In this remake of the 1974 film about prisoners who square off against their guards in a game of football, Burt Reynolds is cast in the role of Coach Nate Scarborough, while Adam Sandler takes on the Burt Reynolds' old role of the former NFL pro, now prisoner, Paul "Wrecking" Crewe. Warden Hazen (James Cromwell) makes a deal with Crewe to help his prison guard team win the league championship. Crewe suggests that he train a team of convicts to play against the guards in a game that Hazen assumes will be an easy win for his team of guards. But, as Crewe and fellow prisoner Caretaker (Chris Rock) begin working with their team of convicts, Crewe decides to go for the win.
