    Does Invictus count? Set in South Africa but starring and directed by Americans.

    Funny enough I just discovered it on Netflix and watched it again on Monday. Took me back to my teenage years when I must have watched it at least 20 times - still knew loads of the words as I sat watching it. Classic.

  10. Watched it last weekend, Tim Robbins, hilarious as "Meat". Susan Sarandon steals the movie for me though

    The Fortune Cookie
    Jack Lemmon is flattened by player Luther "Boom Boom" Jackson at a football game. Lemmon's lawyer brother-in-law "whiplash Willie" Ginrich (Walter Matthau) advises Lemmon to exaggerate his injuries and sue.

    Not a lot of football in it but a great film.

    Yeah I think it was called the Mean Machine in the UK as it was thought a British audience wouldn’t understand the Longest Yard title

    I forgot about the film '42'. The Jackie Robinson story and how he became the first black pro baseball player to play with the white folk.*
    Good historical drama with the backdrop of brave men wanting to knock down barriers just after WWII. Also gets the seal of approval from Robinson's missus so it's a fairly accurate piece.

    I love baseball. It's just a sport that throws up interesting story after interesting story. Only boxing films rival the sport for good cinema in terms of numbers produced imho.

    *Mebbys - Moses Fleetwood Walker aside.

    I watched that after Cat mentioned it before. It is good.
