Watching good family movies about sports is a fun way to bring everyone’s passions together on movie night. Say your son loves basketball, but your daughter has zero interest in watching a game. Or you’re nuts about baseball, but your husband would rather have a good laugh than watch a kickoff? Sports movies bring together the best of both worlds. They also just might get your non-fan a little more into the sport, so she can enjoy her brother’s next big game a little more! Here are some good family movies about sports!
