John Lyshitski, a young man who has been in prison more often than he has not over the entire course of his life, has just been released from what was his third prison sentence. In all three cases, he was sentenced by Judge Nelson Biederman III. As such, John makes it his mission to destroy the judge's life. Unable to do so, John does the next best thing: destroy the life of the judge's privileged thirty year old son, Nelson Biederman IV. In that new mission, John ends up not having to do anything as certain people are out to get Nelson IV, who in the process receives a 3 to 5 year prison sentence. Nelson IV's incarceration should be enough for John, who knows that someone like Nelson IV, ill-equipped mentally for a life behind bars, is easy prey to get beaten, raped and/or killed in prison. But John wants to witness and be at least a small part in Nelson IV's suffering. John's plan is to get busted, charged, and convicted for some crime, and end up in the same prison as Nelson IV's ...Written by
During the bar scene, the paper John's reading which has the story about Judge Biederman's memorial, says attendees will include; 'State Supreme Court Justices John Paino, Ron Coy and Diana Stoughton.' All 3 - who are not justices, are, in fact people involved with the making of this film (specifically the art department and set decoration). See more »

I'm a fan of Bob Odenkirk's previous work (Run Ronnie Run & The Mr. Show) and I was excited to hear of this film knowing that it also started Arnett and Shepard.
And although Odenkirk's direction is good, it's the comedy duo of Arnett and Shepard are really make this film worth watching. They; together with McBride, have a undisputable chemistry that seems to work.
Apart from the odd scene that seems to go on for too long (eg: some of the scenes with Arnett and McBride, although strengthening an important plot point, seem to go on for much to long.) and the ending (I won't give it away, but it fell kind of flat) this is a stupidly funny film that's easy to watch and will have you laughing in the first five mins.
It's worth watching if only for the dynamic between Arnett and Shepard.
