Love that movie, but Eric Roberts is so, so bad.

Sorry to see only 2 votes for Win Win for wrestling.  Such a great movie.  Given the age demographic here (myself included) it doesn't surprise me that Vision Quest is winning that poll--the nostalgia is strong, but damn.  If you haven't seen it, give Win Win a look.

surprised Nacho Libre and Kicking and Screaming don't have more love

Nacho Libre is more of a straight comedy IMO than a wrestling movie.

"Look at me. Look at me! Why are we here, Brendan? Why are we here? Are we here to win this fight? You tell me, because if we're not, I'll throw in the towel right now. We'll get Tess and we will go home. You don't knock him out, you lose the fight. You understand me? You don't knock him out, you don't have a home."

Little known (or maybe just little respected) movies that are personal sports favorites:

Boxing: Diggstown

 Very little love for this movie.  It was really entertaining and even included a girl next door version of Heather Graham before she became Roller Girl.  It also had a great twist at the end.

Tin Cup - never understood the caddy shack love 

Cinderella Man - terribly underrated and I’m in the “Rocky is overrated club”

Victory - best of a weak genre

Vision Quest - captured the essence of 80s high school sports for me and since I live the 80s...

But there was another cycling movie in 1985... American Flyers. It stars Kevin Costner, John Amos, Rae Dawn Chong, Alexandra Paul, David Marshall Grant, Robert Townsend and a very young Jennifer Grey (pre-Dirty Dancing). Great movie!

I mentioned it earlier in this thread and agree. Ive seen it quite a few times. Maybe I’ll watch it again tomorrow with a couple other movies suggested here.
