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 Ten

1 Rocky

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...

Yo Adrian!

2 Remember the Titans

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. - opinionated4

3 Rudy

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.

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

4 A League Of Their Own
5 The Sandlot

9 kids, a sandlot, and neighborhood story. Enough said. - NiallersNandosXOXO

7 The Longest Yard

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

8 Raging 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.

This is the best sports movie without trying to be a sports movie - TheGameBoy815

The Hanson brothers are so out there.

10 The Mighty Ducks

The Contenders

11 Moneyball

One of the best movies of all time - MattCozadd

Brad pitt did an excellnt job

12 Hoosiers

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 sports movie ever made

13 Space Jam

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

14 Happy Gilmore

Nice movie, full family entertainment barring a couple of scenes of course that I censor

15 Caddyshack

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

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