This agreeable remake still manages to go the distance.

What links the two films in fun and ferocity is the big game, a ripsnorter that is irresistibly entertaining.

The Longest Yard more or less achieves what most of the people attending it will expect. Most of its audiences will be satisfied enough when they leave the theater, although few will feel compelled to rent it on video to share with their friends. So, yes, it's a fair example of what it is.
