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 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 »

Anybody want to buy me a champagne drink? How about a fancy beer? 15 bucks for a lap dance.

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.
