Storyline

John Lyshitski is a car stealing slacker, with a weed problem, and has been in Illinois' Rossmore State Penitentiary so many times, he knows its entire population of both staff and cons by their first names. Cursed with the old ill luck of being in the wrong place, at the wrong time, in possession of the wrong car, he's been deemed a lost cause repeat offender in the eyes of everyone else. When the heartless judge, who has been behind most of his sentences, goes to the big court house in the sky, John decides to ruin the man's legacy by having the judge's only offspring, Nelson Biederman IV, thrown in the slammer along with him. Here, the world-class selfish jerk learns a certain old lesson the hard way: Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. But has John gone too far in the payback department? Written by ????

Trivia

During the bar scene, the paper John is reading shows a headline about Lockport High overcrowding. The school is in fact, Lockport Township High School of Lockport Illinois and is actually facing alarming overcrowding at both east and central campuses. A referendum has been proposed and rejected twice by the taxpayers to build a third campus in Homer glen, forcing the school to construct trailers and go to split-shift schedules. See more »

An Entertaining Comedy
3 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's Go To Prison was a sleeper hit for the 2006 movie season. It came out in November of that year and really didn't start to air previews or TV spots until late October, so a lot of people really didn't expect it. It starred Dax Shepard and Will Arnett. This was the first big gig for Will Arnett and it really scored for him. This movie really is entertaining in the since that it always has something going on. The whole plot was put together very well and had a great form around the prison lifestyle. Dax Shepard does extremely well as John Lyshitski and Will Arnett gives a Grade A performance as Nelson Biederman IV. I have to say that this is a must see for all comedy genre fans.

10/10
