If the game isn’t on, some people will throw on a sports film instead. When it comes to truthfully showcasing sports, Hollywood can be tricky at times. Fortunately, several films hit the mark for everyone watching. These 10 great sports films are perfect for viewing any day of the week.
Caddyshack, which was directed by Harold Ramis, showcases the funnier side of golf. With a cast featuring Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, and Bill Murray, this became an instant hit. For Dangerfield, this was his first major film role following years of stand-up performances on late-night TV. Caddyshack also spawned one of Kenny Loggins’ biggest songs with “I’m Alright.” “They wanted to present [Danny] as a rebel caught in this country club environment where he had to suppress that. I felt like the song should have a f**k-all-you-people quality to it,” Loggins said in Caddyshack: The Making of a Hollywood Cinderella Story.
