"Back By Midnight" is a 2002 comedy film starring Rodney Dangerfield, Phil LaMarr, Harland Williams, Randy Quaid, Gilbert Gottfried, and Kirstie Alley.

It also features cameo appearances by Dangerfield's real-life friends, Ron Jeremy and Michael Bolton.


Dangerfield plays Jake Puloski, a prison warden whose plans for renovating his rundown prison are ruined when his superior, Eli Rockwood (Randy Quaid) rejects his budget. This comes at the same time that Rockwood is in the midst of selling his company to the very wealthy Gloria Beaumont (Kirstey Alley). Rockwood also informs Puloski that his contract as prison warden will not be renewed, which means that Puloski will be forced to retire in two months. Without the funds for a proper remodeling, Puloski decides to approach the problem by allowing a group of prisoners to leave the prison to burgle a sporting goods store owned by Rockwood (on the condition that they are "back by midnight").
