DIRECTED BY: John Fortenberry

RATED: PG-13/REGION A/1:85/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 1

When jobless Tommy Collins discovers that sequestered jurors earn free room and board as well as $5-a-day, he gets himself assigned to a jury in a murder trial. Once there, he does everything he can to prolong the trial and deliberations and make the sequestration more comfortable for himself.

I lived through the Pauly Shore era. I saw Son in Law, I saw Bio-Dome, and yes I certainly saw Jury Duty. I saw them all on VHS and here is Mill Creek bringing Jury Duty to Blu-ray with one of those stylish VHS style slipcases. So, the package is at least very 90’s and cool even if the movie is a bit questionable. There was clearly a format in comedies from the 1990s and that remains true here with this. We also have the fact that Pauly Shore is basically always playing the same character. All of these things make Jury Duty more of a movie for people who love the more mindless side of comedy. If you enjoy things like Larry the Cable Guy, then I’m sure you’ll love something like this. I didn’t really like this one back in the day and the remains true now, even if it is on a nice looking Blu-ray.

I suppose if I was looking for something good to say about this one here I could mention that it does have Tia Carrere. She was always good for at least making you want to try to keep your eyes on the screen in movies she was in that were otherwise a bit harder to finish. So, this one is a bit annoying at times thanks to the lead, it’s a bit predictable, and if you’ve seen one movie like this then you know how it goes. It gets funny, it gets just serious enough to justify the plot, and then it all goes like it always goes. The main reason to own this one from Mill Creek is for the awesome slipcase. Other than that the less Pauly Shore the better for all of us.
