Storyline

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 mystic80

Alternate Versions

On cruise ship and airline versions, the profanity has not only been redubbed, but quite a bit of alternate footage has been inserted to tone the language down. For instance, Caretaker's line "Tell Ronnie you got knocked the fuck out" has been changed to "Well, tell Ronnie he should have warned you about that truck". Also, when Caretaker is telling the prison "women" that "it's football, not balls-ball", it has been replaced with "it's football, not *that* kind of ball". And when Ms. Tucker tells Brucie that his "breath smells like eight cans of shark shit", this has been replaced with "your breath smells so bad, I don't know whether to get you a toothbrush or some toilet paper". Cuts have been made to the video sequences between Crewe and the Warden's assistant, and to the one with Brucie and Ms. Tucker. In the final football game, the repeated statement "I think he just shit himself" has been changed to "I think he broke his freakin' neck". See more »

Laugh out loud funny
3 June 2005 | by ccvixSee all my reviews

I loved this movie! I have seen the original, also, and I have to say that this version is much more fun to watch and should appeal to a wider audience. For those who thought this was going to be a more serious movie for Adam Sandler....what on earth gave you that idea?? It's a comedy. It's meant to be funny and it is. If you are not a fan of Adam Sandler's then don't bother with it, because you won't like it. If you are a fan, I believe you will enjoy it very much. If you have absolutely no sense of humor, as it seems quite a few who have written comments about this movie are lacking just that, then don't bother with it either. I know when my husband and I saw it, the whole audience was roaring with laughter throughout the movie and my husband has informed me that he cannot wait for it to come out on DVD. It was a whole lot of fun to watch and I recommend it highly.
