The Longest Yard


longestyard05Washed-up NFL pro Paul Crewe (Adam Sandler) ends up in prison where heā€™s talked into coaching a team of other cons that will go up against a team of guards. This remake of the 1974 film has the original star, Burt Reynolds, as a fellow inmate; heā€™s fun to watch and so is James Cromwell as the mean-spirited warden. Sandler is also surprisingly likeable; for once, his character is not an aggressive idiot. The Texas locations give the movie a sweaty, brutal lookā€¦ but it isnā€™t funny, just a bland retread of the original.
