The Longest Yard

Revealing mistake: When Crewe dumps the car in the river, you can see the wire attached to it that was used to pull it out of the water. Burt Reynolds mentions it on the DVD commentary.

Continuity mistake: After Burt Reynolds hits the guard in the crotch with the football, a wide shot shows 2:29 left in the game. He hits him again on the next play, and the scoreboard shows 2:35 left. The clock in a football game, of course, counts down, not up.

Continuity mistake: Suddenly, with no explanation, Samson is playing with his right arm in a cast and sling for the last two plays of the 1st half. Then he isn't wearing one in the locker room at halftime. He's on the sideline for all of the second half and is slinged up for most of the shots.

Trivia: When the film was released Burt Reynolds arranged to have this film shown in maximum security prisons all over the US, because the prisoners obviously couldn't get to the theaters to see it themselves.
