Top 5 Bowling Movies
Bowling in the News…
With the Lebowlski Fest taking place this past weekend in New York City, GoBowling.com, the bowling industry’s official website for consumer promotions and entertainment, teamed up with Strike Ten Entertainment to name “The Big Lebowski” as the number one bowling movie of all time. The top five bowling movies are:
1. “The Big Lebowski” (1998) – The Coen Brothers’ flick has amassed a passionate fan following with its ensemble cast of bowling buddies: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi, providing iconic one-liners and popularizing White Russians and bowling leagues.
2. “Kingpin” (1996) – This close second featured memorable performances from Woody Harrelson and Randy Quaid, but it was Bill Murray as Ernie McCracken who stole the show with one of the most famous poses to appear in sports movies.
3. “Racing with the Moon” (1984) – An 80’s cult classic that features two of the most popular celebrities of today – Sean Penn and Nicholas Cage – as two friends who work in a bowling alley.
4. “The Flintstones” (1994) – Fred and Barney paved the way as members of the first bowling league in this early 90’s classic featuring a Stone-Aged John Goodman.
5. “Grease 2” (1982) – The bowling center served as the local hangout for Michael and Stephanie, and was also the birthplace of the classic hit, “We’re Gonna Score Tonight,” while also serving as one of Michelle Pfeiffer ‘s first major motion picture.
