'The Longest Yard'

The Underdogs: A ragtag group of prison convicts Pro football star-turned-convict "Wrecking" Crewe ( Burt Reynolds) is told his sentence will be reduced if he takes a dive during the prison's annual guards vs. prisoners football game. But this movie was made in 1974, man! Ever the anti-establishmentarian, Crewe leads his team of prisoners to victory despite various attempts at cheating by the guards. -- Andy Grieser
