* DistractedByTheSexy: When they march onto the football field for the game, all the convicts (bar Paul and Nate) stop the march to chat up the guards cheerleaders (before being warded off at gunpoint by the guards). Justified as they have been in jail for God knows how long and haven't seen a woman (as in an actual woman rather than [[CampGay crossdressing effeminate men]]) in ages, let alone a group of attractive, scantily-clad women like the cheerleaders.

* PluckyComicRelief: The remake has Brucie, an [[TheNapoleon angry little man]] who can't play very well.
** His lack of playing talent, however, helps the Mean Machine get the ball back after one of his lousy kicks was tipped by a guard and became a live ball. The Cons recovered and that set up the final drive of the game.

** Burt Reynolds, who starred in the original, as Nate Scarborough in the remake-- an unusually large part for this trope.
*** He even wears #22, the same number jersey he wore in the original.

* CripplingTheCompetition: the warden orders Crewe give the guards a 21-point advantage or he will frame him for involvement in a murder. Crewe agrees provided the warden will have the guards not injure the prisoners. The warden agrees, then double crosses Crewe by later telling the head of the guards once they have a 21-point advantage to "inflict as much physical punishment on the prisoners as humanly possible."

On 4th and 22, Crewe utilizes a QB draw and manages to beat the entire guards' team single-handedly to pick up a first down [[{{Badass}} (without his helmet, no less)]]. He takes a hard hit after gaining around 25 yards, when he could have easily let the team punt the ball away, and his redemption is earned.

* RevengeBeforeReason: The Mean Machine ends up with a 14 point deficit before a minute passes in the game because they're more focused on injuring the guards they hate than playing the game. Once Crewe chews them out for it, the cons settle down and start playing seriously.

* CoolOldGuy: Nate Scarborough and Skitchy. Of the latter, Scarborough claims "He's been here so long, he knows where everything is."

* CoolOldGuy: Nate Scarborough and Skitchy. Of the latter, Scarborough claims "He's been here so long, he knows where everything is."" The reason he was in there for so long? He punched a guard who ended up becoming the warden. Twenty extra years for one punch, and to him, it was worth every goddamn minute.
