Goofs

Near the end of the film, Frank prepares to stab Monica but shoves the knife into the ceiling, releasing a pile of white asbestos dust all over himself. A moment later he falls from the balcony but when we see him on the ground, there is no powder on him at all. Then a close up shot shows him spitting powder from his mouth, and there is some on his head. See more »

This movie was stupid but it was very funny
10 March 2004 | by (Austrlia) – See all my reviews

I think that Jury Duty was stupid but very funny. Pauly Shore is funny because he exists. There's room for anyone in comedy and he proves this point. I'm not sure if this movie damages brain cells, but I watched this movie alone and laughed my ass off. A little tasteless at times. I wonder if Pauly Shore wrote any of it. Andrew Dice Clay made an appearence, I think he's a good actor, very funny. Tia Carrere is a good actress also. It's a true comedy if you think about it, stupid, funny, there's only one part of the film that I didn't find funny. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Pauly Shore's mother runs the comedy circuit, so that's pretty funny in itself. Did he get on the big screen just by talent. You be the judge:)
