20 Hottest Actresses From Not-So-Hot Sports Movies
20 Hottest Actresses From Not-So-Hot Sports Movies
There have been some great sports movies made throughout history, but probably a lot more bad ones. In fact, great movies such as Rocky, Major League and Caddyshack ended up spawning several more bad films with their sequels. One thing that can help make these bad movies more tolerable is some attractive women.
All 20 movies making this list either didn't garner enough attention to get reviewed, or have been proclaimed ‘rotten’ by the website rottentomatoes.com. Every actress on this list has been proclaimed incredibly hot by me, and in most cases public opinion. There are some big celebrities on this list, some obscure actresses you may not have heard of, and a few who achieved their fame after making a bad sports movie.
Our number one actress is, in my opinion, the hottest woman on the planet. Maybe I’m blinded by love, but I think she’s a much better actress than people give her credit for. She’s been nominated for several Razzie Awards and won one, and her bad sports movie took the Worst Picture Razzie.
Those people don’t know anything anyway. Two of the women on this list have won Oscars on top of their Razzies, so whatever. My number one can still get her Oscar too. If Cher can win one, there’s hope for everybody. Anyway, enjoy the hottest actresses from the worst sports movies, and if you think I've left someone deserving out, please feel free to share.
20. Jessica Biel – Playing for Keeps (4% from Rotten Tomatoes)
A frequent Razzie nominee, Biel also missed with the Freddie Prinze Jr. baseball movie, Summer Catch.
19. Alison Doody – Major League 2 (5% from Rotten Tomatoes)
Though better known as the hot Nazi from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, she also played the evil but hot girlfriend of Rick Vaughn in Major League 2. In the movie, Vaughn chose the cute nice girl over the hot villain, but the real Charlie Sheen would have never done that.
18. Lucy Liu – Play it to the Bone (12% from Rotten Tomatoes)
Before playing the all-time hottest version of Sherlock Holmes’ partner Watson in Elementary, Liu was featured in writer/director Ron Shelton’s lone sports movie miss. The man responsible for Bull Durham, White Men Can’t Jump and Tin Cup definitely swung and missed with this one.
17. Amber Heard – Never Back Down (22% from Rotten Tomatoes)
In a huge sports movie drop-off, Heard went from Friday Night Lights to Never Back Down. Regardless, it’s not hard to see why Johnny Depp locked her up.
16. Jillian Murray – Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown (no reviews from Rotten Tomatoes)
Gamers probably know her better as Dr. Liara T’Soni as she is the model for the character in the Mass Effect video game franchise, but she was also the only redeemable part of a terrible sequel to a terrible movie in 2011.
15. Jordana Brewster – Annapolis (10% from Rotten Tomatoes)
Though much more well-known for playing Vin Diesel’s sister in The Fast and the Furious franchise, the incredibly hot Brewster also made a pretty bad movie about a Navy boxing competition. Now that he is apparently better than making the occasional bad movie, James Franco has announced his embarrassment for starring in it.
14. Cara Buono – Gladiator (25% from Rotten Tomatoes)
To be clear, this is the 1992 Cuba Gooding Jr. movie that critics hated, not the Academy Award winner for Best Picture from 2000. I thought it was a fun underground boxing movie that got a little weird at times, but what do I know? Buono is hot — I do know that.
13. Danica McKellar – Sidekicks (13% from Rotten Tomatoes)
For those who like big brains, Mckellar is a math nerd who graduated summa cum laude from UCLA, and coauthored the Chayes-Mckellar-Winn theorem. Before all that, she played Jonathan Brandis’ love interest in Sidekicks — a movie starring Chuck Norris and Joe Piscopo that was somehow overlooked during awards season.
12. Rebecca Romijn – Rollerball (3% from Rotten Tomatoes)
Romijn is pretty hot, but no amount of hot women was going to save this movie.
11. Francia Raisa – The Cutting Edge: Fire and Ice (no reviews from Rotten Tomatoes)
I can’t say that I've seen this fourth installation in The Cutting Edge franchise or know anyone who has seen it, but I have seen Raisa and she is a knockout. For all I know, this could be the greatest movie ever made, but the fact nobody paid attention to it earns it the ‘not-so-hot’ label.
10. Hayden Panettiere – Bring It On: All or Nothing (no reviews from Rotten Tomatoes)
Another movie I haven't seen, but its direct-to-video status makes it worthy of this list. Panettiere is hot, but not hot enough to make me want to watch the second sequel to a bad movie. If they made a Bring It On where she reprises her role as the unbreakable cheerleader from Heroes, I might watch that.
9. Charlize Theron – The Legend of Bagger Vance (43% from Rotten Tomatoes)
I can't believe 43 percent of critics liked this movie. Boring is the only thing about a movie that I won't stand for, and if you’re going over the top with corniness, you can't also take yourself as seriously as this movie did. Theron sure is hot though, and she’s one of the two from this list who has won both an Oscar and a Razzie.
8. Kathy Ireland – Necessary Roughness (32% from Rotten Tomatoes)
This is one of my favorite sports movies, but not really the type of film critics go for. It was a fun underdog movie that featured a solid cast including Scott Bakula, Sinbad, Jason Bateman and Ireland, who played the team’s distractingly hot kicker.
7. Molly Sims – The Benchwarmers (11% from Rotten Tomatoes)
When Rob Schneider and David Spade get top billing in a movie, it’s safe to assume that movie will get panned. The funniest thing about this film was that the audience was supposed to believe Schneider was a stud baseball player who landed a woman who looks like Sims.
6. Paula Patton – Just Wright (45% from Rotten Tomatoes)
This was an underwhelming basketball movie that features an overwhelmingly hot woman in Patton. Robin Thicke outkicked his coverage big-time.
5. Salma Hayek – Here Comes the Boom (38% from Rotten Tomatoes)
This was an enjoyable movie, but I can see why there wasn't a lot of Oscar buzz surrounding it. Regardless, in her mid-40s, Hayek looks as good as she ever has.
4. Halle Berry – The Program (42% from Rotten Tomatoes)
Our second winner of a Razzie and an Oscar, Berry was a good enough sport to show up and accept her Worst Actress award for Catwoman. About 11 years before that, she starred in the Program, which wasn't a bad movie in my opinion, but I’m in the minority. There is a moment when two players spit in each other’s mouths to get pumped up for a game, but if you just hit pause and put your brain back together after seeing that, it can be an entertaining movie.
3. A.J. Cook – Out Cold (8% from Rotten Tomatoes)
Before starring on Criminal Minds, A.J. Cook was the cute, down-to-earth girl in a 2001 snowboarding comedy. Though critics don’t agree, I thought this was a pretty funny movie with Zach Galifianakis, Thomas Lennon and David Koechner providing some laughs.
2. Maggie Q – Balls of Fury (23% from Rotten Tomatoes)
Maggie Q is a gorgeous action star who doesn't really get the attention she deserves. As a protege of Jackie Chan, the former fashion model also does her own stunts.
1. Jessica Alba – The Love Guru (14% from Rotten Tomatoes)
I believe Alba is a victim of her own hotness. I think people see someone so hot that they think there is no way she can be talented as well, and they get a preconceived notion that she is a bad actress. She has been nominated for Razzies four times and won once, and I don’t think she deserves that. Regardless, nobody can deny how good she looks.
