Hi, my name is Matt, and I absolutely love sports movies (to the extent that everybody else apparently loves Marvel movies). And, my girlfriend Alicia has basically never watched any of them…ever. So, every week, I bribe Alicia with a box of Milk Duds and a can of Dr. Pepper so that she will sit down, watch a new sports movie with me, and then get on the mic and talk about it (for as long as it takes).
014 – A League of Their Own Review
This week I made Alicia watch the 1992 Tom Hanks / Geena Davis baseball classic – A League of Their Own – a movie kinda based on actual events and actual people…but with lots of great Hollywood literary license taken to spice things up a bit for the screen.
013 – Over The Top Review
This week I made Alicia watch an absolute classic film from my childhood – one of my favorite Stallone films of all time…and about one of the greatest sports that didn’t really survive outside of the 80’s (super unfortunate) – yep, it’s Hawk and Son on a cross-country big rig road trip…get ready for Over […]
012 – Bring It On Review

011 – Happy Gilmore Review
This week we make a detour and I make Alicia go out to the local drive-in for throwback thursday and watch another great 1996 golf movie. Not since the days of Tin Cup have we ventured into the Tiger Woods inspired era of 1990’s golf movies – this time around it’s the Adam Sandler classic…Happy […]
010 – Bull Durham Review
This week, we begin the Kevin Costner trinity of Baseball movies – it’s the minor leagues, it’s a little insane – it’s Costner, Sarandon, and Tim Robbins – This week I made Alicia watch a movie that is about baseball, about love, about breathing of the correct eyelid (the left), and kind of a lot […]
009 – Dodgeball Review
This week we enter the high-stakes world of Obscure Sports with a World Championship the likes of which we will never see again – we’ve got Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Justin Long, Jason Bateman, Chuck Norris – and many more greats…this week I made Alicia watch Dodgeball!
