Jury Duty is a 1995 American comedy film starring Pauly Shore, Tia Carrere, and Stanley Tucci. The movie centers around a slacker named Tommy Collins (Pauly Shore), who is summoned for jury duty. Initially, Tommy is uninterested in the case and just wants to goof off, but he soon finds himself taking a genuine interest in the trial.

The case involves a woman named Mona (Tia Carrere) who is accused of killing her abusive husband. The prosecution claims that Mona shot her husband in cold blood, while the defense argues that she acted in self-defense. As the trial progresses, Tommy finds himself increasingly invested in the outcome of the case, even going so far as to conduct his own investigation.

Along the way, Tommy meets a cast of quirky characters, including a fellow juror named Monica (played by Amy Hill) and a slick defense attorney named Richard Rittenband (Stanley Tucci). Tommy's antics cause frequent disruptions in the courtroom, much to the annoyance of the judge (played by Abe Vigoda).

As the trial reaches its climax, Tommy becomes convinced of Mona's innocence and works tirelessly to convince his fellow jurors of the same. Along the way, he uncovers some surprising information about the case and puts his own freedom on the line in order to prove Mona's innocence.

Jury Duty is classic Pauly Shore fare, full of slapstick humor, offbeat characters, and a lighthearted tone. While not exactly highbrow entertainment, it's an entertaining and easy-going movie that delivers plenty of laughs. Tia Carrere is charming as the accused Mona, while Stanley Tucci is suitably smarmy as the slimy defense attorney Richard Rittenband.

The film also has some surprisingly poignant moments, particularly in the way it handles the theme of domestic violence. While Jury Duty is primarily a comedy, it doesn't shy away from the darker aspects of the case at its center. This balance of humor and pathos is one of the movie's strengths, making it both funny and emotionally resonant.

Overall, Jury Duty is a solid entry in the Pauly Shore canon, and a decent choice for anyone in the mood for a light-hearted courtroom comedy. While it's not a particularly deep or groundbreaking movie, it's an entertaining ride that's worth a watch.

Jury Duty is a 1995 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.3.
