I am a huge movie fan, so I love watching movies about my favorite sport! And team movie nights are one of my favorite ways to bond with my teammates! Here are a few of my favorite soccer movies:
Bend it Like Beckham (PG-13 for language and sexual content) – This one is so much fun! It’s a drama / comedy film about two 18-year-old women with their hearts set on becoming professional soccer players. This is a great film about soccer and a friendship between two women from very different cultures.
The Big Green (PG for some mild language) – This one is a family-friendly comedy about a soccer team of misfits who have some pretty funny quirks. For example, the goalie is so terrified of the opposing team’s forwards that he imagines they’re monsters! With the help of a local sports hero, they gain confidence and eventually rise to be champions!
She’s the Man (PG-13 for some sexual material) – She’s the Man is (so far) my all-time favorite soccer movie. I think it’s absolutely hysterical. Loosely based off of Shakespeare’s “The Twelfth Night,” the story follows the character Violet as she pretends to be her twin brother in order to prove that the girls and just as awesome as the guys are at soccer.
