    Open Until Friday evening.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: CF: Best Sports Movies (Final Four)

    Caddyshack 1980 Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Bill Murray
    Danny Noonan is a young caddy at Bushwood Country Club who has no idea about where his future will lead. His best chance at getting his life on track is to earn a caddy scholarship from Judge Elihu Smails, the owner of the Country Club. Al Czervik is a rude, and overly eccentric millionaire who has interests in purchasing Bushwood. Judge Smails shows a quick disliking towards Al and soon there is a conflict between the Judge and Al, the Judge and Danny, and even between the Judge and Ty Webb the charming golfer who is slowly helping Danny figure out his real goals. On the outside of this is Carl Spackler the Golf Course Grounds keeper, who's goal is eliminate a rampaging gopher who is chewing up holes throughout the golf course.

    Rudy 1993 Sean Astin, Jon Favreau, Ned Beatty, Charles S. Dutton
    Rudy grew up in a steel mill town where most people ended up working, but wanted to play football at Notre Dame instead. There were only a couple of problems. His grades were a little low, his athletic skills were poor, and he was only half the size of the other players. But he had the drive and the spirit of 5 people and has set his sights upon joining the team.

    Rocky 1976 Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young
    Rocky Balboa is a struggling boxer trying to make the big time. Working in a meat factory in Philadelphia for a pittance, he also earns extra cash as a debt collector. When heavyweight champion Apollo Creed visits Philadelphia, his managers want to set up an exhibition match between Creed and a struggling boxer, touting the fight as a chance for a "nobody" to become a "somebody". The match is supposed to be easily won by Creed, but someone forgot to tell Rocky, who sees this as his only shot at the big time.

    The Natural 1984 Robert Redford, Glenn Close, Kim Basinger, Wilford Brimley
    An unknown middle-aged batter named Roy Hobbs with a mysterious past appears out of nowhere to take a losing 1930s baseball team to the top of the league in this magical sports fantasy. With the aid of a bat cut from a lightning struck tree, Hobbs lives the fame he should have had earlier when, as a rising pitcher, he is inexplicably shot by a young woman.

    Re: CF: Best Sports Movies (Final Four)

    rudy was an okay movie until Notre Dame got their 1,000,000,000 year, $99,999,999,999,999,999.27 contract with NBC 10 eons ago to televise every game as well as their coaches' bowel movements.

    And I actually got to hear "Rudy" speak.

    Then, I got tired of seeing things "Notre Dame" and came to a realization that "Rudy" is a friggin' idiot. I don't think I've ever heard a stupider human being, and I've taught special ed kids.

    Don't believe me? Rent the movie with the latest commentary; they have "commentary" from Rudy in it, and he makes Troy Davis sound eloquent and over-educated....

    Psst, this is a fun movie poll/thread, like the others. If you want to spew your hate rhetoric, it would be real swell if ya did it somewhere else.
