I usually don't give my advice on movies, but I'm shocked by Bit Burn 's review: GREAT STORYLINE ???? You can find this movie funny or not, but there is NO STORYLINE WHATSOEVER !

If you're a teenager and love American football and smoke joints: you can give a shot to this movie, since it is well-acted, but buy an illegal DVD instead of giving money to stupid filmmakers. The jokes are not great but the first If you're a teenager and love American football and smoke joints: you can give a shot to this movie, since it is well-acted, but buy an illegal DVD instead of giving money to stupid filmmakers. The jokes are not great but the first part, with the car chase, is funny. Then Adam plays the hero, he's ok but not as good as when playing the anti-hero. If you're not a teenager and you have a brain, even high you should AVOID this movie ! After a nice beginning, you will be annoyed by easy jokes until you eventually totally fall asleep in front of a looooong game of American football. Totally dumb, should be a 1 half an hour movie for such emptiness. Expand

Lame. This prison is irrealictic. Watch Animal Factory for a better insight. This comedy is not very funny. Watch White Chick for truly funny stupid American jokes. Adam Sandler is not a charismatic hero. Watch any other Sandler movie to see Lame. This prison is irrealictic. Watch Animal Factory for a better insight. This comedy is not very funny. Watch White Chick for truly funny stupid American jokes. Adam Sandler is not a charismatic hero. Watch any other Sandler movie to see him as a great looser, so much suited to him. Oh I like Adam and he plays well here, but he's just not charismatic. He's great as a sympathetic drunko the first minutes, but as a leader... pff. The football game part feels almost as long as a real one. Why don't you watch a real game ? The usual good feelings, petty morals, and happy ending, so dear to Hollywood cinema, sweeten a comedy already sweet at first. A family treat BEEERK. Expand

There is very little about this movie that is funny. Humorous is the best it gets in a few spots. It totally lacked the character development of the original and I found I could care less if the convicts won or lost.

This pitiful remake was even worse than the self-consciously mediocre original. Sandler is trying to make a career by reprising a variation of himself in every movie he's in. Is he that one-dimensional? Is there nothing else he has to This pitiful remake was even worse than the self-consciously mediocre original. Sandler is trying to make a career by reprising a variation of himself in every movie he's in. Is he that one-dimensional? Is there nothing else he has to offer? Apparently not. Expand
