    @anonymous: Hello BaseballHittingTips, I agree! I think Field of Dreams and Stand By Me (of the movies you mentioned) are my favorite motivational movies. There are so many favorites and this page helps us to put them together on one page so we can collect them all. ;-)

    I love the movies you've listed here. I didn't vote on the poll because I'm both an avid reader AND a film buff :-). Uplifting lens, it made me smile - thanks!

    Top Motivational Movies

    This list of inspirational movies includes a variety of different story lines. Hope you enjoy them.

    1. PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS- A rages to riches story about a man who goes for his dreams and wont let his circumstances get in the way

    2. REMEMBER THE TITANS- during the 70s the black and white school is closed and they are sent to an integrated school. Through all the racial tension a black coach is chosen to head the newly segregated football team

    3. FOREST GUMP- The story of a man with a low IQ who rose above his challenges, and proved that determination, courage, and love are more important than intellectual ability

    4. THE COLOR PURPLE-Its based on the life and trials and tribulations of an African American woman in the early 1900's

    5. RUDY: About a huge football fan who always wanted to play for the Notre Dame Football team. He is told he is too small for the game but he perseveres on
