Who doesn’t like Movies? They are different, they makes us feel good and most of the time they are unrealistic, probably the best reason we like them. Movies fulfill our dreams and give us a hope for better tomorrow and story to tell and learn from.

But if you are like me and you love them no matter how realistic or unrealistic they are, then you need to read about these movies. Always be ready to enrich your life a bit, enjoy the small moments and respect the art form of the film.

If the movies are about business, money and entrepreneurship, I’m always prepared to take a free time while not working and see what is it all about. Especially if they are based on a true story, then there is no end to the excrement and breathtaking scenes that you just can’t believe that they are true.

Because these types of movies talk about struggle, life, money, journey and everything one person experience at least once in their life. We somehow all connect with the actors and understand their actions in the movie.

Since this blog is all about helping you and giving you a way to make money online and enjoy your life. I have decided to write this post and to recommend you movies that I watched and found interesting. Movies that are full of life lessons ans lessons that are necessary for any business you are running or plan to.

Without any further delay, here is the list of top Movies about Money,Business and Entrepreneurship!


The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)

Definitively my favorite one, I watched it over 10 times for sure and Will Smith was great in this role, Jaden too. It tells a story about man that is struggling to sell a product, make some money, get a job, and take care of his son at the same time. Movie is full of interesting lessons like:
never give up, to stay true to yourself and to love your family. Will showed us for sure how you need to fight for your dream and have a spirit of a true entrepreneur. I highly recommend you to watch this movie, you will enjoy it..oh it’s also based on a true story.

Wall Street (1987)

First of the two, best movie about greed, business empires and wall street. If you want to learn a lot about how the world is spinning in financial terms, then this movie is for you. A young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider who takes the youth under his wing. Amazing actors made this movie more interesting to watch,  Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen are always a “winning” combination.



The Aviator (2004)

Leonardo did better job than in Titanic, if you watched that ship sink, you need this one too. It tells a story about early years of legendary director and aviator Howard Hughes’ career, from the late 1920s to the mid-1940s. What I liked in movie the most, was that Leonardo portrayed the true spirit of an entrepreneur , a guy that is not afraid to spend all of his inherited wealth in order to achieve even more and catch his dreams. I highly recommend.



Jerry Maguire (1996)

Tom Cruise and his famous scene in the movie where he yells : Show Me The Money” is all you need to know if you’re having second doubts about this movie. It will show you what one man can do, and it proves that money is not always important, there are more important things like love, family and relationship. The story starts when a sports agent has a moral epiphany and is fired for expressing it, he decides to put his new philosophy to the test as an independent with the only athlete who stays with him. You will enjoy this one for sure.

Thank You for Smoking (2005)

This movie will show you and teach you about how the world of tobacco is functioning and power it has. But also it show the power of one man that is willing to do everything to stay with his family and do what is right. Satirical comedy follows the machinations of Big Tobacco’s chief spokesman, Nick Naylor, who spins on behalf of cigarettes while trying to remain a role model for his twelve-year-old son.  It’s not that much of an action movie but the dialogs and the story will leave you speechless.



American Gangster (2007)

One of my favorite ones, based on a true story, how one man build a drug empire by cutting the middle man. Denzel Washington played this well to the end as always. You will learn that business can be tough to run, both illegally and legally and that sometimes you need to make changes and rule in order to achieve the financial freedom. But money doesn’t always bring a prosperity, you need to watch this one.



Up In The Air (2009)

The story follows a guy that has a strangest job in the world, he’s payed to fire people instead of his boss. And he is 99% of the time in the air traveling to the different branches of his company all over the world. You will learn how sometimes a machine can’t replace the human contact and how it is important to stay loyal to your work. I highly recommend you this one, you will love your business and job after you watch this lonely guy fly non stop. Clooney did an amazing job and played his role welly well.
