The Longest Yard (2005)
No, we're not talking about the remakes, plural. The original stars a young Burt Reynolds. He plays a former NFL player who gets tossed in jail. While there, he leads a ragtag bunch of misfit prisoners in a game against the guards. Burt Reynolds has a reputation for playing rough-around-the-edges characters, and "The Longest Yard" helped cement that reputation.
