Prison inmates form a football team to challenge the prison guards.
Paul Crewe (Adam Sandler) was supposed to have played college football for Florida State University and professional football for Pittsburgh. Burt Reynolds, who starred in both films, was an All-American running back at Florida State, and is an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
I love that dress.
Lena: Of course you do, Lorenzo, you made it.
When Paul Crewe goes to meet Turley in the maximum security cell, Turley turns around and he has a spot of blood on his chest just above the top of his shirt. During the conversation the spot of blood disappears and reappears alternately as they switch between Turley and Crewe.
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".
