The Pursuit of Happyness

A Movie ReelThe Pursuit of Happyness: 8.5 out of 10.

I must confess, I'm not a big Will Smith fan. I liked him in Six Degrees of Separation and thought he was pretty good in Ali, but that's about it. In The Pursuit of Happyness, however, he's fantastic.

The entire film is damn good. It's a great story that's well paced, never boring and includes a great Will Smith performance that makes you forget he was ever the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I almost gave this one a nine.

I rented Pursuit of Happyness this weekend as well and I'd give it a 7.5.

A good movie but it I felt empty at the end.. I would have liked a little more movie post-success.

Hey Fred, I have a great idea. Let's be the Siskel and Ebert of the local blog scene.

I liked the ending. That's a great scene where dude gets the good news and then there's the big hug with his son and the update written on the screen.

This movie is the Rudy of the stock exchange!

I just rented this movie and watched on the weekend as well. I loved it. Yes, like Fred, it would have been nice to see a little of the what-happened-later... But still.. It made me realize how good we have it even when we think we don't.
