Prisoner Chance Caldwell's been a bad boy - that must be why the mean guard takes him out of his private cell and sticks him in with another young muscle stud. After some incoherently mumbled dialogue, Chance puts the make on his fellow con. When the prison janitor, Michael parks, sees them feeling each other up, he comes into the cell and goes down on them. Meanwhile, new prisoner Rico Brazil plays peeping tom. Then the guard catches them and carts everybody off to the glory hole cubicles that just happen to be around the corner. Eventually, for punishment, Raks ends up in a bathtub wearing a gas mask while everybody spits beer on him.
What sort of prison is this, you might ask? The script says it's somewhere in Arkansas. The prisoners break out (that is, run past the guard). Next we see Donnie Russo getting a phone call from Chance, informing him of the breakout. Donnie hangs up and goes back to playing with his lover/slave Peter Bishop. So much for the plot. Fortunately, Russo and Bishop seem to be made for each other, and are more interesting to watch than the guys in Arkansas.
Jail Cell Breakout almost works on some surreal level beyond its obvious absurdity. The men are dynamite to look at; if only director Johnson had a clue what to do with them.
