You don’t have Any Given Sunday in your top ten?
For me Al Pacino started believing his own hype around that period.
Forget any given Sunday, where is Mighty Ducks!
Top of my head.
Any Given Sunday
…and the rest…
Rocky IV (come at me)
The Mighty Ducks
Bad News Bears
A League Of Their Own
Honourable mention: Cool Runnings
So not a Pacino glamour pic.
Sorry to quote myself, but any of those films…you watch the first ten minutes…even now, you will not stop.
I know there are some serious sports movies, but not going to lie, this is my favourite final game portion of any movie.
It has it all.
-the redemption arc
-the cheesy bad guy
-choosing the right girl
-the slow mo finale.
Wasn’t a fan of the ‘masturbation’ scene.
I was of an age.
Kinda turned me off the movie.
I’m supposed to be sleeping.
9 posts and no Happy Gilmore. You people are monsters and should all go home. Why don’t you go home? Are you too good for your home? ANSWER ME
I think I like the comedy/sport hybrid more now that people bring them up.
The second lead is literally bludgeoned to death in slo-mo.
Edit: Bloody hell, I’d forgotten how good this film is.
I’m a huge fan of movies in that genre that generally people think suck.
For instance; I think Semi Pro is amazing. Makes me laugh every time I see it.
Farrel has made heaps. Blades of Glory was good.
What’s the SouthPark one?
Oh and Dodgeball is a classic.
I did enjoy The Replacements
Ha I just asked what the SouthPark one was. Basketball was great.
Telladega Nights is one of my favourite movies
Major League is right up there.
The Rob Lowe ice hockey tour de force, Youngblood, has one of the best (in a totally cheesy sense) 80s montages to hit the screen.
