Let's Go to Prison

Posted on

You’d think Arrested Development‘s Arnett, director Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show), and the minds behind Reno 911! would produce a prison comedy that’s…what? Riotous? Rule-breaking? But Let’s Go to Prison‘s script is stale, Odenkirk can’t settle on a tone, and Arnett and McBride are in thankless-role lockdown.
EXTRAS The superior alternate ending suggests that someone in a suit imposed the existing overcooked wrap-up. Odenkirk’s lo-fi chat with the soundtrack’s funk musicians (Reggie McBride, James Gadson, and more) thankfully presents Ray Parker Jr. as more than just the Ghostbusters guy.
