Suuret toiveet (Great Expectations) on David Leanin ohjaama brittiläinen draamaelokuva vuodelta 1946. Se perustuu Charles Dickensin romaaniin, joka on suomennettu nimillä Suuria odotuksia (1934) ja Loistava tulevaisuus (1960). Romaanin pohjalta elokuvan käsikirjoituksen laativat ohjaaja David Lean, tuottaja Ronald Neame sekä Cecil McGivern ja Kay Walsh. Pääosia näyttelevät John Mills, Valerie Hobson, Bernard Miles, Francis L. Sullivan ja Jean Simmons.
Klassikon asemaan nousseessa Dickensin tarinassa 1800-luvun englantilainen orpopoika saa itselleen salaperäisen tukijan ja etenee vauraaksi herrasmieheksi. Tarina on filmattu tätä ennen 1917 ja 1934 sekä puolen tusinaa kertaa myöhemmin, mutta tätä vuoden 1946 David Leanin elokuvasovitusta pidetään yhä yleisesti parhaana, jopa parhaana kaikista Dickensin tekstien elokuvasovituksista.(wiki)
