MOM Star Blake Garrett Rosenthal's Top 5 Sports Movies

Written by Blake Garrett Rosenthal    Sunday, 13 April 2014 00:00   

Blake Garrett RosenthalBlake Garrett Rosenthal stars on the CBS comedy Mom as Anna Faris' sweet and overly-honest nine-year old son, Roscoe. Faris isn't the only comedy giant he's had the chance to act with: Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, Kristin Wiig, Rainn Wilson, are among Blake's co-stars! Acting isn't Blake's only passion - he also loves playing sports. His favorite sport is basketball, but he also enjoys baseball and football. He is a huge fan of the Clippers, Packers, Dodgers, and the Yankees. With such a devout interest in sports -- and with the NFL movie Draft Day hitting theaters Friday - we asked Blake to list his Top 5 Sports Films.

Happy Gilmore1. Happy Gilmore. Starring Adam Sandler as a want to be professional hockey player with an amazing slap shot. He doesn't have the talent to play pro hockey but can hit a golf ball 400 yards. He joins the pro golf tour to raise money to save his Grandma's house. Adam is hysterical and I
spent most of this movie, which I have watched over and over again, laughing so hard my stomach hurt.

Space Jam2. Space Jam. Michael Jordan, whom I got to meet this past summer, joins the Looney Toons basketball team and has to go against an alien
team. It has an amazing cast that includes Bill Murray, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, and Larry Johnson. This is a fun family movie.

The Waterboy3. The Waterboy. Another Adam Sandler movie. He plays Bobby Bouche, a socially awkward water boy who joins the team and becomes the most feared linebacker in all of college football. He leads his team, who couldn't win a game without him, to the Bourbon Bowl. I've watched this movie over a dozen times and it still makes me laugh so hard.

4. 42.  This film tells the story of #42, Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play in major league baseball. He joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 and had to endure incredible hatred and intolerance. This is an amazing real-life story that I also wrote a report on for school. This is a must-see movie for everyone.

Thunderstruck5. Thunderstruck. Starring Kevin Durant, the basketball star for the Oklahoma City Thunder and one of my favorite current basketball players. It's about a 16-year old boy who isn't a good basketball player, who switches talent with Kevin Durant. This is a great movie to see for any basketball fan.

DivergentWell it looks like the Divergent series is doing it right! Just like Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games before it, they're taking a tried and true approach to the final installment of their movie adaptations.

While we always kind of thought this was going to happen, we're finally able to officially say that "Allegiant," the third book in the Divergent franchise will be broken into two feature films!

What does that mean for Divergent fans? Only good things! For anyone who was suspecting a three-movie deal is now getting four!

Every minute detail surrounding the final moments of Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) will be focused on with the utmost detail in Allegiant - Part 1, which is due out on March 18, 2016 and Allegiant - Part 2, set to premiere on March 24, 2017.

This is truly a day for fans of the novels and movies alike. Now, the big question is, where will they be leaving us for the year-long cliffhanger? Only time will tell...
