Let's Go to Prison Reviews

November 20, 2006
The movie's too dryly detached to even enjoy its own tastelessness: jokes constantly fall with the dull clatter of cutlery on the mess-hall floor, and the relentless abuse meted out to the hapless Biederman backfires by dint of sheer ritual repetition.

Let's Go to Prison announces its desperation right from the opening credits, thanks to a montage of celebrity mug shots and arrest footage suggesting there are still laughs to be had at James Brown and Martha Stewart's expense.

This really isn't a comedy. It's more of a woolly spoof, stretched out to criminal lengths.

Let's Go to Prison is a sly, very funny comedy that stays admirably deadpan every time you think its about to veer into gross-out territory.

The writers of this movie should be sentenced to a comedy chain gang peeling bananas and making cream pies.

Arnett has seven movies coming out within the next year. It seems safe, or at least optimistic, to assume that this is not going to be his high point. But he does make a consistently amusing Felix to Shepard's frustrated Oscar.

It is awful, unfunny and moronic. And that applies to the best bits. Most of the movie is even worse.

The main crime in this movie is that the whole thing feels lazy -- it's as if they filmed the first draft of a script that still needed some trimming and sharpening.

This movie's 90-minute run time definitely feels like too long of a sentence.

There's an interestingly ugly social comedy to be made about jail, but Let's Go to Prison isn't it.

It has laughs, it has some cleverness, and it has a lot of problems. But it's not 'bad,' exactly. 'Dysfunctional' is more like it.

November 18, 2006
A comedy of tremendous miscalculation that doesn't even have the conviction of its own stupidity.

November 18, 2006
A clueless, pointless, unfunny dud. The kind of movie where one can tell that the actors already know they're making a piece of crap.

Since this stars Dax Shepard, a more appropriate title for Prison might've been Relentlessly Awful, Laugh-Free, Cinematic Torture Device.

The elements of dark comedy, prison system satire, and juvenile gross-out gags eventually blend like the slop ladled out for inmates at feeding time.

The sad thing is that Arnett, Shepard and McBride quickly establish a loose, easy camaraderie that's a real pleasure to watch. The shame is that they're working with such unrewarding material.

Odenkirk's visual sense ain't the greatest, but he definitely knows funny.

Should have been titled Let's Go to DVD, where it will clearly move with unbecoming alacrity, and where it will be much more at home. Though, one hopes, not yours.
