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

go to the dentist instead...
24 April 2002 | by (denver) – See all my reviews

...because a trip to the dentist is less painful and you'll laugh more at his/her jokes than the ones in this 'comedy'...

I had been on a roll for many months, not seeing any really atrocious films, but the streak died here. This attempt at screwball comedy is populated exclusively by either morons or despicable one dimensional cliches.

You'll recognize a handful of the actors/actresses here, who must have really needed some money or failed to read the script, which has dialogue that theoretically could have been written by a lobotomized earthworm.

I gave this a 2. The only reason I didn't give it a 1 is because I derived a miniscule amount of entertainment belittling the film's ineptitude. I don't recall this being in wide release (though I could be wrong)-what a shock.
