    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned "When We Were Kings".

    My favourite ever sports documentary film  . It's about the Rumble in the jungle - Ali v Foreman in 1974 . 

    I can't believe someone said Green Street .  One of the worst films ever made .

  • King Of Kong is a fun documentary about competitive arcade-gaming that's made in the format of a Rocky style sports film.
  • Always had a very soft spot for Remember the Titans. And The Waterboy obviously
  • The Wrestler
    The Fighter
    Million Dollar Baby
