In this rough-and tumble movie, actually filmed on-location at the Georgia State Prison, the cons are the heroes and the guards are the heavies. Eddie Albert is the sadistic warden who'll gladly make any sacrifice to push his guards' semi-pro football team to the national championship. Burt Reynolds plays one-time pro quarterback Paul Crewe, now behind bars for leading State Police on a wild chase in a "borrowed car" and more. He agrees to organize a prisoners' team to play the guards. The warden intercedes to assure that his goon squad will meet only passive resistance from Crewe's "Mean Machine." But the license to pound on their hated guards is a big incentive for murderers and thieves to learn strategy.

    This movie is a 70’s classic movie, without this one there is no 2005 garbage! The new one if filled with idiots. Adam Sandler is so bad AT EVERYTHING, he shouldn’t be famous.
  • Fantastic

    This "the original " was never meant to be a comedy. One of Burt's best movies and I'm not a fan of his. Adam Sandler did NOT do justice to this very well written & directed movie and I'm a fan of his. 🌟🌟🌟😎😎

    Yes this is a great great movie. It's my 7th favorite movie of all time. Right after the 2005 one which yes I did like better, but stil, I have seen so many movies in my life and 7th is excellent so yes whatch this movie. I would definetly recomend this film to any one. Mabie even to like 8 or 9 year old football lovers because it is very over rated, and should be PG since they didn't have PG-13 back then. So yeha see it.
