Porridge - easily the best of the filmed sitcoms. Helped by having a brand new storyline rather than mashing up telly episodes.

Err, you seem to have forgotten The Longest Yard!
Well I suppose I'll have to escape eventually, but I'm not quite up to it at the moment

Locked up Lezzas VI
Luckily, the amount of heroin I use is harmless. I inject about once a month on a purely recreational basis. Fine. But what about other people less stable, less educated, less middle-class than me? Builders or blacks for example. If you're one of those, my advice to you is leave well alone. Good luck.

The Hurricane - Denzel Washington, true story about a young black boxer (rubin carter) framed for murder
So much more than just a 'prison film' though, its in my top 5 films of all time

Anyone else seen this?

The Hill - black and white film from the 60's starring Sean Connery and Roy Kinnear (bizarely). Before Connery became famous as James Bond

Set in a military prison in Africa in WW2.

Absolute belter of a film, you'll be gripped from beginning to end.
