Football Movies Women Will Watch

I might be stereotyping here, but I’m mostly speaking from experience: women aren’t that into football movies. At least, I know I’m not. And, a lot of lady friends sure aren’t. That doesn’t mean men can’t get their girlfriends and wives to watch a football movie. You can beg and plead, or you can take the easier route: pick a football movie she will enjoy. If your girl likes comedies, you can go with any of the movies listed in this article – Five Funny Football Movies.

Or, you can go with one of the movies below. If you have any suggestions, post them in the comments box at the bottom of the page.

Jerry Maguire

Even if Tom Cruise is considered a nutter these days, he still has a super cute, dimply smile. This romantic comedy with Cruise and Renee Zellweger is a crowd pleaser. You get a silly smart kid, a fabulous dance from Cuba Gooding, Jr., and some sexy shots from Kelly Preston. Oh yeah, and Cuba Gooding, Jr., without his shirt on is pretty hot.

This is a winner you will both like.

Forrest Gump

Wait, Forrest Gump is a football movie? Of course it is, you’ve seen it, right? If not, rent it and watch it with your lady. It is a fabulous movie that will make you laugh and cry, plus you will get your football fix. Starring Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, and Sally Field, this 1994 film is a classic. Gump gets a college scholarship for football, and end up on the All-American Team in 1963. See? It is a football movie.

School Ties

This movie takes place in a fancy prep-school. It isn’t only about football, but also involves class and discrimination issues. The guy will enjoy the football scenes, but the lady will enjoy watching all of the hot guys in the movie: Brendan Fraser, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Chris O’Donnell, Anthony Rapp, Randall Batinkoff, and Cole Kenneth Hauser. Let’s see, that seven cuties. You’ve got a winner. Plus, it has an interesting plot.

I have to admit that I haven’t seen this movie yet, but I want to. It’s a romantic comedy with the sexy George Clooney. I’m sure I can handle the football part of the movie. The film is set in the 1920s, and set to release in April of 2008. All I can say is that the previews look good.
