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.

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

The Rocky franchise is excellent (with the exception of V). Boxing movies, in general, are better choreographed than other sports movies.

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

2 Remember the Titans

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

If not already, it will be a classic.

Some silly mistakes, but otherwise an enjoyable and meaningful movie

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.

The most inspirational sports movie of all time. It's crazy that it's not on every top 10 list of best sports movies

Every time I watch Rudy, at the end I shed happy tears. Every Time.

4 A League Of Their Own
5 The Sandlot

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

THE film of my childhood.

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

Lets talk about how remember the titans is higher than this movie, the GOAT sports movie

6 Field of Dreams

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.

Wow! Number 10? Happy gilmore is supposed to be a better movie than this? Shame! Rocky and titans should be right below this one.

"If you build it, he will come." It's been a LONG time since I last seen this movie, but I can't forget that line.

7 Caddyshack

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

You'll get nothing, and like it.

Funniest of them all

8 Raging Bull

This is one of the best films ever, should be at least top 3, if not number 1! It's a better film than rocky, but not as enjoyable. Additionally, it's one of the best directed movies ever and Robert DeNiro's performance is the best acting performance since Marlon Brando in The Godfather.

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 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.

9 Moneyball

It's pretty interesting

10 The Karate Kid

Better than the reboot by a long shot, as is always the case in my humble opinion.

This movie aged so well and always will.

Never give up

The Newcomers

? Surf's Up

Funny and inspiring

? 80 for Brady
The Contenders
11 Rocky IV

This is one of the best movies ever! Droggo is the best villain ever. He literally killed Apollo with a boxing glove. Rocky was furious at Droggo. So Rocky wants to fight Droggo. People tell him not to fight Droggo because he killed Apollo, but Rocky never listened. He did the greatest training montage ever. The montage was better than the montage In the first movie.
And Hearts on Fire is a classic that is music to my ears. 4th best movie ever. 1st best sports movie

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

The only sports movie that boils my blood every time I watch it.

Should be much higher.

12 The Longest Yard
13 The Natural

The Natural is the best

14 Bull Durham

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

15 Rocky III

Not as great as IV, but good still.

16 Hoosiers

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 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.

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

This should be #2

17 Happy Gilmore

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

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

18 The Blind Side

A great heartwarming story even if the adaptation was not entirely factual.
At end of the day, it's a true story of a lost child with no future other than to end up dead or in prison, taken in by a caring and loving family that allowed him to overcome the odds and grow up to become an NFL professional athlete with a Super Bowl Championship. Something only attainable in people's dreams.

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.

Best sport movies

19 Space Jam

I loved this one.

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.

20 Brian's Song

If you don't cry during this movie, you are not human. Total tear jerker.

21 Talladega Nights

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

Honestly really hilarious. If you ain't first you're last!

22 Slap Shot

The Hanson brothers are so out there.
