Adam Sandler depicts Paul 'Wrecking' Crewe, a disgraced professional football player accused of accepting bribes from a rival team.  After a bout of drinking, Paul becomes enraged at his girlfriend, Lena (Courteney Cox) and takes her car on a disastrous joyride that lands him a three-year prison sentence.

 

The prison's guards quickly recruit Crewe to coach their football team, who face a tough opponent in the coming weeks.  To sharpen their skills, Paul organizes a match between the correctional officers and a handpicked team of inmates.  Intimidated, prison officials begin harassing members of his team, struggling to secure an unlikely victory.

 

The Longest Yard won a Teen Choice Award; it was nominated for two MTV Movie Awards and three People's Choice Awards.  The picture netted $190 million at theaters worldwide, more than double its $82 million budget.
