The Longest Yard (2005) on DVD
I saw The Longest Yard last weekend it's a kickass film. Definitely the best comedy of the year so far. I'd definitely like to watch the original.

There's only one problem with it, its watered down subject matter. Of course everyone knows, this kind of movie is usually more brutal but this was toned down for an R rating. I can definitely see the possibility of an unrrated version of this film to come out.

Does anyone agree or know about any future, possible plans?

Watching this remake of the 1974 classic is like watching a high-school production of your favorite musical.

The movie was okay, not as good as the original, but not as bad as I expected,
and yes I see an Unrated version coming, come on from the film it looks like they had to edit out at least 20 minutes, and 1 thing about the film, although It wasn't that bad, but I got tired of the Gay Jokes after a while, oh and why is it that the N word is starting to turn into a huge trend  with Comedies along with the F word?

Well it's not a trend, it's there depending on subject matter. In prison, it's literally hell, as there is a lot of corruption, with racism, trasvites/homosexuals, etc. The watered down subject matter definitely could use 20 minutes as you said.

I only say this because the original is called "The Lockdown Edition" so I figure it'll be in similar context.

yes I know that prison is like that,
however, it seems as if Director's think  that every comedy has to use the F word.
but profainity can be good if used eith reason, however, if it's used for plain shock value it can get really annoying.

This films' use of "fuck" was quite hilarious. The Aviator's was pretty good, and subtle too.

Pulp Fiction has plenty of great ones:
I'm gonna get fuckin' divorced. No marriage counselling, no trial separation, I'm gonna get fuckin' divorced.

Any of you fucking pricks move, and I'll execute every motherfucking last one of ya!

ENGLISH, MOTHERFUCKER! DO-YOU-SPEAK-IT?

Yeah, I haven't even seen the film and I recognize those. Good 'ole QT. More than 250 f-words in that thing, right?

I think Reservoir Dogs have more F words than Pulp Fiction but I'm not sure about the numbers.

Is there really a need for so much profanity.

It's not just every comedy. It's about every PG-13 movie. Gotta use that one F-word that the MPAA lets you.

What are you gonna expect from QT?
although the profainity in the Kill Bill films weren't all that bad,
I remember hearing 17 in Vol. 1 and about 25 in Vol. 2

Before there was QT with REservoir Dogs, there was Scorcese and Goodfellas. F**k used 246.

And lets not forget Casino, comin in with a whopping 422 times. Joe Pesci has made an art out of it.

"You dizzy motherf**ker you!"

and there was Gary Oldman, who made his directorial debut in 1998(I think)
in Nil By Mouth, a film with the most uses of the F word of all-time, 470 according to Wikipedia.

Just checked IMDb:

Goodfellas:
Quote: The word "fuck" is used 246 times in this film (mostly by Joe Pesci).

Casino:
Quote: The word "Fuck" is said 422 times, including in the narration - 2.4 times per minute on average.

Nil By Mouth:
Quote: The word "fuck" and its variations are used at least 470 times, an average of 3.9 times per minute.

Nil By Mouth is the record, from what I've heard.

I just got The Longest Yard. I won't watch it until I watch the other movies I bought for awhile.
