6. Cinderella Man (2005). As I’ve indicated in the past, I really enjoy true story movies. Here we have another telling of the former heavyweight champion, James Braddock. Russell Crowe is excellent as the lead, and the movie depicts how big the sport of boxing was in the early 1900s.

If you can’t wait that long, though, here are eight other films in which tennis makes an appearance.

A Good Year
Ridley Scott’s 2006 rom-com sees Russell Crowe play a frenetic match against a Provencal wine-maker to the sound of Harry Nilsson’s Jump into the Fire.

His opponent’s dog is named Tati after famous French comic Jacques, who played a memorable match himself in Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday.

3. THE NICE GUYS: Shane Black’s rollicking action-comedy was one of 2016’s under-seen gems. Black’s third directorial effort (after Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3) failed to make a big splash at the box office, earning back its budget my only seven million dollars, but The Nice Guys should not be underestimated so quickly. Since it was considered by HBO for a series at one point, there’s no reason the title can’t still find second wind on television.

The Nice Guys is a hilarious, action-packed romp that pits a two-bit private eye, Holland March, with a thug for hire, Jackson Healy, in the investigation of a porn star’s murder. March and Healy, played brilliantly by Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, soon uncover a shocking conspiracy that goes all the way to the highest offices in LA’s government.

March and Healy would play wonderfully in any form, whether it be in novels, comic books, or video games, but the medium it could work best in, aside from film, is television. Hopefully HBO saw The Nice Guys and their interests have piqued accordingly.
