I like the realistic aspects of the movie. You know, like sawing a truck in half... and traumatic ocular evisceration. Just like the real thing.

Loved both AGS and The Program.

Also liked that short-lived ESPN drama whose name I forget.

I must be getting old... I don't think I could put any given sunday in the top 10.

Let alone #1...

The Longest yard, Blindside, Remember the Titans, Rudy, Brians song, the express, invinceable...

I think it was called Playmakers.. It was great TV, but the NFL was threatening to pull MNF from ESPN if they continued to air it if I remember correctly. Crackheaded running backs, gay tight ends being kept in the closet by owners.. Probably hit a little too close to home for the NFL,,

Friday Night Lights, AGS, The Program, Remember the Titans - all tops in my list.

Any Given Sunday is definitely more a great movie about Football, not necessarily a great football movie...if that makes sense. Oliver Stone did a good job of sensationalizing every aspect of pro-ball.

Ok, so you're putting "Invincible" above "Any Given Sunday"

and Pacino had TWO great speeches in that

the one where he tells Beamon that he is sitting the playoff game and that have Spartucus in the background and the final speech ("its a game of inches, and they're all around us")

And "Blindside" sucked

yea, ESPN had to pull it because the NFLPA threatened to do something and then the NFL stepped in and made that threat

it was a great show though

North Dallas Forty is probably the best football movie of all time, IMHO.

Good point. Of course the story was embellished a bit, but what in Hollywood isn't?

I remember he caught a lot of heat for that role like the guy from "Something About Mary."

Any Given Sunday was an okay movie. Nothing special about it. It was way over the top at times, like anything can happen any given Sunday, but in that movie it happened every single Sunday.

Rudy and Remember the Titans are my two favorites. Any Given Sunday don't really compare to those movies in my book. I like The Program a lot too. It came out when I was in high school and I went to see it with my entire football team, which made the movie even better. We were pretty pumped after watching it.

This.

Rudy, Remember The Titans, The Program, Necessary Roughness, Longest Yard, North Dallas Forty and Friday Night Lights the tv show not the movie, are far and away better than all the other crap football movies and tv shows. I haven't seen Brians Song.

'Friday Night Lights'. But what was the movie where Kathy Ireland was a kicker and Sinbad was an offensive lineman? That one was almost as good.

I liked it because it was realistic, it wasn't romanticized, and it showed a darker side of the NFL.

What? No Jerry Maguire love...tee hee, just kidding, outside of Cuba Gooding Jr and Regina King, I hate that movie..You complete me...puhlease, it's more like you completely annoy me idiot..

As for greatest football movie, I haven't been particularly impressed by really any of them. Any Given Sunday was okay. Friday Night Lights on TV is quite good, but its not NFL related (oddly, I've never seen the movie). The Replacements was funny, but I refuse to list anything with Keanu Reeves as greatest of anything.

See the movie and read the book. Doesn't matter which one you do first; they're both outstanding.
