Male Mentors in movies

I'm only recently discovering the powerful affect a mentor can have on a kid when the father is absent, for whatever reason.

Here's my ranking of best movies in which a man takes on a pivotal role in the life of a kid (or kids) not his own:

10. Stand and Deliver;
9. Karate Kid;
8. The Cowboys;
7. Finding Neverland;
6. Dead Poet's Society;
5. Secondhand Lions;
4. Antwone Fisher;
3. Simon Birch;
2. About a Boy;
1. Up

Finding Forrester and Searching for Bobby Fisher also come to mind.
