I’ve probably spent more of my life watching and talking about movies than most people would consider healthy or normal.

On two occasions I was privileged to write an article about the greatest sports films for the Tulsa World.

The current assignment is more personal: What are my favorite sports movies and what are five I consider overrated?

Favorite is defined as movies I will rewatch over and over again with little or no decline in interest. “Groundhog Day” and “Pulp Fiction” are not sports films, but have the same effect on me.

Overrated includes, but is not limited to, films about which I am asked, “How could you possibly not think this is a great movie?"
