Rating:
R
Doin' Time is a 1985 screwball comedy directed by George Mendeluk. The film was co-written by Franelle Silver and Ron Zwang. The team who brought the world Police Academy 1 and 2 reunites in this hilarious slapstick send up to prison life. Duke Jarrett (Jeff Altman) is a traveling salesman who is wrongly sent to jail after sleeping with the governor's wife. He discovers that life in John Dillinger is not what he had expected. A loose and fun culture exists in the prison. The institutional staff is largely ineffective. Warden Fallis (Pat McCormick) is an incompetent political appointee verging on a hysterical meltdown, and the guards are apathetic and corrupt. The prisoners are left to run the prison themselves. That is, until a new and strict disciplinarian, but kooky, warden (Richard Mulligan) takes over. When the new warden's reforms infringe too far on the prisoner's cushy lifestyles, they organize a revolt. The film also stars Muhammad Ali, as himself.
