Five Movies With Incredible Life Lessons

May 3, 2021
Movies can be pretty inspiring. They can nudge you out of your comfort zone and leave you with some incredible life lessons. At times, they can make you ponder hard on your life, and question yourself, while other times, it can make you see into the future.

As we all may know and have heard, there is an honest kid within all of us. As we grow older, we tend to get so grave that we forget how wonderful our life is. So, here, we have presented a list of some of the best and the most inspiring movies that can help you be a better person. These are some movies that you can watch with your family, kids, or friends, and you can be assured of learning something worthwhile. So, let us get started and address them one by one.

Bruce Almighty

Bruce Almighty is a hugely inspiring, interesting, and fun movie. The movie has a meaningful and powerful message. The film revolves around the life of Jim Carrey, a TV reporter. Jim constantly has terrible things happening to him. So, he complains to God for doing a terrible job. So, God appears right in front of him and showers all his power to Jim to assess if he can do a good enough job. Through this process, he learns a lesson that metamorphoses his life forever.

‘I believe that this flick, Bruce Almighty has enough and more life lessons that you need to learn. Unfortunately, a lot of times, these lessons are covered in humour, which takes the very essence away at times. This is possibly done to cater to the mainstream audience. Nonetheless, it is a great weekend film, which can be a good watch with your friends,’ comments Steven, an educator who offers assignment help Australia

The Bucket List, 2007

There are two things that I have acknowledged and accepted in my life: One, there is nothing that a bar of chocolate cannot heal, and Two, death is inevitable.

In all honesty, the latter may be a little complex a subject for adults to accept, but Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman’s, Bucket List helps you wrap your head around this thought. Both of the protagonists go on a series of adventures where they ride bikes and skydive on the Great Wall of China.

‘The movie addresses subjects, such as filial ties, loss, and love, and revolves around the life of two terminally ill men. Morgan and Jack run away from a cancer ward to tick off their bucket list comprising the many to-dos before they finally succumb to the disease. Though the movie does seem like a slightly campy address on death and life, the message it conveys is pretty heartfelt. It is indeed a great movie that you must all watch with your family. So, utilise the time you have, and watch this movie while you still have time because one day it will end for all of us,’ states Jessica, an educator who offers online ‘do my assignment’ services. 

The movie is available on Netflix. 


‘Very recently, I heard about this movie Lucy, and saw it. The movie was released in 2014, but I didn’t get to watch it until last Saturday. I came across its trailer on YouTube, and in the moment I knew, I would love this movie. The movie is filled with some of the best life lessons,’ shares Steffy, an online tutor who offers the best cybersecurity courses online

Well, we 100% agree with Steffy on this, and when you watch the movie, you will agree too. In the movie, Lucy is forced to transport a fresh batch of a drug around the country. She does so by hiding it inside her stomach. Unfortunately, an accident takes place, and the drug gets infused into the blood cells inside the body. Consequently, the impact is remarkable. This drug makes Lucy use her brain to its absolute capacity, and that’s something, given we only use about ten percent of it. With this new knowledge that she gets from her brain’s capabilities, she finds herself in a fix as she cannot do what to do with all of it. What next? We have Morgan Freeman on the screen, and the movie takes an entirely new turn. One most important life lesson that the movie teaches you is the purpose of the knowledge and information is to share and pass ahead from one generation to the next. If we do not pass on this information, it will go with us to our graves. Consequently, the generation after us will not be able to use it. For our heirs to learn some things and grow, this sharing of information is highly vital.

Overall, it is a fun and inspiring movie to watch. So, if you are looking for something interesting to watch this weekend, this can be your go-to movie.


Yes Man

‘All of us are bogged down by our duties, our life, and the endless stress, so much so that our reflex response to everything is a NO. You know what? Please take it easy. Keep yourself light, and be open to the newer opportunities in life that come your way. This is precisely the lesson from the movie Yes Man,’ shares Jenny, an educator who offers java homework help services.

Marley & Me, 2008

Marley & Me is a movie about a terrible puppy who is forced out of the pup school, and he consistently turns his home into a hurricane – what an incredible movie. This is literally one movie that I can watch again and again,’ comments Mathew, an online ap chemistry tutor.   

The movie has Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston in the key roles and is based on John Grogan’s 2005 memoir, but the film takes you through so much more. It is a story of a newlywed couple who begin their family with one crazy Labra pup and then gets to three kids. A man’s heartfelt and sincere love letter to his best friend, a fuzzy family flick, and unwavering loyalty, and a crazy life lesson, this movie is a complete package. It teaches you how great it is to live your life as the craziest version of yourself and still be loved. Another lesson? At times, we humans need to learn life lessons from the animals that we try to tame.
