    That's because it's not. Just because a flick has bowling in it, doesn't make it a "Sports Movie".

    Anyway, I wouldn't even call my favorite movie of all time, Raging Bull, a sports movie, even though it revolves around a boxer. The best sports movie I've ever seen is probably Brian's Song (not that TV bull****).

    Motorsports would be a different catagory I believe, but yes, Grand Prix was pretty good. Since we went there, some other great ones, including movies with great chase scenes, here are some decent ones.

    On any Sunday (old classic about Motorcycling, narrated by Steve McQueen)
    Heart like a wheel (The story of Shirley Muldowney - Drag racing)
    Vanishing Point
    Dirty Larry, Crazy Mary
    Gone in 60 Seconds (original was good too)
    Little Fauss and Big Halsy (old dirt bike racing movie)
    The Road Warrior (Mel Gibson)
    Driven (Sly Stallone)
    Funny Car Summer
    Bullitt (Steve Mcqueen chase scene)
    Ronin (DeNiro - some good chase scenes)

    Why would it be a different category? "Motorsport" by it's very definition is sport... A film that deals specifically with the sport of F1 has to be considered a sports movie. Not sure how is Dirty Larry, Crazy Mary, Gone In Sixty, Road Warrior, Bullitt,or Ronin qualify as sports films though.... sure they have car chases, but a car chase isn't a sport. If that were the case wouldn't that mean that any film that has a scene with a person running would also qualify. :))

    I could have changed that to "gearhead" movies.....you know..anything involving motorcyles, cars, etc. Since there are very few movies that really deal with car racing, I just threw a few in that were entertaining. Take it or leave it. Don't tell me you have never digressed from a subject...if not..find your nearest bar.
