Hilarious, Well-Known Movies That Are All About Bowling

When a sport becomes popular, it does not take long until it is immortalized on the silver screen. After all, a movie can show drama and comedy in a way which is not always possible with the real sport unless under extremely fortuitous circumstances. Here is a look at some of the most memorable bowling movies ever made.

1. Mystery Men

Ok, so this is a bit of a cheat since the movie is about superheroes, not bowling. However, it does feature one superhero called The Bowler (played by Janeane Garofalo) who uses a magic bowling ball in order to subdue her enemies. The film was a comedy and a spoof on the superhero genre. Despite an all-star cast including Ben Stiller, Geoffrey Rush and William H. Macy, the film didn’t do so well, although it still maintains a minor cult following.

2. Kingpin

This is the ultimate bowling movie. Again a comedy, this one is completely centered around the sport of bowling and also has a veritable cast of actors including Bill Murray, Randy Quaid and Woody Harrelson. It is also a tale of redemption with Harrelson’s character struggling to get back to the top after being betrayed by Murray’s character, Ernie McCracken, the best bowler in the world. While things don’t turn out so well, this is still a movie recommended to all fans of the sport.

3. The Big Lebowski

This film is not so much about bowling, although the sport is featured prominently in it. However, this comedy is undoubtedly considered a classic by people who have absolutely nothing to do with bowling and one of the Coen Brothers’ best. With an all-star cast including Jeff Bridges, Steve Buscemi, John Goodman, Julianne Moore and John Turturro, this is definitely a movie to see.

When you are done watching movies and want to go practice bowling, you will need proper equipment, such as a 4 ball bowling bag. You can find this and more at, all available at affordable prices.
