It's a classic. I read an article a little while ago that was ripping Billy Crystal's character for being a sexist jerk, and while the writer was completely correct, I feel like they kind of missed the point. Yeah, he's a sexist jerk, but he's intentionally a sexist jerk.

It's strange because I really dislike Ashton Kutcher in every other thing he's made. But I like this movie.

Sport movies and the sport. No repeating sports.

1- Wimbledon (tennis)





(We'll count any sort of movie in which some sort of athletic competition is a meaningful part of the plot as a sport movie. Fictional and non-professional sports allowed)
