Researching this list was a tedious and painful test of endurance, which ultimately led me to three unfortunate conclusions:
1. With few exceptions, the 2000’s seriously lacked in both quality and quantity of sports movies.
2. Sure they weren’t all bad, but of the few actual great sports movies of the decade, only two or three of them feature prominent female leads.
3. Of the prominent female leads in quality movies, only a handful of them are decidedly non-ugly.
Thankfully, the decade had no shortage of horrendous sports movies that used hot chicks to distract from the overall badness; thereby allowing me to create a list of more than five girls.
Everybody (besides the movie going public) wins!
