Time Out says



More a shiv to the stomach than a tickle to the ribs, this pitiless, nihilistic slammer comedy fishes for laughs amid inmate sadism. Rabid to wreak vengeance upon the recently deceased judge who repeatedly put him away, serial felon John Lyshitski (Shepard) engineers a plot to have the man’s son, hateful millionaire Nelson Biederman IV (Arnett), put in the big house—and then follows him to make sure the screws are turned tight. Abusive behavior abounds, both for the characters and the audiences stuck watching it. (Now playing; Click here for venues.) — Stephen Garrett
