This "rough around the edges" comedy manages to succeed on all levels - it contains some bawdy, broad comedy in the vein of Animal House, as well as some thrilling and cheer-worthy football scenes. And then Adam Sandler made a remake...

The Longest Yard is a classic about a football play doing time and being forced to play on the prison football team. The movie has kind of a weird premise but it some how works. The movie is both touching, funny, and a bit scary. Whats not to like about that?

I couldn't believe this movie was as good as everyone was saying it was. So, I checked it out for myself. And, by golly, it was!

Awesome movie

You just can't get away with this stuff anymore. In the first ten minutes, Burt Reynolds has beaten his girlfriend, stolen her car, gone on a massive police chase, dumped the sportscar off a bridge, then attacked two cops. Oh, and he's the hero of the movie, too.
I love this movie, it is a load of fun. No prison movie I can think of is so removed from the experience of a prison, even as one experiences it, an oxymoron. We are exposed to a warden, Rudolph Hazen (Eddie Albert), who becomes increasingly contemptible, ultimately even more so than the guards (that is not always the case). This distinction also reflects a reversal (somewhat) of the passions felt earlier in the movie. But it's best to have the focus, the villain, at the top, isn't it? OK, "The Longest Yard" is not really a pris...
