Like many sports movie fans, I find the conventions of the sports movie both stultifyingly familiar yet oddly comforting. So when I saw the trailer for Andrew Disney’s Intramural recently, I knew I’d have check it out at the 2014 Seattle International Film Festival. While /Film readers didn’t really warm to the film’s trailer when it debuted, I found the Intramural to be quite charming and hilarious — a lovingly made Dodgeball-esque lampooning of a genre that has become all-too-familiar.
I had a chance to chat with Intramural writer Bradley Jackson about his favorite sports movie tropes, and why Air Bud 4 sullies the realism of the Air Bud franchise. See our video interview after the jump.
