"The Longest Yard" - Burt Reynolds plays a pro quarterback stuck in prison. He ends up creating a football team of convicts who take on the guards in a game to end all games. This is a goof of a movie that's powered by the charm of Reynolds and the oddball collection of real-life football players like Ray Nitschke and Sonny Sixkiller! (Not to be confused with the Adam Sandler remake.)
