Return of the Jedi: It took six years, but the Rebels defeated the Empire.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington: Big political win for a wide-eyed lamb among the Washington wolves.

The Bad News Bears: A screw-up little league team and their deadbeat coach use a secret weapon to go all the way to the world series.

Damn Yankees!: Aging real estate salesman Joe Boyd sells his soul to the Devil to become Tab Hunter and lead the second-rate Washington Senators to the league pennant against the Damn Yankees.

Check out other winners here.


  1. Well any Yankee defeat is a good thing - so I like that choice in particular! And of course Return of the Jedi.

  2. I was thinking about Rocky, too, though I didn't include it. I only listed two movies. I loved the Bad News Bears! Gotta check out that damn yankees movie, too! Thanks for visiting me.

  3. Oh, I love old, old Jimmy Stewart movies! Thanks for reminding me of this gem.

  4. How did I forget Rocky and The Bad News Bears?
