Remember The Titans: Although this Disney production plays it safe for the most part, it's still an inspiring and dramatic tale of a real African American coach (Denzel Washington) who was hired at a desegregated school in Virginia in the 1971.

September 8th, 2009 12:00pm EDT
Knute Rockne Win One for the Gipper
With football season right around the corner, it's time to take a look back at the way Hollywood has immortalized coaches over the years.

Tony D'Amato, "Any Given Sunday"

Oliver Stone's let's-throw-it-all-together-and-see-what-sticks football opus has its faults, but one of them is not Al Pacino's performance as the coach of the beleaguered Miami Sharks. Stone coaxes one of Pacino's last great efforts by allowing...

September 29th, 2008 9:49am EDT
Die Another Day
In John Grisham's bestselling novel "The Pelican Brief," investigative journalist Gray Grantham and law student Darby Shaw uncover a political conspiracy and in the process, end up between the sheets. In the 1993 film version, Darby Shaw (played by Julia Roberts) and Grantham merely share a chaste hug in the film's conclusion. What happened between page and screen? One theory: In the novel Grantham is white; in the film, he's portrayed by Academy-Award winning - and black - actor Denzel Washington.

'Best Of The Little Guy' Sports Movies

Little Giants
One week later, I'm still walking in circles around my house: pinching myself, reading newspaper articles, Tivoing ESPN, and gazing up at pictures of David Tyree. I just can't believe it. The New York Giants, my team, my sloppy, win ugly, stab me in the heart again and again until I'm either screaming or crying or laughing like a crazy person Giants have done the impossible-- they defeated the big, bad, *perfect* New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

It's like something out of a movie. Inspirational. Against all odds. Team victory. In my mind, it's already the greatest sports movi...

For some, they probably cannot think of another activity that provides something for everyone.

And then, there are those families who are looking for a dark room to pass some of the agonizing together time that is annually forced upon them. For many, it is likely a combination of the three.

At any rate, Tinseltown is well aware of this tr...
