Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the very next day.
After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and 400 costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
Paul "Wrecking" Crewe was a revered football superstar back in his day, but that time has since faded. But when a messy drunk driving incident lands him in jail, Paul finds he was specifically requested by Warden Hazen (James Cromwell), a duplicitous prison official well aware of Paul's athletic skills. Paul has been assigned the task of assembling a team of convicts, to square off in a big football game against the sadistic guards. With the help of fellow convict Caretaker, and an old legend named Nate Scarborough to coach, Crewe is ready for what promises to be a very interesting game. It's only the warden and the guards who have no idea who or what they're up against, with Paul the driving force behind the new team. Written by
Michael Irvin played a practical joke on Bill Romanowski while filming a scene in the locker room. Irvin replaced the fake, collapsible locker door that Romanowski head butts with a real, solid locker door. This can be seen as an outtake on the DVD. See more »
When Crewe and Caretaker first meets Nate Scarborough, you can easily see the sun on the horizon. However, in the background of the scene, there's only small structures around. So why is there a huge shade in front of Nate? See more »
I love that dress.
Of course you do, Lorenzo, you made it.

This is by far the worst movie I have seen in recent years. I had no interest in the movie due to the inappropriate and inconceivable premise, I was shocked to find out that my low expectations were not low enough. The acting is stilted and awkward, the plot has holes you could drive a mack truck through, and the overarching moral and ethical implications are disgusting. Are we supposed to root for a bunch of convicts (rapists, murderers, arsonists, drunks) simply because prison guards haven't shown them a great deal of hospitality!?!? Give me a break! What does it say about this country when a stadium full of fans are cheering "Convicts! Convicts" in support of society's derelicts. I am shocked that people are able to respond to this film in a manner other than pure disgust and contempt. This film is racist, sexist, and degrading towards anyone with an IQ over 15. The Longest Yard was the Longest Hour and a half of my life and I would do just about anything to get it back!
