Best Sports Movies of All TimeThese 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 Ten
Slyvester Stallone made the character after witnessing a janitor being able to withstand rounds upon rounds with Muhammad Ali
Stallone's performance is mesmerizing. The underdog plot has turned this movie into a classic and the best sports film of all time!
no contender the champion - bromleymonkey
The best... by a long distance... the character seemed so real... kudos to sylvester stallone...10 Comments
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
The topic of this movie goes way beneath just a football team trying to win the Virginia State Championship. - opinionated43 Comments
The most inspirational sports movie of all time. It's crazy that it's not on every top 10 list of best sports movies
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.
Every time I watch Rudy, at the end I shed happy tears. Every Time.1 Comment
This movie is so underrated
9 kids, a sandlot, and neighborhood story. Enough said. - NiallersNandosXOXO
One of the best movies of all time - MattCozadd
Brad pitt did an excellnt job
Much better then rocky. In fact this is one of the best films of all time it explores the effects of rage and abuse to exponential effect.
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.5 Comments
Top 5 sports movie
Its the only hockey comedy there is, and loled my ass off! - theTwister
The Hanson brothers are so out there.
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.
Best movie on here cause I live in southern Indiana1 Comment
Adam Sandler needs to make more movies that look like this! - LightningStrike
Nice movie, full family entertainment barring a couple of scenes of course that I censor
The natural is the best - bugngoo
"Hey everybody! We're all gonna get laid! "
You'll get nothing, and like it.
Ted Night, Bill Murry, Rodney Dangefield, Chevy Chase and a Gopher. Enough said.
adam sandler and chris rock funniest people alive and with the help of a cast that looks like it costs a billion dollars... how could it go wrong - arsenal193
the newest longest yard the cast is incredible
Wow! Number 10? Happy gilmore is supposed to be a better movie than this? Shame! Rocky and titans should be right below this one.
Definatly the greatest sports movie ever, even if it isn't as great as some of the other movies listed.
And of course, Burt Lancaster,
Love this movie! Soft spot in my heart for it as I used to live in Chisholm, Minn., and knew people who knew Moonlight Graham. Kostner is good as always but I thought Ray Liotta and James Earl Jones made this movie. Amy Madigan and Timothy Busfield were good, too.
this movies hilarious.
Who holla holla holla holla why isn't this in the top 20?
Great performance by Billy Bob Thornton - mistat94
Wow. 14? You people don't know what a sports movie is.
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
Kurt Angle is in this movie!
This movie isn't just showing muscle and mere UFC fighting scenes.
Beautiful story and drama inside. With such a brilliant cast like nick nolte, tom hadry and joel edgerton.
If you already watch this movie than you'll agree with me that this movie deserves better position than 30-something
My favourite quote of all time is that movie. Also, they did a great job of making a movie based on a true event. For me, it's Coach Carter followed by Space Jam.
Its sad that this film did not even make top 10
It's a classic, just a crew of douches, spits, nigas, pansies, nerds, oafs, Mexicans, and booger eating morons and they make it all the way to the championschip game what kinda crew can do it!
Russell Crowe should've won the Academy Award for Best Actor for this movie, and it should've won Best Picture. By the ending scene I'm bawling!
Russell Crowe gives a brillant performance as James Braddock. The boxing scenes awesome as if you were watching a real fight.
One of the greatest sports movies with breathtaking performances - InsertNameHere
Amazing epic movie. I liked it better then any Rocky movies - Sabbath1 Comment
This technically counts. By far my favourite. - iliekpiez
Marlon Brando is rolling in his grave right now... "he shoulda been a contendah"
This movie is so cringe - VeganTurtle
Why isn't this movie #1
In my opinion this movie should be top the list
This offbeat baseball comedy, starring Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Corbin Bernsen and Rene Russo, was a surprise 1989 hit.
Think "Wild Thing"
Great hilarious movie
A great contender also very underated - robertoantonioortuso
Michael Oher was upset saying they got nothing right about that movie.
This and Hoosiers are my two favorite sports movies. I wanted to cry during some points of this movie. It's a great movie based on a touching story
Best Indian sport movie..
Girls won Hockey World cup... miracle - sabi
It is a must watch movie... King khan was superb in this movie... The hocky team was superb.. Really it is said that chak de India...
Simply the Kingkhan Shahrukh khan effect. Chak de India is the number 1 sports movie in Indian Filim industry
Tobey Maguire was good as Red Pollard, but Seabiscuit steals the spotlight. What an amazing horse. He wasn't the biggest, he wasn't the strongest, and he sure wasn't the prettiest, but yet he still won. He overcame so many obstacles to become the hero of the American people when they needed one the most. He had the heart of a champion, if ever anyone did. - tbrandt
This is the best ever, and its ranked so low
The best made sports movie ever.
Come on now this is one of the greatest storys ever told
Best distance-runner in the history of man-kind. If he hadn't had been in that car crash he would've won the gold. - eaglerunner24
