    I think someone lost a fingernail scraping the bottom of the barrel to compile that list.

    Yeah, I'm thinking so on this one. What's next? The top 10 movies in which a poor girl falls in love with a rich guy who rejects all the rich hotties wanting his meat because he wants a "real" love.

    Yeah, any list that includes Radio and Wildcats, the Goldie Hawn-as-coach vehicle, and isn't "Worst (fill in the blank) movies of all time" is definitely looking for a deeper barrel.

    How about Goldie Hawn in ANY role ...

    *Top 10 movies showing the U.S. Army in a ridiculous light
    *Top 10 movies regarding a bizarre crime plot and a circus-like cast of criminals
    *Top 10 movies regarding over-the-hill ladies acting more immature than their own children

    The Best of Times should be in the top five.
  7. In School Ties, Brendan Fraser is "fighting Jewish intolerance" at his school?
    I do not think this sentence means what he thinks it means.

    Nice Princess Bride reference...assuming that's what you were doing there.

    School Ties wasn't awful, though I was dead center to the target audience on that one.

    I like this kinda stuff and I never saw No. 1 on this list... yeah, definitely scraping the bottom...

    You could argue that "The Last Picture Show" was a High School football movie which would move it right to top behind Friday Night Lights and All the right Moves.

    All The Right Moves was low budget event - but maybe best pure football story - plus the added bonus of the lovely young leah thompson

    Varsity Blues was way better than that.

    just post high school but did anyone ever catch "The Junction Boys" - Sometimes ESPN classic shows it.

    Its one of better football movies that I have seen - HS - Colleg- Pro.

    They didn't actually play football in that movie, otherwise it WOULD get a nod.
