Best Sports Movie Ever

We thought after seeing Dan in a skin-tight jumpsuit, you might need a break from being horrified. The boys decided to go long, get down low and pick the best sports movie ever in a hail mary play.

Watch Video

Maybe this should of been rename Best kids sports movie ever? (What, no Any Given Sunday, Rocky, The Substitude, Cool Running? Ok that was more of an comedy film.) Before you asked, yes I have seen the Mighty Ducks.

Remember the Titians
It had Turk.

I'm going to have to go with Bloodsport. Sure, I've never seen the film, but it's called Bloodsport, so it's simply got to be the best sports movie ever.

Dang. Can't do much now Chris. They got your star player.

Great show. I loved it, and I don't even care at all about sports.

:D Good show!

Seconded. Maybe not for the exact same reason, but it did have Turk in it. That always gives it the edge.

Seconding this. What was with the two kids' movies?

Actually...question: Would the Rocky movies count for this discussion?

Agreed. And even in "Kids Sports Movies", I'd argue for Bad News Bears (original with Walter Mathau) over both Sandlot and Ducks COMBINED.

Heck, even Kicking & Screaming, the Will Ferrell soccer movie, is funnier than these films.

Red Oni:
BASEketball?

Greatest sports movie ever made.

Sandlot has Darth Vader, which means automatic win.

But Cool Runnings is the sports movie.

I kind of feel like boxing doesn't count, our would be in it's own category. If you don't have a team our anyone that you have to learn to get along with, it's less a sport movie and more a personal journey

C'mon Dan, you like hockey and you didn't mention either Slap Shot or Miracle? For shame.

I'm going to go with A League of Their Own.

Chris wins before it even starts. The Sandlot beats out any other sports movie. It had Darth Vader and Denis Leary and is, along with The Goonies, one of the best childhood movies ever.

I'm going to draw the highbrow card and go for Raging Bull, only because Rocky is too obvious.

My favorites are Necessary Roughness (love this one since I'm from Texas) Major League for sports comedies and Hoosiers and Rudy for genuine sports dramas. I'm not really big into sports or sports movies in general but if its good I would be willing to see it.

Wow, absolutely pathetic. Neither movie belongs in the discussion. Neither is one of the top 5 sports movies, probably not top 10. I mean, how many sports movies have these two seen, anyways?! They just look foolish trying to pitch two forgettable movies in a genre that has given us such masterpieces. I think this video has finally shown us a right answer. These two should never touch a sports topic again. They just shouldn't.

Somehow I've never seen Mighty Ducks 1 even though I've seen 2 like 5 times. But Kyle makes a good point that The Sandalot isn't really a sports movie, but a coming of age. It doesn't contain much baseball and climaxs with getting the ball back instead of versing the kids in the other town in the sport.

that tittle had me expecting cool runnings vs space jam this leave me dissapointed. it was still good but come on the mighty ducks and a movie I've never heard of wat the F.

Bad News Bears.

I have fond memories of both of these movies, but Chris was really out of his league (heh) on this one. Hells, Kyle should have gotten a point just for Chris bringing up the Sandlot sequels vs. The Mighty Ducks sequels.

HOWEVER...

Chris:
Swat Kats is f-in AWESOME!"

I think I have my new ringtone. <3 Swat Kats.

I was going to give it to Chris, because his one has a big cuddly doggie (and Swat Kats is pretty frikkin sweet), but that ball line just hit too hard and fast. One might say....like a Fast Ball!

.....I'll just leave that joke at the door.

And who are you to decide what they should talk about on their show, what makes something a good sports movie, what counts a forgettable, or even what choices they choose to debate about?

Also, two questions regarding Chris' shirt:
1. Where?
2. How much?

no love for space jam :(

Knight's Tale is a sports movie. (I know it wouldn't really work in this competition but I think it would be funny to pit a game like Sandlot against a Knight's Tale). Just cause it's funny.

Chris couldn't win this one. Not because The Sandlot sucks, it's a good movie, but it's not a sports movie. Also, I don't know why this wasn't pointed out by Kyle, but they're not a team. Yes, they play one game against a team, but that's just for bragging rights.

Yeah probably. It at least better than both mighty ducks and The sandlot (i love both those movies tho). ALso better sports movies;

The Replacements
The Rookie
For the Love of the Game
Major League
Miracle
Friday night lights
A League of Their Own
Rudy

The Waterboy or Bad News Bears(Walter Matthau version).

Sandlot: not a sports movie.

But, given that I don't really like any sports movies, eh all the way across the board.

Unless A Knight's Tale counts. A Knight's Tale was awesome.

Not a movie but still worth mentioning.

Of the two Mighty Ducks was a better sports movie, but for straight entertainment value Sand Lot was better.

Look up levelupstudios

Glad Mighty Ducks won (with both flawless logic and an awesome quote). Loved that movie as a kid :D
