    The Longest Yard and Rudy for very different reasons. Great films.

    I would not nominate Any Given Sunday for anything, because it distorted the reality of the game. It took every corrupt aspect of football and magnified it to the point where it was almost laughable. A QB went from humble (actually sick to his stomach), to obnoxious and then reasonable in a matter of weeks.!!! That's just one example. I could go on with the "owner", "coach" and "media" portraial. BTW, the only perspective NOT addressed in the film was that of the fan.

    If Hollywood wants to produce another solid sports film in the future, I'd suggest FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. It's one of the best stories I've ever read.

    The Longest Yard was by far the best comedy football film of all times. I've gotten my best sayings from that movie that I still use today.

    i like Titans, Friday Night Lights (book), THe Program, All of that stuff

    s**t i bet i could recite Rudy line for line (You're 5 foot nothin... a Hundred and Nothin")

    but still i voted for Any Given Sunday -

    Why? Even tho its cheesy at parts, i felt it was true to the spirit of the NFL as it is today - the drugs, the shady doctors, interfering owners, LL bling bling doing blow off of some hootchies - Pacino was Parcells-esque. I loved the untraditional camera angles, the fact that the first 10 mins made me want to puke seemed about right-- thats how pro football is - quick, sudden, violent, drugged to the gills - in the end a little sickening.

    But in that good way...

    The Waterboy is by far the hardest hitting, best choreographed football movie of all time. That, my friends, is a sad statement on the quality of football movies.

    Any Given Sunday and Remember the Titans were about as weak and cheesy as a football movie could possibly be. Sometimes you see these movies and you have to ask yourself if the cinematographer ever actually SAW a football game.

    I can't like Remember The Titans, because every time I think of a team with a gay QB it reminds me of the Pats.

    I think the hi-lights of Gale Sayers plays alone makes "Brian's Song" the all-time best.

    Besides its sentimental and so am I. Also truth be told, my first name is Brian so I was always drawn to the title.

    lets not forget the scene in the Last Boy Scout, where the running back pulls out a 9 mm and starts shooting the defense. that might even be a tad over the top for the jets / skins game

    Also, you can&#39;t forget the futuristic football-esque game that Rico and Dizzy play in "Stormship Troopers." Tight, gay uniforms, a chrome football, really lame helmets and the ability for everyone to do a complete front-flip from a standing position. Now THAT&#39;S a classic football scene&#33;&#33;&#33; <_<

    I notice that nobody has given the nod to [SIZE=2][b][url=http://us.imdb.com/Title?0092214]Wildcats[/url][/b][/SIZE]&#33;&#33;
