A film we could live without, inspired by an original that was anything but essential.

Yields the dispiriting insight that Hollywood can't even make credible rabble-rousing junk any more.

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

Everyone involved with this remake claims the utmost respect for Robert Aldrich's raucously funny 1974 original. So you have to wonder why they crapped all over it, starting with the casting.

The new film keeps about 90% of the original story and even some of the original lines of dialogue, yet the changes it makes are all misguided.

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.
| Original Score: 3/4

If you're looking for a predictable, unoriginal, mediocre offering from the good folks over at Happy Madison, rent this puppy...

Homophobia, sexism, racism, ageism and OJ-ism pound against genre clichà (C)s as weathered as Reynolds' skin, bludgeoning you into submission.

A fast-moving treat.

Adam Sandler, of course, is no Burt Reynolds. But then neither is Burt Reynolds these days, judging by his performance as the team's crusty mentor.

The film looks fine, but [Segal] never even tries to make something out of this thin material.

Environmentalists will tell you that recycling is a good thing but the Adam Sandler vehicle "The Longest Yard" goes out of its way to prove otherwise.

Three decades after the original, all the rough edges have been sanded off, and the film has been given the obvious, spoonfed approach of a Hollywood summer movie.

I was never bored, but I wasn't necessarily entertained either. Mine was a sociological interest. What's going on?
