The Longest Yard


A remake of a 1974 movie starring Burt Reynolds as the lead, our hero is an American football player who gets drunk, has a car crash, and lands up in jail. There, the head warden forces him to put together a football team to play a match against a team of wardens, who are looking forward to some 'entertainment'. Since our hero was a famous football star, the game will be televised live. Naturally, things don't go quite the way that everyone expected...
