Review: The Pursuit of Happyness


I really enjoy Will Smith movies and he has had a string of good movies, but this movie is completely about the character and how he conveys it. I have to say that you really get into this movie, and especially for me I have a special spot for San Francisco. This man is doing all that he can to keep his family afloat, and things just aren’t working out. He keeps his head and trys to do the best that he can for his son. This is a true life story of Chris Gardner, and the best part of the whole movie is watching Will Smith’s son in his first debut movie. I have to say that the kid is amazing, you really warm up to him and love the adorable guy. This is one of Will Smith’s best you see the side of him we don’t usually see. There is a lot I want to say, but I don’t want to ruin the moviefor anyone. A great story with a lot of heart.

    I’ll be keeping this movie on mind! I was just talking to my husband about Will Smith and his son today, and wondering if they’ll be doing a movie that they both play in. It’s strange, you like answer many of my questions without even knowing that!

  4. I want to suggest this movie to our instructor just so that he can show the dimwits that we have what it takes to work in this world. I mean he went through alot of hardships and he had many doors closed in his face yet he kept on going and going, working menial jobs to others but he considered them as strong jobs I guess I should take him my copy of the DVD.

  5. Nora: looool! Its just a great movie, and Will’s kid is priceless! He was the star!

    Jacqui: I agree with you 100%! People complain when they haven’t even come close to the hardships of this man and they really shouldn’t be complain! People should watch this movie, it gets the message across!

    OMG! What a coincidence! I was just about to do some paper work when I decided to check your blog and TA DA!! Smith’s movie!! I just got back from watching it. Yeah it’s really good!! Makes you cry and feel for the guy and the KID OH THE KID I JUST WANNA squeeze him to pieces!!! lol It’s just sad how humble people are when they’re in need. They become true, honest and filled with faith and even close to God, but as soon as they fulfill their greed, they think they’re god themselves. That’s the worth of people working from scratch… I guess living in kuwait makes a difference.

  7. so the kid in the movie is actually Will’s kid, interesting i didn’t know that

  8. wow this movie is amazing, i really recommend it to everyone out there..

    the amazing thing about it is that hes a billionaire now but a while ago he lived on the street. its soo hard to belive..

  9. Missy: hehehe! Yeah its a good movie and the kid is priceless! You can’t help but feel for the guy in the movie!

    Laialy: yup!

    Amo0ora: yeah, there are a lot of cases like that in the states, and he still is humble thats the crazy part! I love San Francisco!

  10. Missy-TheOriginal

    Lexicon: really, I thought what was good about the kid was because he was so natural! How could he ruin the movie?1?!?!?! I thought he was great!
