The Longest Yard

27 May, 2005

Sandler stars in this remake of the 1974 movie of the same name. He plays Paul Crewe, a former NFL quarterback who ruins his reputation by shaving points in a championship game. He is sent to a Texas jail for drunk driving and is blackmailed by the warden into training the inmate football team in order to be beaten by the guards. He co-stars with Chris Rock, Burt Reynolds, and Nelly.

Yes, I did play football, I was in the North Bulldogs. I was actually a very good quarterback until Shawn Wallace came and moved to town and eh took over for me, and he kinda stopped me from playing.
