There are plenty of dull sports movies out there (I’m looking at you, Rudy), and if you already find sports boring, watching one of these might just make your brain permanently shut down. Luckily, there are also some really great, entertaining films that happen to revolve around the world of sports. Here are 6 of them!
- The Natural (1984)
I hesitated to include The Natural on this list, because it is a little more sportsy and dull than I would usually recommend. But, when it comes right down to it, Robert Redford is a total dish, and Glenn Close shines along with her signature hairstyle from the ‘80s (read: fluffy and permed). The movie has a pretty solid cast including Robert Duvall, Kim Basinger, Wilford Brimley, Barbara Hershey, and Michael Madsen (who knew?). The mob is involved, so it’s not just a baseball movie, although you will have to see some of that—sorry!
