Sports Movies for People Who Hate Sports

Friday, February 19, 2010

For all the people out there who couldn't care less about the Olympics, NASCAR or the Super Bowl, but are forced to live in a world where everyone else does, this week's movie segment is for you. The topic: sports movies for people who hate sports.

Chris Ryan, writer for rollingstone.com, walks us through what makes a good sports movie (and a bad one) if you're a sports-hater. He also shares some of the best of the genre, ranging from Blades of Glory to Bend it Like Beckham.

The Takeaway is asking: love or hate sports, what are your favorite sports movies?
