I just watched Caddyshack for the first time and realized that it has the same basic plot in regards to the underdog hero as Hot Dog: The Movie, an excellent sport-oriented film in its own right. He is introduced with no prospects of getting out of a rut except his talent, which in the end gains him the notice of someone he wants to be noticed by. He sleeps with a nice girl, then sleeps with the bad girl, but things turn out alright with him and the nicer girl again. Then, in an illegal battle for high financial stakes, he BARELY takes the prize from his nemesis in a spectacular final scene. Just thought I'd mention it...
