This movie is about Chris Gardner (Will Smith). In the early 1980s, in San Francisco, Chris invests his savings in bone-density scanners, thus financially breaking the family, and soon bringing troubles to the relationship with his wife who eventually leaves him. Without any money and without his wife's help, and only with a total commitment to his son Christopher (Jaden Smith), Chris makes a deci... read more

One of the best films of 2007, and with high expectation in the Oscars one year ago, The Pursuit of Happyness is a film that essentially exalts the model: America - Land of Opportunities, but is a great film nevertheless, with remarkable acting by real life father and son Will and Jayden Smith.

Based on the true story of Chris Gardner, who in the early 1980's, faced many difficultie... read more

This movie was amazing. Like Flash said, it is indeed a Rocky movie. Will plays the part amazingly well, as does his son (amazing for his first acting time!)

This movie actually suprised me because although it has the word "Happyness" in the title, it really isn't that happy. It is actually very sad most of the time. You will feel bad for the main actors. But fortunately, Will keeps... read more

" This was an average Sunday afternoon viewing, though stormier than usual. As for the movie, it's okay, but way too saccharine."

"12.10. Netflix, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Gabriele Muccino Mitä paremmin pystyy sietämään elokuvan epäilyttävän kokoomuslaisen pohjavireen, sitä nautittavampi se on. Lähdin tähän aika skeptisellä asenteella, mutta elokuva voittikin minut puolelleen. Will Smith poikineen vetää yllättävän sympaattiset roolit ja optimismi on heikkouteni. Siirappi mielestäni pääosin kiitettävästi vältetty. Jonkin verran kurjuudessa vellomista ja luuskannereiden perässä juoksemista olisi täs"

"First viewing - Aug. 23rd This wasn't anything mind-blowing or life-altering, but I enjoyed it anyway. Sure, it's obvious where it's headed, but in this case the journey to get there makes it all worthwhile. Will Smith owns the role, and having his real-life son play his fictional son ensures they'll have good chemistry & believable interactions. I might even watch it again at some point, though I doubt I'll need to. Consider this a higher 7."
