You missed Glengarry Glen Ross and Jerry Maguire.

How could you?

Well, you are half right. I did miss Jerry Maguire but not Glengary Glen Ross. That movie is a complete downer. It's depressing.

As for Jerry Maguire, it didn't make much of an impression on me. It felt too much like some Disney feel-good pap. I should watch it a second time and see if it's worthy of my list.

Jerry Maguire!!!

Interesting list including a few I haven't seen.

Re Kaleil Tuzman and Tom Herman, I don't think those guys are doing anything big these days. They both had a few more failures after govworks. Their latest site appears to be long dead.

How about, The Pursuit of Happyness

To me The Pursuit of Happyness was more about a guy desperately trying to win an internship than about anything entrepreneurial. It was also extremely painful to watch.

Here's another one over-looked.

Barbarians at the Gate. It's about takeovers as well.

The Hudsucker Proxy!

How could you miss a film like The Aviator?

"For Pete's Sake" (1974) with Barbara Striesand has Jewess Barbara indebted to mafia loansharks for the investment in Pork Bellies.

Hey, it is lots more convoluted than I can describe here!

Talk about your Entreprenurial start-up!
Plus, lots of humor...

You forgot Office Space.

If you're not up to 10 yet, why did you remove Boiler Room instead of just adding to the list?

Maybe you should learn what a word means before you use it in an online posting. Tucker was an entrepreneur, the rest, opportunists and assholes. Sad, really, that you admire that type.

Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting new organizations, particularly new businesses generally in response to identified opportunities. Entrepreneurship is often a difficult undertaking, as a vast majority of new businesses fail. (Wikipedia)

Also these are nice business movie;
It’s a Wonderful Life
The Hudsucker Proxy

Boiler Room is a piece of shit.

Mad Men

Best tv series about business ever.

Citizen Kane

Possibly the best entrepreneurial film aver made.

Close second - The Producers (the original).

The Aviator has to be there and what about Bugsy?

How could you forget "Risky Business"? ;-)

The Hudsucker Proxy?

I need to add The Social Network to my Top Ten Entrepreneurial Movies List.

I need to find some time to add The Social Network and Middle Men to the list.

don king ..only in america
catch me if you can
mr untouchable the nicky barnes story
the godfather 1 and 2
the pirates of silicon valley
rogue trader
lord or war....wow..i have only just realised my favorite entrepreneur films are mostly criminally orientated...but they teach important lessons.
