So, today is the Superbowl or something I guess. I don’t know, football is maybe my least favorite sport to watch, but I love football movies. And there have been some really good ones. Here are my faves:
I didn’t want to like this movie but it was really enjoyable. Keanu Reeves as a retired quaterback come back to lead a group of bottom-of-the-barrel players who fill in when the pros go on strike. And yes, that is Jon Faveru and Roy from “The Office.”
Disney knows how to grab audiences. This movie about a racially segregated town coming together over on and off the field tugs at your heartstrings. As a bonus, there’s Ryan Goseling. SQUEE!

No list of football movies is complete without this one. It’s a classic, and with good reason.
