Let's Go to Prison (2007)

Details Release Date: Mar 06, 2007; DVD Release Date: Mar 06, 2007; Movie Rated: R; Genre: Comedy; With: Will Arnett and Dax Shepard; Distributor: Universal

You'd think Arrested Development's Arnett, director Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show), and the minds behind Reno 911! would produce a prison comedy that's...what? Riotous? Rule-breaking? But Let's Go to Prison's script is stale, Odenkirk can't settle on a tone, and Arnett and McBride are in thankless-role lockdown.
EXTRAS The superior alternate ending suggests that someone in a suit imposed the existing overcooked wrap-up. Odenkirk's lo-fi chat with the soundtrack's funk musicians (Reggie McBride, James Gadson, and more) thankfully presents Ray Parker Jr. as more than just the Ghostbusters guy.
