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

uneven and badly edited
26 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story has great promise, but was not thought-out. Too erratic, lacks logical sequencing, ending is unexplainable. Appearance by Jerry Seinfeld falls flat - awkward and hardly amusing - so out of context that it confused me more than entertained me. I kept wondering why? The ending - which I watched three times - lacked reality. Sure it is a movie, sure its supposed to be a comedy, but hey, its the real world, you're trying to tell a "real" story - next time out - just set the movie in another dimension and suspend reality in total.

On the other hand - there were moments that were very funny and unique, but not enough to make this worth watching.

Also, some of the actors showed great potential - all left undeveloped and unexplored.

And what the heck was jerry Seinfeld doing in this movie?
