WCG Film Tourney: (4)Longest Yard '74 vs (5)Longest Yard '05

This matchup gives us something unique. A movie going up against itself, sorta.

(4)Longest Yard '74 vs (5)Longest Yard '05

Reynolds or Sandler. Old or new. Wait, Nelly is in one of these movies?

Descriptions after the jump.

The Longest Yard (1974) - Convicts vs. Guards in a game of football. A lot of story gets you to the match up of inmates vs convicts, and the convicts find that they can, indeed, beat the guard team made up of several former NFLers, including Ray Nitschke, Pervis Atkins, Ernie Weelwright, and Ray Ogden.

The Longest Yard (2005) - This Adam Sandler remake is full of stars. It features Burt Reynolds, Chris Rock, James Cromwell, Nelly, William Fichtner, Michael Irvin, Bob Sapp, Steve Austin, Kevin Nash, Dan Patrick and many, many more. Same general plot as before, but updated for a generation that doesn't want to watch movies featuring the guy from Celebrity Jeopardy.
