Let's Go to Prison
from Film Forum, 11/30/06

Some moviegoers would be happier in prison than sitting through Let's Go to Prison. That's the impression critics are giving in their reviews about the new comedy starring Dax Shepard and Will Arnett. Some are comparing the movie to the Gene Wilder/Richard Pryor comedy, Stir Crazy—as a way of saying that it falls short of that mark.

Bob Smithouser (Plugged In) says it's "more sinister and vindictive" than Stir Crazy. "In addition to having no one to root for in this sophomoric, antisocial time bandit, Let's Go to Prison trots out one lame gag after another that will only appeal to disenfranchised, incarcerated or intoxicated audiences. Lazy writing and mean-spirited humor are the rule here."

Mainstream critics want everyone connected with this film locked up.
