About the Movie
A goofy slacker wreaks havoc after worming his way onto the jury of a high-profile court case in this broad comedy. The extremely unmotivated Tommy Collins (Pauly Shore) has found himself homeless after being kicked out by his mother, and he needs a place to stay. After hearing how the juries of important cases are sequestered in fancy hotels and provided with free meals, he decides that's the life for him and successfully volunteers for jury duty. Enjoying what he considers the high life and wishing to romance an attractive female juror (Tia Carrere), Tommy infuriates his fellow jurors by attempting to drag out the trial. Director John Fortenberry offers much obvious slapstick, along with a few attempts at topical jibes against media sensationalism, but even fans of Shore's lowbrow humor may be disappointed by the film's quality.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The smartest thing going for this dumdum comedy is that it opens while the real-life jury in the O.J. Simpson murder trial appears to be self-combusting.
Rotten: [Shore's] appeal must be limited to people whose self-esteem and social skills are so damaged that they find humor, or at least relief, in at last encountering a movie character less successful than themselves.
This movie is just as good as "In the army now" where pauly is acting somewhat normal. Don't get me wrong I like "Son in Law" as well, but "Jury Duty" seems to be have a more believeable story. You will enjoy this movie.
Why have only one Pauly Shore movie?
He's got some classics that he's acted in, why not include those? Encino Man, In the Army Now, Bio-Dome, Son in Law, etc. If you agree, click "yes".
I really wanna see Son In Law on iTunes!
Seriously, I like Pauly Shore's comedy that he brings to just about all of his movies, but why doesn't iTunes have Son In Law available yet? Others have already mentioned Son In Law on here, so it's not like I'm the only one asking for it. Just put up Son In Law already for a guaranteed purchase, alright?
