'Draft Day' goes behind the scenes of America's favorite cold weather pastime. This Kevin Costner vehicle shares the turf with these gridiron classics - must-sees for any armchair quarterback.
The Longest Yard (2005)
In this remake of the 1974 Burt Reynolds original, Adam Sandler plays an imprisoned pro quarterback forced to form a football team in the big house. We wonder if their uniforms are regulation orange.
The Replacements (2000)
During a professional football strike, substitute players are hired, including shaggy-haired quarterback Keanu Reeves. Dude, working as a scab? Not very righteous.

Sandra Bullock, sporting a blonde wig and later an Oscar, plays the real-life woman who takes in a homeless young man and helps him on his path towards becoming a first round NFL draft pick.

Knute Rockne All American (1940)
Ronald Reagan plays George "The Gipper” Gipp, a halfback, quarterback and punter, in this biopic of Notre Dame's legendary coach Rockne. The real "Gip" ran 2,341 rushing yards. Reagan successfully ran twice for president.

Little Giants (1994)
Shawna Waldron plays fullback Becky “Icebox” O’Shea in a boys’ team run by her father in this family sports comedy. We'd like to think her fans would chant "Ice, Ice, Baby!"
All the Right Moves (1983)
A baby-faced Tom Cruise plays a high school defensive back in this drama that combines sports and romance. Co-starring Lea Thompson, who shot a notoriously steamy love scene with Cruise.
The Express (2008)

Adam Sandler tackles the role of waterboy turned defensive linebacker in this wacky sports comedy. He goes from cooling off the players to heating up the field.
Remember the Titans (2000)
Denzel Washington inspires a racially divided high school football team in this drama based on the true story of coach Herman Boone. In the end, the Titans win and racism loses.
We Are Marshall (2006)
After a plane crash kills 37 college football players, Coach Matthew McConaughey leads the team on a healing journey as they regroup and rebuild. Alright, alright, alright.
Horse Feathers (1932)
In this classic comedy, the Marx Brothers play defense and offense, throw banana peels on the field, and drive a horse-drawn garbage wagon across the gridiron like a chariot.
