As Jacob makes his way to buy them, the greengrocer in the shop keeps telling an officer that Jacob was threatening him, so Jacob escapes, but only just, hitting his head rather hard and awaking in court where he is sentenced to two years, two months, two weeks, two days, two hours, two minutes, and five seconds to a children's prison run by not only a mad wrestler presumed lost, but also two (also aptly named) bird-like and fish-like cohorts as well as slimy humanoids that spray resisters with slime to stop them in their tracks.

Trivia

The book for which this movie was based was written by Mordecai Richler, who based the characters of Jacob and his family off Mordecai's own youngest son Jacob, and their family, with each of the children's names based off his real children: Daniel (eldest), Martha/Marfa (second eldest), Emma and Noah (Twins, 2nd youngest), and of course Jacob (youngest).

Sweet Ass Flick!

Jacob Two Two is the best movie I have ever seen! I am stunned that it did not even get an oscar nod..Gary Busey plays the role of a lifetime, and Jacob is super cool. ICE-T drops some funky raps too! All in all, I have not seen a better movie since The Langoliers. Truly a film for all ages.
