Definition of the sports genre for the purposes of this 50 from “filmsite.org”:
Films that may have a sports setting (football or baseball stadium, arena, or the Olympics, etc.), event (the big game, fight, race, or competition), and/or athlete (boxer, racer, surfer, etc.) that are central and predominant in the story. Sports films may be fictional or non-fictional; and they are a hybrid sub-genre category, although they are often dramas or comedy films, and occasionally documentaries or biopics.
A list of popular sports films for reference:
- Million Dollar Baby
- Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
- Chariots of Fire
- Bend it like Beckham
- The Sandlot
- The Big Lebowski
As always refrain from any filming of nudity, strong language or other behavior that wouldn’t be able to be shown on Broadcast TV.
