| Better than "The Waterboy"
I got to see the same sneak preview movie at the theatre last week.

With all the TV advertising and trailers at the movies I thought the film was coming out soon, but I just checked and they said it won't hit the Cineplex until May 27th!

Prediction? It will the box office winner on Memorial Day weekend. Perfect time to come out with a football picture because all the NFL fans are fed up with Arena football and thirsty for any real football.

Well, what can I say about the movie? Loved it! Very entertaining. You could get into the characters, no matter how despicable they were and you were rooting for them. Of course the story is an old one. They filmed it in 1974 with Burt Reynolds and it is about prisoners playing a football game against the guards. It's a comedy, but boy it is Violent with a capital V.

It is a real macho man movie and everyone is going to love it. Adam Sandler gets beat up or beat down a lot in the movie, they give the best lines and jokes to Chris Rock and there will be a few other Saturday Night Live people you will recognize in it. There are a lot of scenes of cheap shots and unsportsmanlike conduct. Very physical, very brutal. Some scenes will make you cringe. You will feel their pain. Not blood and guts with stabbings or shootings, but extreme football hurts and hits.

Yes it's a comedy and yes it's funny, but also ultra violent, did I mention that already? Now I know why I gave up on football in high school and focused more on Cross Country and Track & Field...because I realized I would live longer if I competed in a sport where no one is trying to injury me or knock you out of competition.

A great film? No, but people will feel they got their money's worth and yes, it will be popular on DVD with outtakes and behind the scenes footage. I can't see it getting a PG-13 rating, not with all the language and use of the "N" word by the cookie cutter, steroid popping sadistic guards.

Quotes

Lorenzo: I love that dress.
Lena: Of course you do, Lorenzo, you made it.


Goofs

When Crew is stopped by police, he flees the scene. As he leaves the police officers are both shown talking on their portable radios at the same time. Assuming they are partners riding in the same car, they would be operating on the same radio frequency. Thus, they would not both be able to transmit at the same time, because it would just be jumbled garbage to anyone(dispatcher) listening.


Alternate Versions

On cruise ship and airline versions, the profanity has not only been redubbed, but quite a bit of alternate footage has been inserted to tone the language down. For instance, Caretaker's line "Tell Ronnie you got knocked the fuck out" has been changed to "Well, tell Ronnie he should have warned you about that truck". Also, when Caretaker is telling the prison "women" that "it's football, not balls-ball", it has been replaced with "it's football, not *that* kind of ball". And when Ms. Tucker tells Brucie that his "breath smells like eight cans of shark shit", this has been replaced with "your breath smells so bad, I don't know whether to get you a toothbrush or some toilet paper". Cuts have been made to the video sequences between Crewe and the Warden's assistant, and to the one with Brucie and Ms. Tucker. In the final football game, the repeated statement "I think he just shit himself" has been changed to "I think he broke his freakin' neck".
