Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Identify Our 10 Worst Movies Starring Athletes?

Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Identify Our 10 Worst Movies Starring Athletes?

Feb 20, 2013

Strap on your helmets and bite down on your mouth guards, it's time for another Poster-Crop Quiz. We're taking the worlds of cinema and sports and smashing them headlong together in honor of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, the WWE wrestler turned actor who stars in Snitch, in theaters on Friday. Now the Rock is arguably the athlete who has most successfully crossed over into being an actor, but if there is one thing we've learned from movies past, it's that making that transition can be trickier than the hook and ladder, the no-look assist, and the windmill suplex combined. Even Mr. the Rock can't boast a flawless record in this regard.

This week, we've assembled a team of posters from the filmic playbooks of various jocks who attempted to line up in front of the camera instead of on the field, court or in the ring. In keeping with last week's change of pace, we've again rated the 10 selections to make things a bit more complicated. This time around, however, we are bringing you the 10 worst movies to feature athletes. That means number one will be the worst, and the movies get slightly better from there.

See if you can guess all 10 films from their cropped posters. Don't agree with the order? Notice any glaring omissions? Post your own list in the comment section along with your guess. The winner will receive a shout-out next week. See how you preform as you tackle this quiz.

To start us off, here's the theatrical poster of 1996's Kazaam. Let's see, the only thing worse than trying to turn Shaq into an actor... oh yeah, casting him as a centuries-old genie who lives in a boombox. Perfect!
