Let's Go to Prison (2006)

Director: Bob Odenkirk

Starring: Dax Shepard, Will Arnett, Chi McBride, David Koechner, Dylan Baker, Michael Shannon, Migeul Nino, Jay Whittaker, Amy Hill, David Darlow

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Welcome to the slammer

Plot: When a career criminal's plan for revenge is thwarted by unlikely circumstances, he puts his intended victim's son in his place by putting him in prison...and then joining him.

My rating: 6/10

Will I watch it again? Nah.

Maybe my hopes for this were way to high (I know, what was I thinking).  Odenkirk directing, starring the great Will Arnett and badass Michael Shannon.  It's got some great laughs, I enjoyed the setup/execution and Dax Shepard is hilarious but there weren't enough funny bits to keep me engaged.  I realize it's just a comedy but I wasn't laughing nearly as much as the material and talent should have delivered.  The side story between Arnett and McBride was a gas.  That was handled well.  The ending with the winery was pretty weak but it was a pretty fun ride up to that point I suppose.
