Universal has some Prison plans March 6.
Career criminal John Lyshitski (Dax Shepard) survived his latest stint in the slammer dreaming of his revenge on Nelson Biederman III, the judge who first sent him to prison. When he learns that Biederman died just days before his release, Lyshitski decides to punish the judge's pompous only son, Nelson IV (Will Arnett), instead. After he engineers the arrest and incarceration of Biederman, Lyshitski deliberately gets himself arrested and heads happily back to the slammer to witness the inevitable mayhem. He pretends to befriend Biederman, even snagging him as a cellmate, all the while working behind his back to make sure that his stay is as miserable as possible. Things are looking glum for Nelson when he becomes the object of the affections of hulking gang leader Barry (Chi McBride), but just as Lyshitski begins to enjoy his sweet revenge, an unexpected turn of events turns Nelson into the Big Man of the Big House.
Hard time has never been so hilarious as an ex-con with a grudge turns the justice system upside down in Let's Go to Prison, available on DVD on March 6, 2007 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Prison food, hostile gangs and large, rude inmates take center stage in this no-holds-barred comedy starring Dax Shepard ("Employee of the Month") and Will Arnett ("Arrested Development") as a pair of mismatched cellmates, along with a side-splitting performance from Chi McBride ("The Nine," "House"). Directed by Bob Odenkirk ("Mr. Show"), Let's Go to Prison abounds with belly laughs as the well-laid plans of an inmate in search of payback go disastrously and hilariously awry. The DVD features extras including uproarious deleted scenes, an alternate ending and an exclusive behind-the-scenes visit and both the unrated and original theatrical version of the film.
Career criminal John Lyshitski (Dax Shepard) has spent his most recent prison stretch looking forward to getting back at the judge who threw the book at him. When the jurist dies just days before his release, Lyshitski instead frames the man's spoiled and arrogant son, Nelson Biederman IV (Will Arnett). Nelson is sentenced to three-to-five, and Lyshitski gleefully returns to jail, where he devotes his days to devising creative ways to steer the scrub as far wrong as possible. The DVD is priced at $29.98. Pre-order close is January 30, 2007.
