Time Out says

Everyone involved with this remake claims the utmost respect for Robert Aldrich's raucously funny 1974 original. So you have to wonder why they crapped all over it, starting with the casting. Adam Sandler plays a drunken onetime pro quarterback, tossed in a Texas slammer and "asked" to train an inmate team for the guards to whale on. With the help of a Heisman Trophy–winner–turned-con (Reynolds, the original film's star) and a motormouthed jailhouse operator (Rock), the disgraced QB finds his purpose in life. The film, however, finds no purpose at all.
