| Take it for a stand alone movie..
Don't compare today's comedy version of "The Longest Yard" to the old with Burt Reynolds. Today's is good and effective for what it is, a comedy film with a bit of action interlaced. So many classic Hollywood films were so good, that any attempt at a remake is just going to fall flat on its face. The Longest Yard with Adam Sandler is more of today's take on the story if you asked me. It has humor, and is Sandler at his best with Chris Rock playing his role well too. Critics and classic moviegoers beware. Unless you are open-minded, you will never find the hidden treasures of the movie world. It's a football comedy, plain and simple.

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".
