The Five Best Super Bowl Movies
5. Where the Buffalo Roam (1980) The big game Hunter S. Thompson was supposed to cover is mostly an afterthought here, as apparently was any attempt to make Bill Murray physically resemble HST, or the movie's own legacy following Gilliam's superior 1998 effort or last year's documentary Gonzo.
4. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) Private investigators looking into the disappearance of Sean Young should probably start with Ace Ventura, her last known big screen whereabouts. But hey, at least there's one alternate dimension where Dan Marino finally got a ring.
2. Heaven Can Wait (1978) Truth is stranger than fiction. In the film, a professional QB is reincarnated as a wealthy industrialist who buys the Rams and convinces his old trainer to let him lead them to the Super Bowl. In reality, all the Rams needed was a Bible-thumping former grocery stockboy/ex-Arena Leaguer with a hard-on for opposing stem cell research to get them their first NFC championship.
