Insightful stand-up Larry Miller has been seen previously in films only as a supporting player (TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, the DR. DOLITTLE films). His full leap into the world of feature films is PROS & CONS, a comedy he wrote and plays the lead in. Miller and Tommy Davidson (BAMBOOZLED, TV's IN LIVING COLOR) play regular guys thrown into prison for crimes they didn't commit. Their only way out of the joint is by pulling off a mistaken identity scam that neither one seems competent enough to pull off. The humor pulls no punches as their predicament leads these two bumblers into comic situations involving stabbings, being taken hostage, and many other trouble spots giving a hilarious view of life on the inside. Delroy Lindo and Julie Warner assist in the master plan. Miller won a best actor award from the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival for his performance.
Description by Image Entertainment:
One's all talk - the other's all accident! Framed for crimes they didn't commit, two small-timers, Tommy Davidson (In Living Color, Malcolm & Eddie) and Larry Miller (The Nutty Professor, Best in Show), are the new kids on the cellblock in this gut-busting comedy! Now they're headed up the river without a paddle, and only mistaken identify can bail them out. This outrageous farce also features a star-studded comedic cast including Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld), Paul Reiser (Mad About You), Wayne Knight (Toy Story 2), Delroy Lindo (Get Shorty), and David Rasche (Sledge Hammer!).
