There are plenty of movies that involve American Football from College, High School and the NFL. What's your fave? I found a list of them on Wiki, some are kids movies and comedies that don't have American Football as the main subject:

- Remember The Titans
- All The Right Moves
- Rudy
- The Express
- We Are Marshall
- Any Given Sunday
- Friday Night Lights
- Air Bud: Golden Receiver
- The Blind Side
- The Comebacks
- The Game Plan
- Gridiron Gang
- Jerry McQuire
- Leatherheads
- Invincible
- The Longest Yard
- The Replacements
- Waterboy

Any others?

Out of those ive seen -

Remember the Titans, Jerry Maguire, Gridiron Gang, We are Marshall, The Longest Yard, Friday Night Lights and the Waterboy. Id like to see The Express, looks pretty good if its the one im thinking of.

Remember the Titans is one of my all time favourite movies. So so good, I can watch it all day haha. I love the based on a true story films so I liked We are Marshall and Friday Night Lights as well. Im pretty sure Gridiron Gang was based on a true story as well.

Isnt The Whole Nine Yards an American Football based movie? Ive never seen it so im not too sure lol.

Probably the best American Football movie I've ever seen. Watched it twice yesterday. Another true story set in the 50s about a black running back going through his life from a youngster through college. I recommend it to anyone.

Top 3

1. Remember the Titans
2. We Are Marshall
3. Gridiron Gang/Friday Night Lights

Cant really say much about Longest Yard and Waterboy as they are both comedies. Great movies though but not in the same quality as the others lol.

Thats exactly how I feel aFc, comedies never rate higher than action and drama for me.

The Longest Yard with Burt Reynolds.

It was called Mean Machine when first released in Australia as the distributors thought us Aussies would struggle with the term yard.

The Best of Times is a great movie, No nonsense flick that only concentrates on Gridiron and that's it.

i absolutely love the friday night series. very good buy imo


out of the movies i like we are marshall but it is a bit sad knowing it was a true story.

also liked remember the titans and gridiron gang.

i agree with hendo and afc about the comedies though. i prefer the gridiron and mostly sport movies to be more drama rather than comedies....

Oh yeah, 'The Longest Yard' is also really good, and 'Any Given Sunday' is pretty good as well.

Just watched 'The Blind Side' for the first time. For those that don't know it's a true story based on the life of Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher. Definitely worth a watch, I really enjoyed it.

There's one movie I've got to watch, can't remember the name, but it's about a guy that is desperate to play one game of College Football for Notre Dame. Can't really remember anything else about it, but according to a mate, it's pretty darn good.
