Honey I Shrunk the Kids was my first clue to this, and that was ages ago.
Wow. To me, Disney movies have REALLY improved in the last 15 years or so. I have loved every single Pixar film (Dreamworks just hasn't figured out the right formula yet).
And Disney's sports movies of the last few years (The Rookie, Remember the Titans, Miracle, Glory Road) have been spectacular.
No accounting for taste, I guess.
