We got not one, not two, but three jailhouse sports movies for you this week. The Longest Yard (1974) is a Burt Reynolds football classic that was remade in the U.K. as Mean Machine (2001) with Vinnie Jones and it was remade once again in the U.S. as The Longest Yard (2005) starring Adam Sandler. It is a story of a disgraced football player who has been thrown in jail for his drunken antics. Lost in life he finds purpose and gives inmates something they desperately need, pride in themselves, as they become a team to play against the prison guards. Join Invasion of the Remake on the gridiron for this weeks tribute to the iconic Burt Reynolds!
