Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
One of the year’s most pleasant surprises, Adam Sandler’s remake of the hugely successful 1974 prison drama not only does justice to the original but, arguably, improves upon it as well. Disgraced former gridiron star Paul Crewe Sandler, in the Burt Reynolds role, sent to prison on a reckless-endangerment conviction, is ordered by hard-bitten Warden Hazen James Cromwell to organize a football squad made up of convicts, and then engage the guards’ team, headed by sadistic Captain Knauer William Fichtner, in a televised exhibition game. Expected to lose badly -- while giving the guards some much-needed practice -- Crewe gets unexpected help from another imprisoned football player, old-timer Nate Scarborough Reynolds, and a well-connected inmate, Caretaker Chris Rock. Like the original, this Yard juxtaposes the brutish quality of competitive football with the equally brutish reality of prison life. The hardened inmates initially reject Crewe’s recruitment effort -- until they realize that a game would give them the opportunity to inflict physical punishment on the guards who mistreat them. What’s genuinely surprising is how credibly Sandler handles the physicality of a very demanding role. He does most if not all of his character’s onscreen gridiron stunts, handling and throwing the football with a lot more skill than anybody has any right to expect from a Saturday Night Live alumnus. And he lets his fellow cast members, especially Rock, get most of the laughs -- of which there are many. This is yet another indication that Sandler is trying to distance himself from the imbecilic screen comedy that made him a top box-office draw. Nobody will ever confuse him for a classically trained Shakespearean actor, but he’s definitely maturing. As for the Big Game, even if the outcome is never in doubt, you’ll find yourself swept up in the same rush of enthusiasm felt by the characters themselves.

    A total riot

    I haven't seen the original movie but Burt Reynolds was awesome in this version, as was everyone else. Loaded with hilarious jokes and pranks, and proof that lumbering, musclebound giants can be very, very funny, it also has plenty of realistic, hard-hitting football scenes. A must-have for all fans of sports and comic films.

    Oh My Gosh...

    This is my favorite movie ever. It made me laugh hysterically. Then in some other places it made me almost cry. It's a very heart warming story that will knock your socks off...Literally.

    Great Funny Movie

    I LOVE THIS MOVIE! Adam Sandler is the funny man himself and alongside with Chris Rock this movie is unstopable. From funny wise crakes to more serious parts this movie will have in stiches on the floor or on the edge of your seat. With an alstar cast this movie will blow you away!

    A great movie

    I really, really love this movie. I really like Adam Sandler and Chris Rock and try to watch as many of the movies that they are in. While they had me laughing, the one character that had me in stitches was the guard Engelheart, played by Kevin Nash. Even tho he plays one of the mean guards very well, I thought he was absolutely hysterical after the inmates switched his "medication". It's just too fuuny watching this huge, almost 7 foot guy go from mean to... well, I don't want to give too much away, but let's just say Engelheart gets a wee bit feminine. If you want to see a really good movie, most definitely get this one!!

    I have never been one to enjoy sports movies, so I hesitated to watch it when my friend rented it...but since I'm a HUGE (and I mean HUGE) Adam Sandler fan, I decided to watch it... man am I glad I decided to!!! It was so awesome and incredibly funny!!! Two thumbs way, way up! I can't wait to go buy it!

    ANOTHER GREAT SANDLER MOVIE

    This certainly isn't one of Adam Sandler's funniest movies. Chris Rock I think steals the humor throughout the movie, but it keeps that's okay. A great movie to watch over and over.

    Worth Watching

    It seems like Sandlers pushed out some real turds since Happy Gilmore but I really enjoyed this movie. It was almost over and they had to throw that stupid old catch phrase of "You Can Do It" and blew the ending for me. Other than that I would recommend watching this movie. Chris Rock definitely upped the comedy for this movie.

    THE FUNNIEST AND GREATEST MOVIE I'VE EVER WATCHED

    "THE LONGEST YARD" WAS HILARIOUS. THE BEST MOVIE I'VE SEEN. IF CHRIS ROCK WAS NOT IN THIS MOVIE, IT WOULD'VE SUCKED. BUT I WAS LAUGHING MY A** OF THE THEATER. I'VE SEEN THIS MOVIE 2 TIMES AND CAN'T UNTIL IT COMES OUT ON DVD!
