About This Quiz

Sports naturally translate well to the big screen because they're filled with tension. Think about the best sports movie you've ever seen. Was it about a sport you regularly watch on TV? If a sports movie is well-made, it can even engage people who have no interest in that sport. "The Wrestler" is the story of an aging wrestler coming to grips with his mortality of being an athlete. Even if you've never watched a wrestling match, it's hard not to get engrossed in the main character's story. 

Over the years, there have been some great sports movies released. Some of them like "Miracle" are more about the characters than the actual sport itself. "The Bad News Bears" and "Slapshot" found box office success because of their comedic appeal. Other movies like "Rocky" and "Chariots of Fire" were successful for their ability to inspire us. It's hard not to hear "Gonna Fly Now" without wanting to run up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art like Rocky did repeatedly throughout the Rocky/Creed franchise.

We're going to give you 30 questions that will help us recommend a movie to you. We can't promise that the movie we recommend will be available on Netflix, but we're certain you'll love it. Ready to find out what movie should be next on your to-watch list? Then let's get going!
