Re: Best Football movie.

My personal favourite is Gridiron gang, not sure how a couple of them beat it (especially the longest yard)

Friday Night Lights is incredible though

Not sure about Rudy being number one. Can't support any movie that glorifies Notre Dame.

I liked the last boy scout and necessary roughness the most.

I really like all those movies, North Dallas Forty is a good one.

I concur.
For me it's not just the ND thing.
What I don't get is, what is so special about a 28 year old getting in for 2-3 plays in a blowout game? So he dedicated his life to playing ND football and never gave up. Some people dedicate their lives to their families, or charity, or overcoming a disability. You know, worthwhile causes.

The capper is that the real life Rudy defrauded investors in his company to the tune of $400,000. Very inspirational.

sorry for the rant- just never got the allure of that film
