What's Buzzworthy: Your Favorite Competition Movies

What's Buzzworthy: Your Favorite Competition Movies

Last week I challenged you guys to bookmark the movies about competition that you think are the most Buzzworthy. You all found some great films, including some I've never seen, such as WhiplashGirlchild's suggestion The Cannonball Run. In my eyes, you're all winners just for participating! But since I have to choose a few favorites, here are my picks.

Best In Show, bookmarked by LizaToad and WhiplashGirlchild, is about "'interesting people' competing to win a dog show," according to LizaToad, and "one of the best movies ever!!!"

Dodgeball was bookmarked by Missyosigirl and FitSugar, who says it is a "classic competition movie and funny too.”

To see the rest,

You Got Served, suggested by Missyosigirl, follows the competitive world of street dancing, which obviously has a broad appeal considering that Stomp the Yard was Number 1 at the box office last weekend.

Election, found by WhiplashGirlchild, is a hilarious film about the tense battles fought by high-school presidential hopefuls.

Strictly Ballroom is another great one, suggested by Yiddidea. The film follows Scott, an experienced ballroom dancer who likes to dance his own steps, and his "ugly duckling" dance partner, Fran, as they prepare to compete in the Australian Pan Pacific Championships.

Thanks for the shout out Buzz! I love all of the other choices as well. The DVD menu of Dodgeball is to this day the funniest thing ever. Watching Justin Long get hit over and over again in the face is priceless.
mmmmmm mmmmmm 10 years competition documentary ever! It would have won the Oscar if not for March of the Penguins' popularity

It really is hard to beat Best in Show. Stage mother, stage fathers, psychosis, neurosis, homosexuality, trophy wives...what else is there?

I have two choices.... Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby - which I loved and watch over and over, I love Will Farrell and Sacha Baron Cohen Mad Hot Ballroom - this is the cutest movie I have ever seen, the kids are amazing and so driven to try and win. It makes me want to dance!
