The Longest Yard mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Adam Sandler reverses into the police car, he damages the Bentley he is driving at the back end. When the police chase him, the back end is not damaged at all. (00:06:35)

Greg Weisgerber

Factual error: In the penitentiary, the guards should be wearing a United States flag patch since it is a federal penitentiary, not the Texas flag patch. (00:08:45)

Suggested correction: Paul Crewe was arrested by local police and not charged with a Federal crime, therefore he would have been incarcerated in a State Prison, not a Federal Penitentiary.

But the prison is named Allenville Federal Penitentiary so they should be wearing American flag patches and not state patches.

If he was arrested in California by local cops, why would he be incarcerated in a Texas State Prison and not a California State Prison?

Bishop73

He was arrested by locals but under Federal probation for shaving points. He went to Federal prison for probation violation.

Question: Why did Nate Scarborough need x-rays of the guards injuries?

Answer: Simple: to show the other prisoners/players on the team the guards' weakest points on their bodies to attack them. Previous injuries means an advantage.

Question: Who plays the guard that beats Adam Sandler with the baton? He looks familiar. He's also in the cafeteria scene - he attempts to hit Adam but he blocks it and then the guard says "You're gonna regret that" (or something to that effect).

Question: What is the name of the song being played when they are messing about in the muddy field? It's also at the end of one episode of Cold Case: Anyone know the name of that episode?
