This extremely 1991 Die Hard ripoff is only ambiently a football (or sports) movie, but it still feels like one in some important ways. Also Ken Wahl's hair is great.
Paul "Bear" Bryant is one of the most iconic figures in college football history. So yeah, Gary Busey would be the obvious choice to play him in a movie.
What if I told you that a pair of magical shoes could turn a tapped-out bumpkin character into a basketball star in a movie that manages to disrespect every major religion, and many other things? (It's a rhetorical question, that is what happens in Slam Dunk Ernest.) (Sorry for any confusion.)
The Sixers won a basketball game! Now what?
Michael Ritchie's Reagan-era ode to high school football has some weird ideas on race and gender, and refuses to check its privilege or anything else. It somehow works anyway, or maybe because of that. Also Goldie Hawn.
