Favorite business movie?

With Oliver Stone's sequel to "Wall Street" opening tomorrow, Forbes writer Dorothy Pomerantz has been assembling a list of the best films about business. Some selections:

--"The Godfather"
--"Trading Places"
-- "9 to 5"
--"Working Girl"
--"Citizen Kane"
--"Save the Tiger"
--"How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying"
--"Glengarry Glen Ross"
--"Pretty Woman"

Any others? As for Stone's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," the WSJ's Joe Morgenstern likes Michael Douglas as the dastardly Gordon Gekko, but he's not wild about the script. The NYT's A.O. Scott says the movie "has an insomniac restlessness that is by turns thrilling and enervating."
