Sports Films With Highest Box Office Gross

Directions

Name the sports films with the highest box office gross. I used both Box Office Mojo and IMDB to classify a film as ‘sports’ and in a couple instances my own judgment – a main character had to be involved in sports and sports had to be a main theme of the movie. I did not include animated sports-based films such as Cars.

Enter guesses above to begin.

This is a pretty loose definition of sports movie if Forrest Gump and Snatch are in there.

I’d vote no on Gump, I wouldn’t call it a war movie either. Drama/Love Story. Hoosiers didn’t make enough $?

Rollerball and Whip It were the two I tried that I was most surprised weren’t there, but I don’t know whether either of them grossed enough.

Warrior, Rush, The Wrestler? Forrest Gump is not a sports movie IMO.

I have a few that I think should be included, which I’ll list from least of a stretch to most of a stretch:
Invictus (2009) – It’s about rugby, should totally be here.
Brewster’s Millions (1985) – Richard Pryor’s character is a minor league baseball player, and a big part of the plot is him getting his team to play the Yankees and then retiring.
Snatch (2000) – If Forrest Gump is on the list because of his football scenes, then Snatch should be on because of its boxing scenes. They’re much more central to the plot.
Trainwreck (2015) – Again, if Forrest Gump and Jerry Maguire count, than this should. The male lead is an athletic surgeon, there are multiple pro athletes, and a lot of the movie revolves around basketball and cheerleading scenes.
Gladiator (2000) – Boxing, wrestling, and MMA all count as sports on this list, Gladiator battles were the sports of their day, just more lethal, but this movie is still about an athletic performance performed before a crowd.
