Best Sports Movies of All Time

These are the movies that made us want to suit up a play as soon as we came out of the theater. Some make you laugh and some make you cry, but they all make you wish that you could be Rudy Ruettiger, Crash Davis or Roy Hobbs ... at least for a little while.

The Top TenXW


Stallone's performance is mesmerizing. The underdog plot has turned this movie into a classic and the best sports film of all time!

The best... by a long distance... the character seemed so real... kudos to sylvester stallone...

This is one of my most favorite movies ever.

If not already, it will be a classic. - RdrTech

this was, without a doubt, the best overall movie ever

Some silly mistakes, but otherwise an enjoyable and meaningful movie - docghost

Remember The Titans kicks Rocky's ass.

Inspirational and heartwarming film with literally one of the greatest scores ever made. Rudy beats out every movie on here.

Without a doubt, the best movie I have ever seen! I have seen it 60 times. It never gets old and always makes me cry.

I personally thought this was a heart warmig family movie. It was good for the whole family. GO RUDY!

Its the only hockey comedy there is, and loled my ass off! - theTwister

The Hanson brothers are so out there.


The Contenders

11Raging Bull

This is substantially better than every other movie on this list. One of the greatest films of all time regardless of genre. "A League of Their Own"? "Happy Gilmore"? Are you kidding me?

The greatest movie of all time, and I don't like sports, so depressing, let so powerful, this is an amazing movie. Robert De Niro steals the show, easily Martin Scorsese's best movie - Wonderwall

Why isn't Raging Bull in the top ten. It should be number one. Robert De Niro does great in this movie and it tells the story of Jake LaMaotta very good. This is by far the best sports movie. This isn't in the top ten so there must be some morons making these lists.

Should be HIGHER. Raging Bull made Rocky look lame!

Michael is ok at being an actor I'm not crazy about his acting. But I will admit Looney Toons and W. B. did make a classic kids and adults will love forever. - 123klongike


I don't care for basketball that much, but Gene Hackman is brilliant in this movie and it always makes me pay attention to every move of the camera. - Baltimore1993

Everything about this movie is perfect. The topic is phenomenal and the cast is magnificent. It's one of those movies you just want to see over and over again.

I'm not a huge basketball fan either, but Hackman is brilliant, along with Barbara Hershey and Dennis Hopper. Great story, too.

"Hey everybody! We're all gonna get laid! "

Ted Night, Bill Murry, Rodney Dangefield, Chevy Chase and a Gopher. Enough said.
