The tragedy being visited on us all

No, I'm not talking Terri Schaivo or the bombings in Beruit or T-Rex McNuggets, or the Stalag 13 moment in Iraq: I mean of course the impending release of the remake of The Longest Yard starring Adam Sandler.

Just say no

The original The Longest Yard is one of the greatest truly bad movies of all time, and to desecrate it as such...............oh, it's giving me the hee-bee jeebies.

Now THAT is a crime against humanity indeed, and something Congress needs to step in to pass emergency legislation to prevent.

Screw the federalism and separation of powers arguments, mon! We MUST STOP SANDLER'S MURDER OF AN AMERIKAN ICON!


I think that's something we can all agree on.

Good lord, and here I thought the "let's remake a bad movie and make it even worse" honor was held by "Stepford Wives"

Is it because Adam Sandler is particulary unfunny they keep trying to cast him as some sort of sports hero?

Actually, I thought this was one of Burt's best movies. I do, however, think it's a mistake to remake it. Adam is no Burt.
