Top Five Worst Sports Movies
When sports and Hollywood collide, it's not always a pretty picture. Kidzworld takes a look at some sports movies that struck out!
#5. Worst Sports Movie - The Cutting Edge
An ex-hockey player gets a second chance at an Olympic gold medal when he meets a figure skater. Soon enough, they become a couple on, and off, the ice. Aww, how romantic, right? Not at all. Romantic comedy lovers will probably agree that this movie is totally corny! The most exciting moment in this movie comes when the pair attempt to pull off an impossible and extremely dangerous stunt to win the gold. Somehow incredibly dangerous and figure skating just don't go together.
#4. Worst Sports Movie - Summer Catch
This movie made the list for one main reason - Freddie Prinze Jr. Freddie is possibly the worst actor of our time. In Summer Catch, Freddie plays a pro baseball prospect playing in a summer league in Cape Cod. Along the way, Prinze's character falls in love with a rich girl from town. With its lame and predictable jokes and sappy romantic lines, this movie seems to go on forever. The only good thing about Summer Catch is Jessica Biel, but she can't make this movie worth seeing!
#3. Worst Sports Movie - Like Mike
Surprisingly, Bow Wow has a little bit of basketball game, but he unfortunately doesn't have a lot of acting game. Bow Wow plays an orphan who finds a pair of magical shoes that make him an incredible basketball player. Suddenly he can dunk from half court (okay, that's a slight exaggeration) and he finds himself in the NBA where, at not more than three feet tall, he dominates the likes of Dirk Nowitzki, Allen Iverson and Tracy McGrady. This movie also tries to get ultra sentimental as Bow Wow deals with fame and abandoning his fellow orphans. Take our advice and keep walking when you see Like Mike in the discount bin at the video store.
#2. Worst Sports Movie - D2: The Mighty Ducks
The first Mighty Ducks movie was actually pretty good. It had the typical sports movie plot - a coach inspires a bad team, then they win it all. In D2 it goes way overboard. The Ducks go from winning a local league in the first movie to taking on the world in the second. This movie has basically the same formula as the original. That's the problem with sequals; they can never live up to the first movie. The sequels to the Bad News Bears, Major League and Rocky could have easily made this list.
#1. Worst Sports Movie - Juwanna Mann
A basketball player in drag? We've seen this type of script before with Ladybugs, Tootsie and Mrs. Doubtfire. The man in drag always falls in love with someone who thinks he is a woman and in the end, they always get caught and their true identity is always revealed. Juwanna Mann has all these things, but unlike those other movies, it's not the least bit entertaining.
