View Full Version : Top 10 Greatest Football Movies Ever Made

01-18-2010, 01:05 PM
Dell's recent list was the Top 10 Greatest Football movies ever. Wanted to get everybody's thoughts on the list, do you agree with it? What movies should be higher? What movies should have been included in the Top 10?

Personally, I think Varsity Blues should be a little higher. Easily my favorite football movie, high school Quarterback who faces the adversity of "high school politics" in Texas football. Plus the blonde chick's whipped cream bikini ;)

Debbie does Dallas should have made the list.No North Dallas forty.
Wow some really bad movies on that list.Radio and Any given Sunday are laughable.

Rudy was a classic, rightfully paced, even though I hate Notre Dame.

it doesn't matter...what really matters is that the best movie ever was The Godfather.

Ozzy rules!!

I personally thought friday night lights sucked.

Yah it should be Rudy and Remember the Titans 1-2. Radio kinda sucked as did FNL.

rudy is one of my all time favorite movies. they got that one right.

I gotta agree with rudy... Thats where i got my nickname from... Freshman year of high school my football coach started calling me that because I was 5'3 but out hustled the rest of the team on every play... By my junior year and even today only a few people know my real name.

Remember the Titans was good (though it was fabricated a lot). I grew up in the city the Titans play in so it was cool to see it and know the high schools mentioned in the film.

not on list or second stringers
1977 something for joey
I'm not a Penn State fan but it was a good movie

Something For Joey & North Dallas Forty were great. Rudy was ok. The rest were garbage.

01-18-2010, 08:56 PM
All the right moves wasn't even listed, i thought is was good.

Remember the Titans should be number 1 for the simple fact that it has Denzel Washington and the others don't.

What? No Ace Ventura?

I personally thought friday night lights sucked.

How so? I thought it was cool and really showed how important football is to high schools in Texas!

Jim Carrey is the man! I know this has nothing to do with football but he was hilarious in this interview! If it's too long just skip to the last 5 minutes or something. So epic!

The Blind Side and Ace Ventura were robbed!!!!!

little giants should have been there more then friday night lights and varsity blues. How can you beat the "annexation of puerto rico"!??!?!

01-19-2010, 02:33 AM
north dallas 40 not being on that list - in any capacity - is nerf balls. slide that into friday night light's slot - bump fnl to radio's slot - and just forget radio. radio was brutal.
