You'll Get a Kick Out of These
Football films can inspire, enrage, or wrestle tears from the eyes of those who watch them. Some are sad and sappy, others are intense and hard-hitting. At their very best, however, football flicks transcend the sport and highlight the greatest features of the human condition: courage, perseverance, integrity, teamwork. Like all art, movies, of course, are subjective. To remove personal bias, Cheapism ranked the best football movies based on their Metascores from the movie review site Metacritic. Here's a look at the gridiron classics old and new that have embedded themselves into American culture — and for all the Ronald Reagan buffs who will be upset that "Knute Rockne All American" didn't make it onto the list, relax. No dig at the Gipper. The film just doesn't have a Metascore.
