The Longest Yard

Yes, we've been watching quite a few movies here recently! The Longest Yard was another one of those movies that was good, cute, funny, etc., but not brilliant and amazing. It was certainly entertaining - I really like Adam Sandler when he's not playing "Adam Sandler" (i.e. Billy Madison or Happy Gilmore), and he was actually pretty great as the quarterback convict Paul Crewe. There were a couple fun performances from professional wrestlers, athletes, and Nelly, but I didn't really like the drag queen super-gay prisoners, though... Tracy Morgan with lip gloss and a bow in his hair? Please. I guess guys who go to sports movies think really faggy convicts are funny. I'm not up in arms about it or anything, but it was just a little too much. Overall, The Longest Yard was a fun way to pass an afternoon, but I won't be adding it to my DVD collection any time soon.

I agree, I really like Adam Sandler in the non-adam sandler roles. I liked Spanglish, and that other one, Punch Drunk Love. THis movie was good too.

Have you seen 50 First Dates? I cry every time at the end...(happy tears, not because the movie was so bad)

Busted! My screen only let me scroll down as far as Mariah Carey in all her orange glory. I wasn't online much last week.
