|When a career criminal's plan for revenge is thwarted by unlikely circumstances, he puts his intended victim's son in his place by putting him in prison ... And then joining him. Contains both (r) theatrical version and extened (ur) version|
"...a sly, very funny comedy, one that stays admirably deadpan... Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times
Editor's NoteDax Shepard (EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH) stars in this prison comedy as John Lyshitski, a lifelong petty criminal who is all too familiar with the criminal justice system. For Lyshitski, prison is a second home where he knows all the rules and runs the show. After being released from his most recent jail stay, Lyshitski decides it's time to avenge the man responsible for it all. But to his horror, Lyshitski learns he's been freed just moments after the death of his nemesis, Judge Biederman. Needing someone to take out his grudge on, Lyshitski sets his sights on the judge's son, Nelson Biederman IV (Will Arnett). A well-groomed, high-powered executive who verges on uptight, Biederman looks like he wouldn't make it through one night in a jail cell. But as the result of Lyshitski's tricky maneuvers, Biederman finds himself sentenced to several years in a penitentiary that would intimidate even a seasoned criminal. Proving just how far he'll go for revenge, Lyshitski also gets himself arrested so that he can make his target's life a living hell.LET'S GO TO PRISON is what you'd expect from a prison comedy. Beyond the usual rape jokes and fist fights, the film finds humor in jail cell decoration, toilet wine, and unlikely bonds between inmates. Dax Shepard shows off a slightly different side than he has in other films, and though not nearly as impressive here as on ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, Will Arnett is likeable enough. Chi McBride delivers some laughs as Barry, a teddy bear of a man who is after Biederman's heart (and backside) in several shower scenes. While LET'S GO TO PRISON may be set to stand in the long shadow cast by other Odenkirk works such as MELVIN GOES TO DINNER and MR. SHOW, the director does manage to deliver a light look at the usually dismal world of the incarcerated.

|I can attest first-hand that there are certain facts about Let's Go to Prison that might make it seem worthwhile. It was directed by Bob Odenkirk, the "Bob" half of the sometimes brilliant sketch comedy show Mr. Show with Bob and David; it was written by other sketch-comedy veterans, driving forces behind The State and, more recently, Reno 911; and it stars Will Arnett from Arrested Development, a show that was not sketch comedy but still favored by comedy connoisseurs. Other loose-collective comedies of this time period, like Talladega Nights or The 40-Year-Old Virgin, pool comedy's best and brightest to thoroughly entertaining results....read the full review|
