There are 'chick flicks' and there are 'guy flicks' and LET'S GO TO PRISON definitely falls into the latter category. Adapted from a novel 'You Are Going to Prison' by Jim Hogshire by screenwriters Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon and Michael Patrick Jann and directed by Bob Odenkirk, this light film seems to be a 'boys night out' venture and should be viewed with a heavy dose of good humor. John Lyshitski (a hunky and very funny Dax Shepard) has a rotten childhood, having been caught in funky 'crimes' always facing the courtroom of on Judge Biederman (David Darlow) who consistently sentences him to time in reform school then prison. After multiple terms behind bars Lyshitski seeks revenge on the judge only to discover the judge has died! BUT the judge left a cocky son as heir - Nelson Biederman IV (Will Arnett) - and Lyshitski stalks him and ultimately is able to get Nelson locked up in prison, and then manages to get himself locked up simultaneously to be Nelson's cellmate. The point of the caper is to put Nelson through the cruel events of prison life, but as the two live in the same cell, Lyshitski's best ideas for revenge and backfire, leaving the once terrified Nelson in the hands of a Black gang leader Barry (Chi McBride) with whom Nelson ultimately bonds and thwarts all the plans for revenge that Lyshitski penned. The ending is a funny twist of events that is good for a chuckle as well as lesson about guy bonding. The film is no great shakes of a movie, but made on an obviously low budget it does benefit from the antics of the three excellent leads and the result is a 'different kind of prison movie' that is light, silly, and entertaining.
