A pair of New Jersey inmates took a page from
The Shawshank Redemption and burrowed escape routes through prison walls, hiding the holes under posters of bikini-clad babes. Jose Espinosa and Otis Blunt broke out of the Union County jail by squeezing through the openings they made, jumping onto a rooftop, and then scaling at 25-foot fence. That's a lot less work than Tim Robbins' character had to go through to get out of the pokey in Shawshank — we recall a particularly graphic part of the escape scene where he crawled through sewage. Blunt and Espinosa are still on the loose. But we bet these guys are innocent, just like the guys in the movie, right? [CNN]

Shawshank is one of my favorite movies ever. I love Morgan Freeman's voice, I love Tim Robbins' Andy. What a great flick.
