    I can’t be live that none of the Star Wars movies made it onto the list! This is outrageous! Its unfair!

  6. I cannot get behind a recommendation for Forrest Gump. The magical disabled person trope was a bad idea in 1994 and it has not aged well.

    Since there are zero documentaries on that list, I’ll recommend the awesome “Won’t You By My Neighbor” doc of Fred Rogers. Skip the biopic and watch the documentary.

  7. How about The Last Starfighter and Iron Eagle? Both are stories about youth rising above expectations.

  8. Mr.Smith Goes to Washington

  9. Duck Soup and Mr Holland’s Opus? Where’s The Sandlot??

  10. The Sandlot!

    • Tom Sawyer/Huckleberry Finn, Mr. Scoutmaster (one of my classmates was the SPL in this one), maybe a touch of Abbott & Costello…
