Just saw the original Longest Yard – or, as it's apparently called in the UK, The Mean Machine. Yeah, imagine my confusion, especially knowing about the Adam Sandler remake!

"3/7/17 Burt Reynolds is the former football star who ends up in prison under Governor Eddie Albert, who blackmails him into forming a prison team to go against the guards.
