When the skies are gray and the weather turns colds, there is nothing cozier than curling up on the couch for yet another movie marathon. But when we pop in one of these five fab flicks, we can't stick it out longer than the credits before we get up and get our groove on. From soccer to the balance beam, there are few things that get us moving quite like these movies. Take a peek at our picks, then tell us yours in the comments.
Bend It Like Beckham
It'll be a winter of indoor soccer for you after hitting play on this vintage Kiera Knightley movie. But it's not all goals and wind sprints--nope, this one is loaded with best friend drama, cultural clashes and competition.
Yep, this one's an oldie--all the way from 1994!--but we love it now just as much as we did then. Ask Dad to huddle up in the living room to take this one in, and get ready to cheer on Becky as she ditches her pompoms to play quarterback. When the last joke is cracked and touchdown scored, call up your neighborhood crew for a game of touch football. Hut!
You know those Fisher Price skates you used to shove your light-up sneaks into? Yep, it's time to retire those suckers and lace up a fresh pair of four-wheelers once you watch Ellen Page, Drew Barrymore and Kristin Wigg take on the rink in this girl power movie.
Bring It On
You'll be ready to grab your babes and hit up the next school b-ball game or swim team meet to cheer on your cohorts. Go, team, go!
Rebel Hayley Graham has all the moves but a seriously sour attitude. Will she make it to the top in the tough world of competitive gymnastics, alongside her kooky crew of wannabe Gabby D's. Bonus? Cameo appearance of Nastia Liukin on the bars!
