    What is rounders? Never heard of that movie.

    Re: CF: Best Sports Movies (Elite Eight)

    I had a hard decision between Bull Durham and The Natural...

    I went with the Natural...

    Has anyone else read the book? It is excellent too... But the ending is NOTHING like the move. I want spoil it here... but I do recommend the read.

    Rounders is a poker movie with Matt Damon and Edward Norton. I love the movie, but no way it beats Rocky.

    Rounders is very good. Definitely worth a rent.

    It is unfair to have Caddyshack in this contest. The contest should be about the greatest sports movie ever, besides Caddyshack.

    I never really liked Caddyshack myself. I think it's good, and I think it's pretty funny, but I've never thought it was one of "the greatest movies ever." I still think it's in a completely different league from Happy Gilmore, but I really hope it doesn't win the whole thing.

    Caddyshack in a landslide. One of the greatest comedies of all time. I love Rocky and Hoosiers also.
