Where would a good sports movie be without a touch of romance? They don’t just add the lovey-dovey stuff in to make girls watch the movie – they are integral to the story. Sportsmen and women have love lives too! And for anyone who doesn’t love sports, having a romantic plot running alongside the triumph of the underdog stuff certainly doesn’t hurt. Watch these sports movies on your own or with your guy – either way, they’re rather good.
1. Bend It like Beckham (2002)
Not only one of the best romantic sports movies but also one of the funniest, Bend It Like Beckham presents a soccer filled fun time with the extra layer of romantic love triangle between star players Jess, Jules and their dreamy coach Joe. Equal parts great sports movie and great romantic comedy, Bend It Like Beckham also gives an insight into inter-cultural and religious romance and all of the obstacles that that can present.
