Movie synopsis
Will Smith is a father struggling to take care of his young son in this touching tale based on a true story. In San Francisco circa 1981, Chris Gardner's (Smith) luck has run out. A bad business investment, a bevy of parking tickets, and back taxes in addition to rent, childcare, and groceries keep him constantly scrambling for cash. Chris thinks his luck is changing when he is accepted into a highly competitive internship program at a brokerage firm. But the internship is unpaid and soon, despite his best efforts, Chris and his five-year old son, Christopher (Jaden Christopher Syre Smith--Will Smith's real life son), find themselves homeless. Chris might spend his days training to invest and make millions, but he and Christopher spend their nights in shelters and public transportation stations.Gardner's story is a testament not only to the love between a father and son, but also to the strength of the human spirit. Will Smith turns in a fine, nuanced performance as a man determined to protect his son and make a life for himself and his family. Jaden Smith is an adorable scene-stealer as young Christopher. The real-life father and son pairing translates well onto the big screen; the two have terrific natural chemistry. Their affection for each other is apparent, even as they weather the tough times. This is Italian director Gabriele Muccino's (THE LAST KISS, REMEMBER ME MY LOVE) first film in the English language. Thandie Newton also stars as Christopher's overworked and defeated mother in this tearjerker which was inspired by a segment on the television news program 20/20. Gardner also wrote a book of the same name that was released in 2006.

Editorial reviews

"[Smith gives] a beautiful and understated performance, one that hums with a richer, quieter music than Smith has mustered before....[A] shrewdly touching movie..." -- Grade: B+
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (12/15/2006)

"Both performances are certainly likable in the extreme..."
New York Times - Manohla Dargis (12/15/2006)

3 stars out of 4 -- "The role needs gravity, smarts, charm, humor and a soul that's not synthetic. Smith brings it.He's the real deal."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (12/28/2006)

"Will Smith is an extremely charming performer....Smith is terrific as usual..."
Box Office - Mark Keizer (02/01/2007)

"[T]he film is a fully fledged message movie....Not since KRAMER VS. KRAMER has single fatherhood been so lovingly portrayed."
Sight and Sound - Kate Stables (03/01/2007)

3 stars out of 5 -- "[The character's] true-life story -- enduring homelessness with hi young son while striving to become a stockbroker -- is genuinely heartening."
Total Film - Mike Carhart-Harris (07/01/2007)

Review For: The Pursuit of Happyness (DVD, 2007, Widescreen)

Will Smith is excellent in this fight for success film based on a true story of a San Francisco man who becomes a stockbroker, but not before he has to fight endlessly against losing his apartment and becoming homeless, thieves, rotten luck and a trying divorce to get his opportunity to play in the big leagues of money management. He does it for his child played by Will's real life son, Jaden. It was inspiring to see the determination, cleverness and love that Will displayed so honestly. It made me want to see "Six Degrees of Separation" again that first showed what dimension he has as an actor. As written, he may be a little too good to be 100% true, but it doesn't stop you from recognizing the truth about how tough life can be sometimes and appreciating that it is possible to overcome the overwhelming problems we all face at times.
