The Pursuit of Happyness 2006


In the moving drama The Pursuit of Happyness, Chris Gardner (Will Smith) is a marginally employed salesman and a single father, struggling with the mother (Thandie Newton) of his five-year-old son (Jaden Smith). When they are evicted from their apartment, Gardner finds himself alone with his son in San Francisco and no place to go. Even when Gardner lands an intern position at a prestigious stock brokerage firm, it pays no money. Forced to live in shelters, enduring many hardships as he goes through their program, Chris refuses to let this dampen his spirits as he pursues his dream of security for himself and his son.

The Pursuit of Happyness Movie Review by Zara (12/19/2008)

It takes a long while before there is any happy in this flick. And I can understand why.

Going into the holidays with plenty of presents under my "ghetto" Xmas tree (it's a piece of wrapping paper cut into the shape of a tree and taped to the wall) and all of my bills paid, including rent that is a bloated and unfair...

The Pursuit of Happyness Movie Review by Chris (2/10/2008)

I have been interested in seeing this movie since its theatrical release, though I never got the chance to see it in theatres, I got it off a friend on DVD. First off, Will Smith gave the greatest performance of his career in this film, right along side his son Jaden Smith. While the film deals with the harsh and...

The Pursuit of Happyness Movie Review by Movie Addict (10/21/2007)

I doubt if anyone could possibly imagine the heartbreak and struggle the Chris Gardner went though unless you have been there yourself. The fact that is was based on the story of a real person made it all...

The Pursuit of Happyness Movie Review by Max (7/2/2007)

Chris Gardner holds one of the best and most memorable rags to riches stories of all time. In 1981, he was evicted from his apartment in downtown San Francisco after his wife left him so he and his son were forced to live without a home. Through is own brilliance and motivation from his young son, Chris worked to become...
