Patience pays off for Lamb Jeanette Ward as the film she has been championing for months, has finally won. 2001’s “Mean Machine”, an English remake of “The Longest Yard”, features a cast of U.K. actors taking over a sports, comedy, prison drama and making it their own.


Soccer personality and Guy Ritchie actor Vinnie Jones, basically plays himself, a disgraced footballer who goes to prison and has to find redemption in the game he betrayed.

Jason Statham makes an appearance as mass murdering comic relief and David Hemmings frightens us even more than Statham with his eyebrows. 

So Come Join Jay and Richard along with Amanda Kirkham and Nick Rehack as we discover why Jeanette is so passionate about this nearly twenty year old comedy remake.
