April 23, 2009
As a comedy, Bob Odenkirk's penitentiary send-up is bootless.

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

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.

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

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

A comedy of tremendous miscalculation that doesn't even have the conviction of its own stupidity.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
November 20, 2006
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.

There's an interestingly ugly social comedy to be made about jail, but Let's Go to Prison isn't it.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 20, 2006
Because the movie can't bring itself to take that leap into full-on absurdity, the characters and comic opportunities stay confined to their cells.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
November 20, 2006
If movies could be punished, Let's Go to Prison would be sent to solitary confinement for impersonating a prison comedy.

...has its share of effective moments - most of which come courtesy of star Will Arnett...

November 20, 2006
As crazy and subversive as Let's Go to Prison's makers might believe it to be, it's too undisciplined and predictable to amount to anything
Full Review | Original Score: D
November 23, 2006
It's hard to get laughs out of stuff that devolved into parody 10 or 20 years ago.
Full Review | Original Score: D
July 28, 2009
Shepard's character periodically rattles off damning statistics about America's booming prison industry, but most of the gags are of the don't-drop-the-soap variety.
January 15, 2007
its off-kilter wit is displayed with stinginess (or is it laziness?).
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 21, 2007
The short and the sweet of it: Let's Go to Prison is one of the worst pieces of Hollywood garbage I have ever seen.
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
