#20 – The Longest Yard (remake)
Yes, the "The Longest Yard" remake polled higher than the original. That sound you hear is your grandfather rolling over in his grave. The other sound you hear is a Hollywood executive green-lighting a "Slap Shot" sequel starring Stephen Baldwin and Gary Busey. What? That already happened? Nine years ago? Kill me.
#19 – The Replacements
It's the story of unwanted, marginally talented football players playing pro football. Basically, it's what could have happened if the 2011 NFL lockout had dragged on. Or what every Raiders season looks like.
#18 – Little Giants
It's the story of unwanted, marginally talented football players playing in a pee-wee league. In a lot of ways it's similar to "The Replacements," except that untrained children are far better actors than Keanu Reeves ever will be.
#17 – The Bad News Bears (original)
In 1976, a movie about a drunk coach leading a team full of crude, disrespectful kids really caused a stir. Now you can see that at pretty much any community park in America.
#16 – Kingpin
Sixteen years after it was released, "Kingpin" is still among the funniest sports movies. Of course, the fact that West Virginia football coach Dana Holgorsen looks exactly like Bill Murray's Ernie McCracken has helped it remain relevant.
