The Longest Yard might be a comedy we all know and love, but it underscores issues of cheating and corruption that can happen in real-life athletics. With Icarus, things are taken to a whole new level when viewers are exposed to one of the biggest doping scandals ever to happen in sports.

If you love Supersize Me, watch Food, Inc.

Seeing what certain foods do to our bodies is unsettling — Supersize Me proves it. Food, Inc. takes this a step further by documenting the farms that grow our food and the restaurants and stores that sell it (with a few disturbing shots of animal processing plants along the way). It might sound unappealing, but if all aspects of the U.S. food chain fascinate you, watch Food, Inc. the next time you're hungry for entertainment.

If you love A Time to Kill, watch 13th.

A Time to Kill tells the story of a black father on trial in racially tense Mississippi, while 13th explores the history of racial inequalities in the U.S. The award-winning documentary pays special attention to prisons and the number of African Americans being held within them.

If you love The Queen, watch The Royal House of Windsor.
