4 Sports Movie Sequels That Absolutely Need To Be A Thing

We here at Balls.ie are passionate about our Sports films.

Every year we look up IMDB to see what new sports films are in production, and while occasionally you'll get a great documentary or a boxing film, we can't really understand why some of our favourite titles from days gone by haven't been given a reboot.

Hollywood is all about remakes these days, and Space Jam 2 might kick off the trend, but we've a few sequels that could change the game.

Unfortunately, they are not real for the moment, but if we put the energy out there you never know.

The struggles of trying to make it big took their toll on Conway, and eventually he was arrested back home in Minnesota for driving under the influence. Charlie was sentenced to community service, and put in charge of a local pee-wee hockey team. Taking inspiration from his mentor who was saddened to see Charlie repeat the same mistakes he made, Gordon Bombay gives Charlie the advice he needs to make these kids believe in themselves. After all, ducks fly together!

After Happy Gilmore dominates the world of golf following the retirement of Shooter McGavin, he seeks the one title that has alluded him... The Ryder Cup. Gilmore must be at his best to deny Rory McIlroy & co., but can he manage to co-operate with his team-mates and gain the points needed to return The Ryder Cup to US soil? Probably not, and it'll be an Adam Sandler straight-to-Netflix job so it'll be terrible anyway.
