Blood of the Vines: The Longest Yard

14 September 2011 7:35 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Randy calls an audible and goes for a little Burt Reynolds.

It’s not too hard to connect the dots between professional football and prison, or between football and fine wine.  It’s quite a bit harder to make a play for all three.

There is no shortage of star football players who have done a little time – or more – in the pokey.  Conversely, some football folks have ventured into the field of wine.  I’ll take football over prison and wine over either of those choices.

The Longest Yard has Burt Reynolds – himself a former college football player – as a prisoner who heads up the inmate football team in a contest against the guards, a game which is more than just a game to those on the field.  It’s fantasy football with real consequences.  These football heroes have numbers a lot longer than one or two digits; their football cards are mugshots. »
