Welcome to the slammer in this no-holds-barred, outrageous comedy! When white-collar Nelson Biederman IV (Will Arnett) winds up in the state pen with mischievous cellmate John Lyshitski (Dax Shepard), all hell breaks loose. From toilet wine to big-house beatdowns, it's a side-splitting comedy that could only happen in the clink!

Punk'd star in adult jail-house comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this dark comedy about jail isn't for kids. Teens may very well want to see it, though, since it stars Punk'd phenomenon Dax Shepard. The movie is rife with adult-oriented references to topics like gay sex, humans being sold to other humans, murder and other crimes, and cross-dressing men, to name a few. That said, the movie's theme is how to get revenge on someone who's already dead -- which isn't exactly grown-up!
