Classic Sports Scenes from those Non-Sports Related Movies!!

Sports tend to find their ways into movies even when that movie isn't about sports.  Here are our top 10 scenes from movies totally unrelated to sports:

The Big Lebowski
Jesus and Bowling = awesome

Meet the Parents
This scene reshaped my teen years, thank you Ben Stiller

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Finally saw this movie in college.  Go to about the 6 minute mark to see the real stuff.  Watch for a young Nicholson obviously but more so, Danny Devito and Christopher Lloyd.  Awesome film overall too.

The Social Network
Another overall great movie and the twins here lose this match adding to their dilemma of not getting any Facebook credit.

The Cable Guy
As a kid, I thought this movie was a complete failure compared to Dumb & Dumber and Ace Ventura but now in my mid-20s, I can see this Carrey film as one of his better works.  Skinny Jack Black!

Old School
I mean, man, what an epic scene. Vaughn and Ferrell at their finest.

Wedding Crashers
Vaughn was on cruise control with films like Old School, Dodgeball, and Wedding Crashers. The gay son steals a line here but it's the young, still unknown Bradley Cooper doing the real damage, hilarious.

Forrest Gump
Tom Hanks is just amazing. This scene sums up Forrest Gump.  Just run...

Along Came Polly
I won't lie, this is ranked so high because it's a HUGE personal favorite of mine.  Philip Seymour Hoffman is one of the best in the business and this movie overall is just him doing great work.

Good Will Hunting
Probably a little surprising eh? If you didn't know Good Will Hunting is a top 5 favorite movie of mine because Matt Damon is arguably my favorite actor. Robin Williams really gets you going in this.
