We gave it a D+

Imagine a cross between ”The Shawshank Redemption” and ”Waiting for Guffman.” Impossible? Not if you’re director Peter Cattaneo (”The Full Monty”), who did such a fine job getting Tom Wilkinson, Mark Addy, and Robert Carlyle to shimmy. In this one, a gang of jailbirds stages a musical as — quite literally — escapist entertainment.
