Top 10 Business Movies


MSNBC.com has compiled a list of the top 10 business movies.

Which one of their top choices is your favorite?
"The Magnificent Ambersons"

"It's a Wonderful Life"

"The Solid Gold Cadillac"

"Desk Set"

"The Apartment"

"How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying"

"The Godfather, Parts I and II"

"Working Girl"

"Glengarry Glen Ross"

"Office Space"

--Ooooh, that's a toughy for me. The acting in "Glengarry Glen Ross" is simply superb. "Working Girl" is a great cheer-for-the-underdog movie. "Office Space" wins high marks with me for humor and accuracy. And what's there to say about "The Godfather" that hasn't already been said. And as for "It's a Wonderful Life," I think I'm the only one on the planet that doesn't really care for that movie. I think I'm going to have to go with "Working Girl."

You Said

YOU don't like It's a Wonderful Life???? No egg nog for you!!! :-p

Glengarry Glen Ross is an interesting movie to watch, because it is so dialogue driven. Though I haven't ever seen the play, the movie felt very much like a play.

It;s a Wonderful Life is great. Except the colorized version, that gives me a headache.

The Godfather is the best. Too bad I can't run my family business that way.

Says: axion at August 19, 2004 09:47 AM

I'll have to go for Office Space. As for It's a Wonderful Life? That movie blows.

Says: mike at August 19, 2004 11:41 AM

I'd also add "Clockwatchers" to that list, and possibly "Trading Places."

Says: Kevin at August 19, 2004 12:19 PM

How can you guys not like It's a Wonderful Life? It was replayed to much around the holidays in years past, but that is only because it is a fantastic movie!

Says: t at August 19, 2004 02:06 PM

HOW IN THE HELL DO YOU NOT PUT "WALL STREET" ON THAT LIST??? "Lunch is for wimps."

Says: Jeff B. at August 19, 2004 02:35 PM

You know, Jeff...I was thinking the same thing today.

Says: Lawren at August 19, 2004 03:22 PM

That's because we're both freakin geniuses. And hot, too.

Says: Jeff B. at August 19, 2004 05:13 PM

Trading Places. Hilarious.

Says: A at August 19, 2004 07:16 PM

Desk Set has a special place in my heart.

Says: Lynne at August 19, 2004 08:49 PM

Wall Street definitely needs to be on the list

Says: Uptown Girl at August 19, 2004 09:25 PM

"Office Space"... hands down! And, you're not alone, I hated "It's A Wonderful Life" too.

Says: Jason at August 19, 2004 09:28 PM

It's A Wonderful Life would have been a great movie if Harold the Angel had arrived 5 minutes later.

That level of wasted film wasn't equalled until Forrest Gump.

Yeesh

Says: mike at August 19, 2004 10:41 PM

So right, Jeff. So right. :)

Says: Lawren at August 19, 2004 10:41 PM

Office Space. It is sadly depicts the world too accurately! I've worked in places like that and had bosses like that. No red Swingline stapler though!

Says: Brian D. at August 20, 2004 12:42 AM

Office Space and The Godfather!!! YAY!

Says: Kelly P. at August 20, 2004 08:00 AM

I've got to agree on the "Wall Street" commentary. Otherwise, Glengarry & Godfather, hands down. Office Space was funny, but just not the same caliber.
