Watch the trailer for 80 for Brady
The first trailer features the four heroes, who are again played by veteran icons Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Rita Moreno and Sally Field, who are all together watching their favorite football team, the New England Patriots . Since they know they’re not getting any younger, they decide it’s time to do something spontaneous and fun, ultimately making it to the Super Bowl. We see their attempts at high jinks, some including winning a hot wing eating contest hosted by Guy Fieri, others involving the foursome trying to impersonate dancers alongside Billy Porter. Ultimately, we see that they at least partially get to see players Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and many more take to the field and make a dream come true. We’ll just have to wait and see how they do just that, and see how upset the friends will be when they find out Brady and Gronk are moving to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The longest yard (1974): Not to be confused with the 2005 remake of the same name (though that one isn’t half bad either), the original starring Burt Reynolds has stood the test of time as one of the best football comedies ever made. Reynolds stars as a former quarterback whose time on duty behind bars, as he is forced to assemble a ragtag football team to take on the prison guards in a game. Although our hero is almost manipulated into throwing the game so he can be freed early, he eventually discovers that winning would do a lot more for his teammates.

He just happens to have a natural gift for football, and when this is seen first hand by a desperate, neurotic college football coach, Bobby gets the chance to go to school and be part of a crew.
