Haha do you know what he did in it? But you really need to watch it. Probably the greatest sports movie of all time.

Most def.

And I just couldn't get into "Hoosiers" even though I'm a HUGE fan of Hackman. It's weird.

He was one of the basketball players he had a few lines I couldn't tell you who he played though unless I saw it. He's not a bad looking guy I always wondered why he never went for Hollywood he has the looks to pull it off.

It was a great movie (and this coming from a long time Bears hater) I was upset when they remade it a few years back.

Dang so many... hard really to screw up a movie for me if it's sports related.


I'm shocked none of you listed Ice Princess or Cutting Edge 1 & 2 ... lol, I actually do like them.

More recently, We Are Marshall was powerful for me... really touching.

Obscure memory... I liked Amazing Grace and Chuck... dang, for the life of me the baller's name slipped my mind... he was one of the scorers from the Nuggets of yore.

I recall watching the movie about Rocky Blier (<sp? Franco Harris' backfield mate)... that was something else... dude had a tough life. I think that was back in the day when I saw JD's Brian Song (the original).

Also loved the ones K mentioned... Glory Road & Coach Carter.

Ooh! I loved Eddie... sad to think about Malik though.
