It made me so angry in the end when Billy went to the event and wouldn't even talk to Steve. He said something under his breath about not wanting to spend a lot of time with people like that.

Billy has NO reason to be upset with Steve. Steve has every reason to hate Billy. He discredited his high score and then took his high school using a tape, the same method he criticized Steve for!

I don't want to believe that the movie was fake. After I watched it I read saying that Billy was even a bigger dick than they showed but they edited it down. Ill read this article when I have time later

Okay, I just read that article and can now speak to it.

I wouldn't call the whole movie bogus, but they certainly left out parts, mainly a whole other contender. But in the end that contender didn't matter all that much because it came down to just Billy and Steve. And the article made a good point, it's an 80 minute movie made for entertainment, it couldnt cover all of the details and they maybe fudged some parts to make it easier to understand.

As for Billy, after reading that article I find him to be an even bigger dick. He is so cocky about everything.

In conclusion: regardless of what the article said, even though Billy beat Steve while the movie was airing, it is still one of my favorite movies.

Right. And eventually the rivalry was warranted, but not the way the movie showed

I've seen this airing on ESPN Classic late at night a couple of times over the course of the week. I don't know if you would consider that receiving any sort of props from the sports world but it definitely caught me by surprise
