Still love it - there's no coming of age rule or OP parameters that the movie has to be just about the sport. The Sandlot isn't about baseball. A lot of movies just have a sport in it as a backdrop to frame the story.
Has a lot cycling and a race at the end. It qualifies in my book...
I was complimenting the moviemakers in using a tool seamlessly. I think that's harder. Obviously, Remember the Titans
is first, and foremost a football movie. The fact that it does a lot more than that during the running time is one of the things that makes it a good movie. Breaking Away
, and to a certain point the original Rocky
movie were able to make the sport itself, secondary to the journey of the main character.
