The World Cup Has Ignited A Burning Debate Over The Best Soccer Movie Of All Time


The World Cup can cause a lot of conflict: countries from all over are battling it out to see who reigns supreme as the soccer champion of the whole planet. Feelings are running high, battle lines are being drawn, and everyone has their opinions about who is the best of the best.

And all that emotion has found a new outlet. Now, people are debating what the best movie about soccer is, because we don't have enough to fight about. It all started with an article from Broadly, titled, "'She's the Man' Is the Most Important Soccer Movie of All Time."

In it, writer Noa Azulai says the 2006 film starring Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum offers everything you could want in a family-friendly movie about the greatest ball-kicking sport in the world. Her reasoning is sound. As a kid, Azulai was the only girl on her soccer team, and Bynes' character in the movie pretends to be a boy so she can play soccer on the only team at her school. It was meaningful for her to see that as a young person.
