The true story of Christopher Gardner, who invests heavily in a device known as a 'Bone Density Scanner', only to find himself struggle to sell the product as it's just marginally better than the current technology, and much more expensive. His wife leaves him, he loses his house, bank account and credit cards and, now forced to live out in the streets with his young son, he's desperate to find a steady job. He takes on a job as a stockbroker but, before he can receive pay, he needs to go through 6 months of training, and must sell his devices.
" It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that?"
Touching, inspiring & emotionally uplifting but also overly sentimental at times, The Pursuit of Happyness is a tenderly crafted, expertly narrated & brilliantly performed biographical drama that's brought to life with utmost care & sincerity, and is also notable for featuring one of Will Smith's most memorable performances to date.
The Pursuit of Happyness tells the story of Chris Gardner, a struggling salesman who loses his wife, his house, his bank accounts & is forced to live out in the streets with his son when the device he invested his entire life savings into does not produce the results he was hoping for. Desperate for a steady job, he takes an unpaid internship to compete for the paid position of a stockbroker.
I have lost count of how many times I have seen this film. But, no matter how many times I see it, the scene when Will Smith claps his hands in uncontrollable happiness always brings tears. Tears of happiness. This film makes me happy in a heavy sort of way and gives me ultimate satisfaction. But, it can always be only a pursuit? Can't we ever actually have it ? This is an eternal question.
Gabriele Muccino's emotional drama the pursuit of happiness was a film made before will smith and jaden smiths careers started going down hill the story is about a poor family left by there mum/wife who are low on there rent and there only way to afford a life is to sell there scanners and for Chris gardener to get a job as a stoke broker and this film is brilliant I want to get my flaws out of the way now so I can just start praising it, the film has too much melodrama but it works there's just to much of it and I couldn't watch this film over and over again I will watch it a bit more…
we watched this in sociology and i lowkey cried
What a hokey, schmaltzy, smiley, happy, gooey, sappy, nice, dumb, simple movie this was.
This made me feel nice.
Smith is genuinely really good here. Some moments are baffling, and kinda dumb, but Smith sells them all like a bone density scanner.
TBH, it's kind of boring and overrated. But you gotta admit, it shows a true story with good courage and confidence, tackling the subject in a nice way.
Good stuff. Still waiting on the Pursuit of Rappyness from the Fresh Prince.
Remember when people were like, "oh hey did you know that's really Will Smith's son?" and now it's like common knowledge. The Earth revolves around the sun, the moon landing was faked, and Will Smith has an eccentric son named Jaden. Everyone knows these things. I tend to ramble when I log movies this late. I like this movie a lot.
"Hey. Don't ever let somebody tell you... You can't do something. Not even me. All right? You got a dream... You gotta protect it. People can't do somethin' themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want somethin', go get it. Period."
What an inspirational movie this was and I definitely can relate on the struggles of every day life that I've been through just like millions of others have too. Definitely watch this if you have not seen it.
One of the best I have ever watched.
Watched it in the middle of class, half paying attention. Still one of the saddest and most emotional movies of all time. Will Smith's best roles
Always breaks my heart.
