BASEketball should totally be in here. Okay it's not a real sport, but it is a sport movie. And it's funny as shit Otherwise a pretty damn solid list. (Rocky 2-4 should be included as well, but maybe that's being a bit greedy...)

It's all largely an excuse for Chaplin to show off his legendary slapstick skills and rubbery physical abilities while poking fun at sports clichés and underdog stories, but it's still more entertaining than most of the films it skewers.



How exactly does Chaplin, in 1915, skewer films that are very very far from being made and poking fun at sports clichés that do not yet exist?

Dodgeball certainly remains one of the classic underdog films, not just for its inspirational value, but its usual comedy, too. And perhaps some of the others could make this list too: http://www.ranker.com/list/best-movies-about-underdogs/ranker-film
