Sean D'hondtsaid on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 8:31:09 PMThe Best of Time (1985) Shouldn't be be on the list, but its a wonderfully underrated film that people should check out. Peace.
RPondsaid on Thursday, September 29, 2011 2:28:37 AMI like THE LONGEST YARD. I hated the Adam Sandler remake. ALL THE RIGHT MOVES reminds me of high school too. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is my favorite. I wore out the VHS tape of RUDY. The Nick Nolte film will be on my list to watch. Cool list.
thomassaid on Friday, September 02, 2011 11:00:53 PMWhat...no Varsity Blues? Or Any Given Sunday? Hahahaha.
nonyasaid on Friday, September 02, 2011 2:12:13 PMI agree with 3 choices, Jerry Maguire was forgettable to me and Remember the Titans was brutally manipulative.
that said you made me want to watch/rewatch all the right moves, Friday Night Lights,.... possibly Rudy, not sure & definitely North Dallas Forty.
I personally feel The Program should have ranked higher and THANK ALL THAT IS HOLY you didn't mention On Any Given Sunday!!!!!! which was weak sauce and stupid enough to show a player losing his eye and them scooping it up.
Ron Burgesssaid on Thursday, September 01, 2011 12:52:29 PMGood list, Replacements should have been on it though lol
Kalesaid on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 8:42:38 PMI love your picks Mr. Roeper, and thanks for mentioning Remember the Titans. That is My personal favorite.
Jeffsaid on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 1:54:27 PMWhat about Any Given Sunday?
Great cast and one of the most memorable speeches ever.
Dan Skip Allensaid on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 2:51:20 AMThese are my favorite football movies of all time From the Fourth Row!
A. Ellissaid on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 12:44:26 AMVery solid list. While Rudy might be corny and sentimental, I do think it deserves to be on any football movie list. No shame there.
I'm curious to know your thoughts on Any Given Sunday.
Marvinsaid on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 11:53:37 PMGreat list; two others I would include in the honorable mentions list are Oliver Stone's "Any Given Sunday" and Ericson Core's "Invincible".
