The 5: Most Underrated Sports Movies

So the Oscars are in the rear view mirror until next February, and judging from the lack of attention they got at this year’s gala, 2012 wasn’t a great year for sports movies.

That hasn’t always been the case. Since 1976, 11 sports movies have been nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. Three of them — Rocky, Chariots of Fire and Million Dollar Baby — won the award.

But for every critically-acclaimed sports movie, there are dozens of underrated and under-appreciated sports flicks.

Here’s my personal list of the five most underrated sports movies. (Click on the titles to view trailers).
