Red face Name Your Favorite Inspirational Movies

We have all watched movies that have inspired us in some way. Some movies teach us valuable lessons we often forget. Others motivate us to do things we thought we could not do. Some we often rewatch to inspire us when we're down. Name some of your favorite inspirational movies. No spoilers please.

I'll start..

Groundhog Day - teaches us that by practicing each day you can perfect whatever you set out to do

La Bamba taught us a guitar can bring so much fortune to one's life.








And a plane crash could also take it all away.

Rudy. The message that no matter how disadvantaged you are... your heart is enough to take you far if you work hard and never give up.

It inspired me to cash out as soon as you win a single hand against a pro like Johnny Chan and act like you took his entire stack and feel baller about it.

getting a 5 in AP calculus is pretty easy if you are taking the A part of the calculus exam only

i took both and got a 5 on the A and a 4 on the B section

i might as well lived in the slums cause i spent 30 minutes a day studying at most
