The Longest Yard is prison sports comedy film directed by Peter Segal and written by Sheldon Turner. A remake of 1974’s The Longest Yard, it stars Adam Sandler as a washed-up former professional quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers who, in exchange for freedom, is forced to assemble a football team to play against the guards. The film co-stars Chris Rock, James Cromwell, Nelly, William Fichtner and Burt Reynolds, who played Sandler’s role in the original. The film primiered at May 19, 2005 on Hollywood, California.

Paul Crewe is a former NFL quarterback who was accused of shaving points, though it was never proven. One night he gets drunk during a party and goes joyriding in the Bentley of his girlfriend, Lena, causing a chase with the police and crashing the car. He is sentenced to 18 months in prison as a result.

In prison, Warden Rudolph Hazen, an avid football fan, wishes to use his personal football team composed of his prison guards to boost his reputation for future elections as State Governor. Using a week in a hot box to coerce him, Crewe recommends that the Guards, lead by head guard Captain Knauer, play a tune-up game, a game between the Guards and a team that they easily slaughter to boost morale. Hazen tasks Crewe with forming a team composed of the prison inmates, believing that he will be unable to unite the unruly prisoners, thus not only achieving his goals, but also exerting his power over the inmates.
