-smuggling rap and thrown in the slammer with bad 'dos and no makeup.

Salon - Stephanie Zacharek
The penalties for drug trafficking in Thailand are very, very stiff. If there were any justice in the world, the penalties for saddling fine actors with terrible dialogue would be even stiffer.

San Francisco Examiner - Wesley Morris
Its finest moments come in sequences such as Alice and Darlene's prison break and the girls' final wrenching plea for freedom.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
We're stuck with contrived plot contortions, dull interpersonal interaction, and unconvincing dialogue.
