9. Million Dollar Baby - $100,492,203

Boxing movies have a surprisingly strong presence on this list, and Million Dollar Baby’s box office numbers are the most surprising. It wasn’t a very fun movie to watch, so it’s odd that so many people went to see it, but it was a huge success critically, it cleaned up at the Oscars, including winning Best Picture, and the marketing campaign tricked people into thinking it was a female version of Rocky. Protests by disability rights activists may have stirred up some curiosity as well. All those elements combined made this the number one feel-bad sports movie of all time. Seriously, it’s depressing.
