So now I'm watching PITCH PERFECT, about teams of competitive a-capella singers in college.
This makes me think of the STEP UP movies, where synchronized dancers would compete,
and of course the BRING IT ON movies with the cheerleading competitions.
Now I'm not saying that those competitions are actually fictional, but the popular movie format certainly does bring a heightened reality to such ideas.
Even DODGEBALL and BLADES OF GLORY qualify in this category... ....

What other movies have groups/teams competing at strange cool new group activities?
Has there been a movie about computer programming competitions? or robot-building competitions like MIT's 6.270 ?
