Most actors (with the exception of Air Bud) are terrible athletes. That's why recreating the intensity and excitement of history's greatest sporting events on the big screen is usually a fail.

So before you get all hype for tonight's big event, check out the 25 Greatest Sports Documentaries of All Time.
