‘Sports’ Screenplays

One of the ‘Primary Genres.’

There are 13 ‘Primary Genres’ we’re all familiar with. Here’s one of them, explained.

Movies in the sports genre will center around a team, individual player, or fan, with the sport itself to motivate the plot and keep the story advancing. These movies aren’t entirely focused on the sport itself, however, mainly using it as a backdrop to provide context into the emotional arcs of the main characters.


Sports movies can be dramatic or comical and are often allegorical. Some popular sports movies include The Bad News Bears (1976), A League of Their Own (1992), and Bend It Like Beckham (2003).
