Sports Movies


I was channel surfing last night and saw that "Necessary Roughness" was on TNT. It was kind of a silly movie but it made me think about other sports movies. Ones I liked were "Major League," "The Natural," and "The Longest Yard." What are some of your favorite sports movies???
Florida Tiger: Happy New Year, everybody!

I loved The Natural, Remember the Titans, Cutting Edge, Field of Dreams, and Bull Durham. I'm sure there are more, but I'm having a blonde moment and can't think of any

I enjoyed Tin Cup a great deal, as well as the others that have been mentioned. (Necessary Roughness was a horrible movie, but it was filmed in North Texas, so I cut it some slack). Hoosiers is another very good one.

I liked Major League (though it seems funny now to think of the Indians as a bad team), but the sequels somehow make me like the first one less than I used to. I don't know why that is, though.

Eight Men Out is another that I enjoyed.

Whenever Bill Murray and John McNaughton finally get their version of Veeck as in Wreck released, I imagine it will be among my favorites, too (Well, hopefully, anyway).

Happy Gilmore - now THAT is a movie.

My mom hates sports movies - says the suspense is too easy to produce with sports movies. She may be right - "Mystery, Alaska" is the only sports movie that stands on its own - away from the formulaic (sp?) sports flicks. I liked that one.

I like Field of Dreams a lot less than I did the first time I saw it...partially because I now despise Kevin Costner. I really mean that: I can't stand him.

tell'em steve-dave!

I love nearly all sports movies, but Field of Dreams is hands down the best sports movie ever made. Tin Cup, Remember the Titans, and Caddyshack are all up there as well.

As some of you may have noticed by my screen name, my favorite sports movie is by far The Natural. So many underlying elements of life represented by a baseball movie...I loved it, and still do.

Green Street Hooligans is a good movie that is, (like diamond said), loosely about sport, haha.

The Replacements was great, also.
