John Pollock & Wai Ting review The Longest Yard, a 2005 remake of a 1974 football film starring Adam Sandler alongside several pro wrestlers/fighters including Steve Austin, Bill Goldberg, Kevin Nash, Bob Sapp, and The Great Khali.

Synopsis from Rotten Tomatoes:

Disgraced pro football quarterback Paul Crewe (Adam Sandler) lands in jail, where manipulative Warden Hazen (James Cromwell) recruits him to advise the institution’s team. This turns into a lead role quarterbacking a crew of inmates in a game against a team of prison guards. Aided by incarcerated ex-NFL coach Nate Scarborough (Burt Reynolds), Crewe and his team must overcome not only the bloodthirstiness of the opposition, but also the corrupt officials trying to fix the game against them.

Thanks for going through this movie so that I may continue to avoid it.

I met Kevin Nash a few years ago at a convention. I asked him what movies he had a good experience working on, and he mentioned this one, in addition to Magic Mike.
