Which is Your Favorite Gymnastics Movie?

By December 9, 2008

Follow me on:

I think every gymnast and fan has a love-hate thing with gymnastics movies. Though we love to see gym go mainstream, the movies are usually fantastically unrealistic and full of cheese. With that in mind, here are some clips from infamous American gymnastics movies: Whether you actually enjoyed it, or just loved the ridiculousness of it, which gym movie is your favorite? I know it's tough to pick just one!

Did I forget any? Leave a comment and let me know.

White Palms isn’t American, is it? I thought it was European — maybe Hungarian or German?
I think Stick It is only winning because it’s recent. American anthem is the master of cheesy gymnastics movies!
