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 »

Quotes

Nelson Biederman IV: "dear new pen pal, my name is Nelson Beaterman the fourth, i'm 30 years old, and I've been in prison for three months. In this hell hole I've had my ass kicked so many times, my ass has foot prints in it. But you know what? I think I'm going to make it. At least I know it cant possibly get any worse. Anyway... thanks for listening. I'll have to sign off now, as someone is pissing on me. Your new friend; Nelson."

The actors may no be well know but this IS a very funny film
27 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's rare I comment on a Film because most films in my view are average

  • but this film is very funny and very well played and believable - I


didn't see it coming - but maybe I was just being too entertained by it all - I particularly enjoyed the visual comedy of this film facial expressions were so perfect I almost wet myself on several occasions from start to finish this film entertained and made me laugh - even the closing titles where the three main characters were in the people carrier being entertained by the CD Player !! hehehe - just thinking about it makes me almost cry laughing again - so don't be put off by the poor rating so far - don't worry that there aren't such well known actors - do enjoy this well constructed, very funny film
