[Celluloid Hero]’s Top 5 Football Movies

Bye weeks are intolerably long, and the anticipation leading up to the Super Bowl leaves us starving for some action. Rugby doesn’t quite cut it, so here are my [Top5] football movies to feed your addiction!

5 – Rudy

The reason that this falls to number 5 is that in the years after release, it seems like nearly everything about this movie has been revealed as fiction. Everybody knows that when a movie is “based on a true story” we can expect some embellishment for dramatic purposes, but some of the best moments of this movie were just completely made up.


4 – The Program

Somewhat unknown, but a fun look into a college football program. It includes some pretty ridiculous exaggerations, but it also includes a young Halle Berry and Kristy Swanson.


3 – Any Given Sunday

When I first saw this movie years ago, I loved it.  I tried to watch it again recently, and I had totally forgotten just how manic Oliver Stone’s editing is.  The story is still good, but the overabundance of edits can be distracting.


2 – Remember the Titans

This is one of those “stop and watch” movies.  Like “Rudy”, I understand that a lot of it was Disney-fied, but I’ll still sit down and watch whenever I see it on TV.


1 – Varsity Blues

Football and babes. That’s pretty much it.
