Cole Smithey

Peter Segal ("Anger Management") successfully helms his third Adam Sandler project in this funny modernized retooling of Robert Aldrich's 1974 original .

This edition of Yard has a lighter feel than the original -- well, considering it's a movie about prison inmates.

Filme poco pretencioso que no busca otra cosa que no sea entretener. No pasará a la historia, pero por lo menos es mejor de lo que parece.

A worthy remake and companion piece to the Reynolds film.

Segal's version is no sports-film watershed, either, but it is consistently entertaining, athletically brutal, and, more often than not, well-acted.

Glossy where the original was gritty and raw, silly where the original was scabrous, cartoonish where the original was dangerous and threatening, it aims only to be a lark.

kicks goals...Whilst Reynolds' film played it a little 'rougher', it's no less exciting here - it just plays to a more comedic tune.

'...when Reynolds appears on screen wearing his familiar #22 jersey (he was a football star at Florida State) you just know everything is right with the world.'

When Adam Sandler throws a long hilarious, no-brainer comedy of a pass into the end zone, you know we are going to be there to catch it.

The film's biggest question is whether Sandler's fans want to see him in a relatively straight role, something he has yet to pull off at the box office.

Seemingly the perfectly macho end for the traditional Happy Madison format.

People will go see The Longest Yard for all sorts of reasons -- its lively humor, the current of violence that's just under the surface, its message of underdog racial reconciliation, or the fact that there's no actual football to watch on TV.

A genial prison-buddy comedy albeit an almost exact script replica of the 1974 version.

The pleasure is entirely like eating cake made from cake mix. It's not like you don't know how it's going to turn out, or how it tasted the last time you ate it.

Though there's no drearier trend in current movies than recycling, this modified Yard is more smoothly crafted than the 1974 slapstick version.

The rare remake that honors rather than exploits or degrades its source.
