Adam Sandler replaces Burt Reynolds (I can't believe I wrote that) as jailbird quarterback Paul “Wrecking” Crewe in this perfunctory remake of Robert Aldrich's 1974 prison-football classic. The new jokes all seem like discards from a Rob Schneider comedy, but for the most part director Peter Segal (Anger Management) and screenwriter Sheldon Turner play a good defensive game, sticking close to the original film's story. With Chris Rock, James Cromwell, William Fichtner, rap star Nelly, and Reynolds himself, as the wise old convict originally played by Michael Conrad. PG-13, 113 min.
