#25 – The Longest Yard (original)
The 1974 original is the oldest movie on the list, proving the enduring entertainment value in seeing those in authority getting the crap kicked out of them.
#24 – Varsity Blues
It's the story of a small-town Texas high school that places huge importance on football. Sounds more like a documentary. Oh, wait. James Van Der Beek is a star quarterback? There are your laughs.
#23 – Major League II
The sequel to "Major League" couldn't quite live up to the original. Blame Omar Epps' Willie Mays Hayes.
#22 – A League of Their Own
Geena Davis was the star, Rosie O'Donnell provided comic relief and Madonna was a sex symbol. Wow, 1992 was a really long time ago.
#21 – D2: The Mighty Ducks
Emilio Estevez doesn't have much of a movie career nowadays, but at least he can claim that his sports movie sequel holds up better than his brother Charlie Sheen's does. Also, he probably doesn't have a potpourri of porn star-provided venereal diseases. Good job, Emilio.
