      The Longest Yard, direced by Peter Segal is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for crude and sexual humor, violence, language and drug references. The original release date was May 27, 2005 for United States audience. This movie falls in the genre of Comedy/Crime/Drama/Sport and stars Adam Sandler as Paul Crewe, Chris Rock as Caretaker, Burt Reynolds as Coach Nate Scarborough, Nelly as Megget, Michael Irvin as Deacon

      Moss, Walter Williamson as Errol Dandridge and a host of Pro Wrestlers.

      Paul Crewe is imprisoned for a long list of offences. While in lockup, he is encouraged to put together a football team of inmates to go against the prison gaurds. At first, most of the inmates were not too sure about the football thing, but that was until they found out that their opponents were the guards.

      Finding the right people ...


      • for the team took alot of sifting through to find the good out of the bad or the bad out of the really bad. Not to mention, they needed cheerleaders. LOL!

        In the midst of the team preparation, Caretaker is targeted for assassination and his death is blamed on Crewe. The warden blackmails Crewe and orders him the throw the game that the inmates wher winning, once they got the energy in

        the right direction.

        Not wanting to make the same mistake twice in his lifetime, he decided that the memory of Caretaker would be better notice if he lives up to his word and take them to victory.

        This remake stood up and held its own against the original and made a great impact on me as a viewer. It is all in good fun and it was truly enjoyed. Definitely one for the collection shelf.
