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

Now, Rocky is the best sports movie of all time. Mainly because it is so relatable to real life situations, and the way Sylvester Stallone just brought Rocky to life was really incredible, so Rocky deserves to be on the top.

boxing is a grat sport to tell the story of rocky, but still a great movie

Sylvester Stallone a boxer and Apollo Creed the father of Adonis Creed. Awesome and cool person and very entertaining as well.

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

2 Remember the Titans

If not already, it will be a classic.

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

Some silly mistakes, but otherwise an enjoyable and meaningful movie

The topic of this movie goes way beneath just a football team trying to win the Virginia State Championship.

3 Rudy

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.

4 A League Of Their Own
5 The Sandlot

Funny and it is about my favorite sport but sandlot 3 was super sad

good kids movie but hopfully it tells kids that no matter what you grow up in you can shine one day

The baseball movie with the dog, I like this movie.

This movie is so underrated

6 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

the newest longest yard the cast is incredible

This is for the Burt Reynolds movie

7 Moneyball

One of the best movies of all time

Brad pitt did an excellnt job

8 Raging Bull

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

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.

9 Happy Gilmore

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

Adam Sandler needs to make more movies that look like this!

10 Slap Shot

The Hanson brothers are so out there.

Top 5 sports movie

It's the only hockey comedy there is, and loled my ass off!

great comedy.

The Newcomers

? Grudge Match

The Contenders

11 Friday Night Lights

Who holla holla holla holla why isn't this in the top 20?

Great performance by Billy Bob Thornton

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.

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 Indiana

13 Caddyshack

"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.

14 The Natural

The Natural is the best


15 Field of Dreams

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.

16 Talladega Nights

There was an actual part in the movie where it turned into an apple bees commercial.

this movies hilarious.

17 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.

18 Coach Carter

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

19 Bull Durham

Wow. 14? You people don't know what a sports movie is.

20 Million Dollar Baby

In my opinion this movie should be top the list

Why isn't this movie #1

21 The Karate Kid

for all those kids who get bullied in school, don't give up hopes and this might happen to you

22 Warrior

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

23 The Mighty Ducks

Quack quack

24 The Bad News Bears

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!

25 Rocky IV

This film is my favourite of all time, so action packed and gets you patriotic for the west, when people could be proud of where they came from. robertoiglesias271 please get a life

This film sucks, it's even worse than Rocky V

26 The Big Lebowski

This technically counts. By far my favourite.

27 Cinderella Man

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

Amazing epic movie. I liked it better then any Rocky movies

28 The Blind Side

Blind sight was by Sandra and it was a very good movie I really like Sandra and is very smart kind and awesome

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

Michael Oher was upset saying they got nothing right about that movie.

29 Requiem for a Heavyweight

Marlon Brando is rolling in his grave right now... "he shoulda been a contendah"

30 Rookie of the Year
31 Major League

This offbeat baseball comedy, starring Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Corbin Bernsen and Rene Russo, was a surprise 1989 hit.
Think "Wild Thing"

32 Rocky III
33 Blades of Glory

Great hilarious movie

34 Hoop Dreams
35 Rush

Ron Howard is Genius when it comes to do sports movies

36 Bloodsport

A great contender also very underated

37 The Wrestler
38 Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story

underdogs, dodgeball isn't much of a pro sport but it describes the best possible story in sports

39 Cool Runnings
40 The Harder They Fall
41 Miracle

describes the greatest most heartwarming feat in sports history, makes me ear up thinking about the next generation to see the underdog position isn't a bad one.

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

42 Against the Ropes
43 Chak De India

Best Indian sport movie..
Girls won Hockey World cup... miracle

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

44 Seabiscuit

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.

45 The Waterboy

funny but describes that you can go from the bench to the hall, just ask kurt warner and tom brady.

47 Ford v Ferrari
48 Chariots of Fire
49 Glory Road
