10 Simply Terrible Sports Movies

10 Sports Movies That Were Simply Terrible

PA: Philadelphia Premiere of Rocky Balboa - Afterparty
Getty Images

There are bad movies, and then there are bad sports movies. And then there are terrible sports movies. When they are terrible they can be hard to watch, or painfully fun.

10. Talladega Nights

The scene with him jumping out of his car on fire was pretty funny. The rest was borderline abomination and felt longer than Braveheart and Titanic combined.

9. Like Mike

The first movie role for Lil Bow Wow (ugh) was a performance as the 14-year-old star NBA rookie who lives his dream because he stumbled upon an old pair of Air Jordans that allegedly belonged to the man himself. Couldn't he have just slipped on the ball, break his arm and become the master of the hook shot?

8. Rocky V

This movie is so bad it's nearly impossible to even refer to it as a guilty pleasure. The thing is a chore to watch and features horrendous acting and an even worse story. Really? A street fight? Nobody would have complained if they had a sanctioned boxing match. Enough nonsense has happened in all of the Rocky movies that it wouldn't have been far fetched to put them in a ring to at least make it sort of feel like a movie from the same franchise.

7. Caddyshack 2

Who thought this was a good idea? Were they intentionally trying to soil the good name of a comedy classic like the original? I really can't think of any other excuse.

6. BASEketball

I consider this to be a superb guilty pleasure. From the creators of South Park comes a movie that resembles a really long sketch from Mad TV. Parker and Stone were likely just making a film to entertain themselves and somehow it got a worldwide release.

5. Air Bud

The original was very bad but a cute enough movie for kids. Too bad they didn't stop there. This has spawned a sprawling and horrifying horde of movies about increasingly dumb puppies playing sports and their dumber owners looking inept for 90 minutes worth of mind numbing "jokes".

4. Semi-Pro

Did this really happen? I have to assume these movies keep getting the green light because Will Ferrell has proof of something heinous being done by the men and women in charge of all of the decision making in Hollywood. He plays a basketball player from the 1970s and spends his time with his sidekick Jon "Napoleon Dynamite" Heder, and neither of them do anything mildly interesting or funny.

3. Ed

Not quite sure why Matt LeBlanc decided that this would be a good career move, but thankfully Friends continued for another eight years after this was released. A monkey third baseman. That is what this movie is about. Ed is no Dunston, that's for sure. Oh, and why did LeBlanc dress like Ernest while not in uniform?

2. Ladybugs

The premise of this movie is absolutely ridiculous. Rodney Dangerfield has a terrible girls soccer team and needs to ensure that they win, so he enlists his stepson, who wears a wig and some makeup. Nobody, including the other girls on the team, seems to catch on. It's actually really creepy, but it's all okay in the end!

1. Matilda

A guy brings a boxing kangaroo to America in hopes to find some success. The kangaroo (a male named Matilda for some reason) ends up knocking out the World Champ at a carnival. They suddenly let a dangerous wild animal headline shows and become a star. This is like every bad movie you can think of combined into one. Even worse, they strongly considered using a real kangaroo instead of a man in a suit. And the issue wasn't even safety related, it was just too hard to film it in a viewer-friendly fashion.

There are bad movies and then there are bad sports movies. And then there are terrible sports movies. When they are terrible they can be hard to watch... or painfully fun.

Tosh Rips 4-Letter Network

ESPN was not thinking ahead when it basically ripped off Tosh.0‘s ‘Web Redemption’ segment. Or, the four-letter network just didn’t care. Either way, Daniel Tosh is rightfully upset. He let ESPN have it on a recent episode of his show.

If you're tired of ESPN, this video is for you.

Tim Tebow Debuts On Good Morning America

Tim Tebow‘s days of playing quarterback in the NFL may be over, but it appears he has a very good second career in front of him. Tebow debuted on the SEC Network a couple of weeks back as an analyst, and now he’s stepped into the national morning spotlight on Good Morning America as a special contributor.

The former college star kicked off his GMA career in tremendous fashion, as his segment about a 10-year old with prosthetic legs who loves to play football was very well done. Check out Tebow as he makes his GMA debut:

The former QB posted this photo of him and Deven Jackson on Instagram:

“Deven Jackson is unstoppable and an inspiration! YOU motivate me, Deven. #MotivateMeMonday”

Charles Barkley Has New One-Handed Swing; Still Bad At Golf

Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley was a beast on the court back in the day. Nowadays he’s one of the best NBA studio analysts. But when it comes to Sir Charles on the golf course, he’s just straight up turrible.

The hitch in Barkley’s golf swing is infamous. He nearly comes to a full stop before hitting the ball, which clearly isn’t a good approach. So with that in mind, the Round Mound of Rebound decided to make some alterations before the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship this past weekend.

Sir Charles is now rocking a one-handed swing:

The one-handed approach did not help Barkley, as he finished dead last in the tournament.

Michael Sam and Stuart Scott Deliver Powerful Speeches At 2014 ESPYs

It’s easy to make jokes about the ESPY Awards. The ESPN-created concept acts as an Oscar night for sports, and the world of sports doesn’t exactly need an awards show. Most of the time the presentation seems forced and over the top.

But each year there are great moments at the ESPY awards. These moments happen when great people are recognized for their efforts. This year Michael Sam was honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, and Stuart Scott was honored with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award.

Both speeches are inspirational and must-see:

Video of Yoga Instructor’s Routine Before First Pitch is Hot

No matter how bad the first pitches of 50 Cent and Carly Rae Jepsen were, they aren’t half as crazy as first pitches in Taiwan. As you’ll see in the video above, this yoga instructor absolutely wowed the crowd at these Taiwanese game by stretching out and then stripping down before finally tossing the ball to home plate. Put simply, MLB needs to take note of this for future reference.

Hunter McIntyre's Exclusive Interview Will Make You a Spartan Race Fan

If you haven’t yet discovered Spartan Races and the superstar of the sport, Hunter McIntyre, your sports life is about to improve. First of all, if you haven’t heard of Spartan Races, they are obstacle races that make the traditional steeplechase look like a stroll in the park. Secondly, if you haven’t heard of McIntyre, he’s probably about to become your favorite athlete.

We asked McIntyre to sit down and answer some questions that aren’t the typical “How did you feel after destroying the competition in that last race?” Instead, we wanted to get to know the man himself and the crazy backstory that comes with him. Big thanks to Hunter for sitting down with us and conducting the video interview above. Here are some highlights:

Hunter’s favorite animal is the hippo. If you think that’s off the wall, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

He lives in Malibu, Calif., a place he describes as “pretty much vacation 100 percent of the time.” However, he wants to visit New Zealand because he says the No. 1 way to die there is extreme sports, so he feels like he’d “really click with the people.”

“Nacho Libre is one of the greatest movies of all time.”

“I don’t believe in super powers; I’ve already got super powers, so I’m gonna skip that question.”

He would want Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to play him in a movie because “he and I are both jacked” as he flexes his biceps for the camera.

Becoming a pro wrestler is his dream job, expect for he’s “stuck mud running now.”

He got the nickname “The Sheriff” because he would tell his friends “you’re messing with The Sheriff and you’re all going to jail” when they would “get really messed up” and do some “sketchy sh*t.”

If he wasn’t doing Spartan Races, he’d love to do anything that shows what kind of man he is, but he was quick to let everyone know “the Spartan Race is the sh*t, though.”

His friends told Mens Journal that he once climbed a 50-foot tree during a storm and was “leaping like a squirrel” from one swaying treetop to another. However, Hunter says that’s not the craziest thing he’s ever done; while jumping from those trees, he says he would let his body go limp “kind of like in those Jackass shows” and just bounce off trunks and limbs all the way down to the ground.

Of course, the punch line about the crazy stuff he did was “stealing Mom’s Range Rover and going off-roading; she doesn’t know about that.”

Trust us, after this awesome sit-down with McIntyre, we’ll definitely be following up for more. And to check out the hilarious selfies he posts online, follow Hunter on Twitter or “Like” his Facebook page.

Jace Williams Gets Close and Personal in Exclusive RantSports Interview

We sat down with the newest of the RantGirls, former Cal softball player Jace Williams, for a get-to-know-you conversation and man, did she wow us. Not only is she really easy on the eyes, but she’s pretty much the coolest chick you’ll ever meet. Check out her exclusive video interview above!

Some tidbits from her interview:

She absolutely loves laying out and getting a tan by the pool or on the beach. She mentioned that multiple times among her hobbies and when we asked what she would be if she could be any animal: She said a snake so she could just lay out all time. Gotta love the way this babe thinks!

There’s definitely no music career in her future as she admitted she has a “terrible voice” and won’t sing for anyone. We won’t hold that against her!

She also admitted she enjoys coaching and playing volleyball more than softball, although the latter gave her more opportunities in college and allowed her to stay on the West Coast. Gotta love a multitalented girl!
