When I was a teenager I worked at Blockbuster Video.  Part of the job involved picking out movies for people based on their personalities and individual tastes. Having watched thousands of hours of film, I eventually got pretty good at picking movies based on the customer’s previous rentals.

In the mood for a classic this week? Here’s a movie for you based on your favorite doc blog.

White Coat Investor


The Godfather. A squeaky clean military man gets out of the service and comes back to the states to start a new life. Step by step he gets pulled into a new world he never anticipated – running a multimillion dollar syndicate. Just like I will watch The Godfather anytime it’s on TV, I will always read a WCI post. At the next WCI conference people will be lined up to kiss the ring.

Physician on FIRE

Joe vs the Volcano

Joe vs. the Volcano. A young man in the prime of his career is disillusioned with work and ultimately decides he’d rather throw himself into the FIRE rather than go back to his 9-5 existence.  Only after risking it all does he truly learn how to live.

Passive Income MD

The Money Pit

The Money Pit. See what happens when a couple throws every last penny into real estate. Will it bring them closer together or will it be the FInal straw?

Dr. Carrie Reynolds (Hippocratic Hustle)

Good Morning Vietnam

Good Morning, Vietnam. An energetic radio host played by the universally liked Robin Williams has the unenviable task of cheering up weary soldiers with his broadcast.

Wall Street Physician

Boiler Room. Want to understand how Wall Street profits off of investors whether they make money or not? Check out this behind the scenes look at the inner workings of a high pressure brokerage.

Miss Bonnie MD


Rocky. Based in Philadelphia, this movie chronicles the story of a small but scrappy powerhouse. With the support of his long-term partner and their young son, Rocky has a punch (biopsy) that will knock you out.

Loonie Doctor

Canadian Bacon. Americans know almost nothing about their neighbor to the north. If you enjoy the work of Canadian Loonie Doc, you’ll certainly enjoy John Candy leading a group of misfits into a secret invasion of Canada.

BC Krygowski

Trading Places

Trading Places. There’s no better way to learn about the world than to trade places with someone else. If you enjoy B.C. Krygowski’s Home Exchange adventures, you’re in for a treat. Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy take home exchange to the next level in this 80’s classic.

Rogue Dad MD

Three Kings

Three Kings. George Clooney stars in this underrated movie about wealth, relationships and the misperceptions Americans have about Muslim people. Join Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube in this alt-brown look at the Gulf War.


Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club. Based in Chicago suburbs, The Breakfast Club is a timeless coming of age classic.  Even though the Principal Vernons of the world may just see us as doctors, Doc G knows each of us is a lazy hustler, a fat hustler and a lean hustler.  Don’t you forget about him.

Crispy Doc

Ferris Bueller

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  In a world full of Cameron Fryes, Crispy Doc is Ferris Bueller.  He’s here to remind us that life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.  Although he’s gone on vacation nine times in the past year, we all think he’s a righteous dude.

Vagabond MD

Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump.  I’ve never met someone who didn’t like Forrest Gump.  I’ve also never met someone who didn’t appreciate the wise advice of Vagabond MD.  Forrest Gump was never the main protagonist in historic events, but he managed to always find himself in the middle of them.  Likewise, Vagabond MD may not have his own blog but he manages to have a guest post resume that delivers as consistently as the Forrest Gump soundtrack.

Nisha Mehta MD


The Shawshank Redemption. Trapped in a dark isolated reading room cell day after day Andy Dufresne is determined to escape imprisonment.  He eventually finds a way to live the life he wants and manages to inspire his fellow prisoners along the way.

Dr McFrugal

Catch Me

Catch Me If You Can. A clever charmer figures out how to make thousands of dollars and score dozens of free flights from airlines without having to do a thing.  Want to figure out how he does it?  You’ll have to catch him first.

The Physician Philosopher

Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day.  Groundhog Day is a surprisingly philosophical look at the meaning of life.  Each morning Bill Murray is reincarnated to relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right.  Only after living his best life can he achieve nirvana and be set free.  Watch Murray save himself in this 80’s classic and he just may save you too.



Superman.  What happens when a radiologist is exposed to too many gamma rays?  He gets super powers that let him write new blog posts faster than a speeding bullet.  Xrayvsn’s new blog feature, The Hospital, is like the Daily Planet for doc blogs.

Dads Making Cents

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.  What happens when two people with different backgrounds team up to plot ways to strike it rich?  Whether you’re interested in French Riviera con-jobs or making money in real estate, two heads are always better than one.

Get Your Popcorn Ready

I hope you enjoy these doc blogs as much as I do.  If you haven’t already read these blogs or watched these movies, you’re in for a treat.  Kick back, relax and dedicate this weekend to binge watching/reading.

  1. You have a perfect formula for writing. Humor plus great content. I will like to kiss the Godfather ring. What movie will you categorize yourself? Matrix? Neo who embraced his true nature, only then did he became very powerful. Keep being yourself.


  2. Lol. Love it and spot on matching movies with bloggers, although don’t have much superpowers. It’s what happens when you are left alone in a dark room for the majority of the day 🙂 Keep em coming!
