    Saving Mr. Banks 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Dec, 2014

I also found the ending just a little contrived. That having been said, it is certainly a fun movie and quite enjoyable. I have heard complaints about its length, but I really didn't have a problem with that at all (since when is two hours and ten minutes considered a long movie?).
