It’s Super Bowl Sunday! To celebrate Moviefied style we pulled together our Top Three Football movies. So, before the game, or in-between epic million-dollar commercials, or if your just not interested in watching the 49ers tear-apart the Ravens (you’re probably watching Downton Abbey), check out some of our cinematic football favs. Then get back to watching the Ravens cream the 49ers…and dream of winning” just one for the Gipper…”
David’s Top 3 Football Movies
1. Horse Feathers (1932)
Prof. Ouincy Adams Wagstaff : “What ever it is I’m against it.”
Prof. Ouincy Adams Wagstaff : Tomorrow we start tearing down the college.
Professors: But, Professor, where will the students sleep?
Prof. Ouincy Adams Wagstaff : Where they always sleep. In the classroom.
2. Heaven Can Wait (1978)
Max Corkle: This isn’t going to work. You’re playing football with a bunch of butlers!
3. Knute Rockne All American (1940)
I’m from Indiana, I gotta put this on here.
“Sometime, when the team is up against it—and the breaks are beating the boys—tell them to go out there with all they got and win just one for the Gipper…”
Myrna’s Top 3 Football Movies
1. The Last Boy Scout (1991)
Sheldon ‘Shelly’ Marcone: Football is a dyin’ beast, Joe. No heroes left. Not anymore. Since ol’ Sonny Werblin paid four hundred thousand dollars to Joe Namath in ’66, the son of a bitches have just gotten greedier. God Almighty, when’s it enough? Jesus, free agents. “Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme.” Now you got guys on PCP wiggin’ out and shootin’ themselves on the field. The American public is piss-pot tired of it, and they’re changing the channel.
2. Friday Night Lights (2004) Ivory Christian: Ya’ll playing like a bunch of little girls!
3. Any Given Sunday (1999)
Tony D’Amato: On any given Sunday you’re gonna win or you’re gonna lose. The point is – can you win or lose like a man?
