Synopsis


The Longest Yard
One of the toughest and best-remembered sports movies of the 1970s gets a humorous makeover in this comedy. Paul "Wrecking" Crewe (Adam Sandler) was once a famous professional football player, but after several years out of the limelight and an alcohol problem have taken their toll, Crewe is arrested for a serious traffic accident aggravated by the fact he was drunk. Crewe is sentenced to Allenville Penitentiary, where Warden Hazen (James Cromwell) is something of a football fan. Hazen had organized his guards into an impressive football team, and clears a healthy profit by taking bets on their games. Looking to make the competition more interesting, Hazen suggests that Crewe put together a team from the inmate population to play his guards. With the help of fellow prisoner Caretaker (Chris Rock), Crewe recruits the heaviest hitters from the cell block for the team, but the guys don't play like a unit until Crewe and Caretaker get some help from Nate Scarborough (Burt Reynolds), a former college and NFL coach doing hard time. Adapted from Robert Aldrich's 1974 box-office smash of the same name, The Longest Yard also features rap star Nelly and Nicholas Turturro; the film has previously been loosely remade in 2001 as Mean Machine, with the action moved to England and the game changed to soccer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This was a great remake, my wife and I loved it! Adam Sandler is great, along with an all star cast, including several WWE stars and Burt Reynolds. This movie was very entertaining, I highly recommend it! Also, some other good football movies I recommend are The Gridiron Gang, Any Given Sunday, Friday Night Lights, and The Program.

    Adam Sandler has done it again. A great funny cast. Alot of people didn't give this film the reviews it really should have gotten. This film is funny from beginning to end. So pick this film up and see for your self. And for those Adam Sandler fans this is a must have.

    It is an ok show. Not great, just ok. I needed to purchase another 20.00 worth of products in order to get 15.00 worth of gift cards, so this was it. I don't know that I would recommend it. It was just a show.
