‘Blades of Glory’ Only Sports Film in Top 20 Grossers

Looks like it wasn’t a good year for sports cinema. SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY reports that only one athletically-inclined film cracked the top 20 list of money-making movies in 2007.

According to THE MOVIE TIMES, “Blades of Glory”, the figure skating farce starring Will Ferrell and Jon Heder (a.k.a. Napoleon Dynamite) finished at #20, grossing over $118 million since its March release.

Only four other sports-related films placed in the top 100, including the memorable ping pong saga “Balls of Fury” (#71, $32 million) and the charmingly-named “Mr. Woodcock” (#81, $25 million). If you’re curious to see where “Who’s Your Caddy?” landed, check this list.

But fear not, sports cinephiles - next year’s “Semi-Pro” is certain to go box office boffo!
