Sandler and Rock touch down
The star of Spanglish, Mr Deeds and Little Nicky plays the role of a prisoner who is asked to organise an American football team to play against the guards.
Sandler is helped out by the prison caretaker, whose role is played by Chris Rock, star of Head Of State and Bad Company.
The coach of the team is Burt Reynolds, who appeared in the original version of The Longest Yard in 1974.
The film is directed by Peter Segal, who has worked with Sandler before on films such as 50 First Dates with Drew Barrymore, and Anger Management with Jack Nicholson.
His other directorial projects include the comedies Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult and Nutty Professor II: The Klumps.
