Storyline

Framed for crimes they didn't commit, two small-timers are headed up the river without a paddle. Now, the only thing that can bail them out is a case of mistaken identity. It's the hysterical prison comedy that's so funny, it's criminal! Written by Anonymous

Lots-o-laughs
4 November 2004 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

I happened to enjoy this film. I am a big comedy guy, and this came on @ 3 am on HBO. I'm a big Larry Miller fan so I watched it. I haven't laughed that hard in a while. Sure some of the jokes are played out and we've seen them a hundred times, but for some reason, from Larry, it's funnier.

The plot kind of drags once they escape prison and head for the club and the brokerage house. But soon after, it's over, so there really is no room to be down for too long.

I would recommend this movie for anyone who just needs a good laugh every now and again. But considering the acting, plot and dragging thru, I'll give it 6 1/2.
