As sports fans, we consume almost everything that involves the sport we love. From TV shows to movies, we eat them all up like there’s no tomorrow. From more than 20 sports movies we’ve watched, here are our top 3 favorite sports movies of all time.
This Best Picture-Academy Award-Winning film narrates the humble beginnings of Rocky, played by Sylvester Stallone. With his slurred speech, sad eyes, and great acting and writing (yep, he wrote the screen play), Stallone introduces himself into the world as a certified superstar.
- He Got Game
Ray Allen surprises everyone that he can share the spotlight with Denzel Washington in this Spike Lee-directed movie. This sports drama will leave your hearts with love and affection for Jesus Shuttlesworth and his dad.
According to the late great Roger Ebert, He Got Game, is Spike Lee’s best movie since Malcolm X, and if that doesn’t excite you, we don’t know what will.
- Jerry Maguire
Starring Tom Cruise as a sports agent, Cuba Gooding Jr. as a wide receiver, and Renee Zellweger as Cruise’s love interest, Jerry Maguire is a love story that made the lines such as “You had me at hello” universal. With that kind of star power in a movie and a huge cultural impact, it’s no wonder it’s one of our favorite sports movies of all time.
