From AV Club website....they rank their top 11 Sports Flicks in which the featured teams or athletes did not win....Whip It was ranked #8.

Nice that Whip It is ranked among some other great sports films like Kingpin and Tin Cup. Good little write-up on Whip It...with a trailer to the film.

Note that films like Hoosiers or Miracle did not make this list.....remember those teams "won"

Warning: If you have not seen the film yet.....this may be a "spoiler" thing. Ummm....hope I didnt go spoiler on the thread title :D Especially for our British Ellen fans (Whip It due out in April)

Well Bull Durham is one of my all time favourite movies and I think it deserves the number one spot. :wink:

Personally....when I am not being a total Ellen-homer :biggrin: Kingpin is my fave on the list....Bill Murray wins Oscar just for that baaaadd comb-over :laugh:
