Ex-football super star, Paul Crewe (Sandler) is busted for drunk driving and stealing his girlfriends car. Paul was once accused of shaving points off a football game which saw an end to his football career. His jail term has more haters than fans who despise him from day 1 for his football fiasco. The only person supporting him is Caretaker (Rock) who has been ranked as the least threatening prison inmate by the guards. Warden Hazen (Fichtner) wants Crewe to help coach the prison guards' football team who have been consistently losing for the past few years. Crewe advises him to organise a tune-up game against a weak team which would highly motivate them and who better than the inmates themselves? Crewe is assigned to head the inmates team who motivates the inmates by telling them that this is their chance to beat up all the prison guards and that they should join the team. Former football star Nate Scarborough (Reynolds) joins the team as coach along with a host of violent inmates eager to give the prison guards a good thrashing. The movie is definitely a fun watch and is hilarious on more than one occasion. Each and every character in the movie has a definite and unique identity which makes the movie a lot more interesting. A remake of the 1974 film of the same name.

Thumbs up: Amazing characters
Thumbs down: A bit more humour to make it even better

Rating: 7.3/10
