Great Movies About Writers

Entertainment Weekly ran a feature today showing 14 of their favorite films about writers, in honor of the WGA strike ending. It's a pretty good sampling we think, and have decided to go one step further and dredge up some clips. We were able to find 12 of the 14 films listed, so we've included two bonuses: a clip from Curtis Hanson's Wonder Boys, and a touching video of aspiring poet Vada Sultenfuss reciting a sad poem in the groundbreaking 1991 film My Girl. (We tried to find the ice cream poem, but alas were foiled.) What films did they miss?
