BH Box Office: 5 Inspirational Sports Films You Should Be Watching Tonight

Welcome to Boss Hunting’s weekly Box Office series where every Sunday night, we’ll be dishing out our favourite movie picks from various genres to watch while settling in with a cheeky order of Uber Eats.

Who doesn’t love a feel-good sports flick? Before getting stuck into their five favourite sports films you should be watching tonight, Jack and James used the app’s group order feature to clearly and easily dial in various order preferences from Sushi Train (Surry Hills), including salmon nigiri, gyoza, and karaage.

In no particular order – and by no means as a definitive list of options – we present to you five BH-approved sports flicks that’ll sort you out for the weekend.


Based on the fantastic read by Michael Lewis, Moneyball is the story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) and his attempt to put together a championship-worthy baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players. He recruits bargain-bin players with the help of Ivy League graduate Peter Brand (Jonah Hill).

Remember The Titans

It’s hard to believe this one is over 20 years old, but Remember The Titans is not a sports flick we’ll be forgetting any time soon. In 1971, high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria, Virginia. When the local school board was forced to integrate an all-black school with an all-white school, the very foundation of football’s great tradition is put to the test.


Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton command the screen as two estranged brothers facing the fight of a lifetime in Warrior. Hardy’s Tommy and Edgerton’s Brendan end up on a collision course for a showdown in the cage, with both risking it all in desperate attempts to claim the biggest winner-takes-all prize in MMA history. A rousing tale of redemption, reconciliation, and the power of the human spirit.


Two-time Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard brings to life the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda in Rush. With Chris Hemsworth as hotshot Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl as Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed in the golden era of Formula 1.

The Longest Yard

A remake of the 1974 classic, The Longest Yard is perhaps the least obvious Adam Sandler sports film, but a banger nonetheless. Disgraced NFL player Paul Crewe (Adam Sandler) lands in jail, where manipulative Warden Hazen (James Cromwell) recruits him to advise the prison’s football team in their match against the guards. Aided by incarcerated ex-NFL coach Nate Scarborough (Burt Reynolds), Crewe and his team must overcome not only the bloodthirstiness of the opposition, as well as the corrupt officials trying to fix the game against them. This movie never lets up from the moment you press play. A great story with a fun cast making it an easy Sunday night winner.
