Everyone might notice that the spelling of "happyness" in the title of this movie is wrong and I wondered why. After watching this film, you’ll understand and ask no more question. It wouldn’t bother me anymore. In fact, no matter how you spell the word, as long as the meaning is clear, you’ll get the message across.
This movie is inspired by a true story of Chris Gardner a millionaire who once had no money and no home and had to take care of his beloved 5 years old son. In the toughest moment of his life, he still struggle for a better change.
The film is truly inspirational. Will Smith did a marvelous job portraying a father who cares most for his son (both in real life and in the movie.) It’s no doubt why he got a nomination for Best Actor in the Leading Role at the 79th Annual Academy Awards. Even though the movie has a typical predictable Hollywood-style script with some dramatic and comedic moments mixing together, the movie will remain in someone’s heart with a reflection of the phrase "Never Give Up." Like an old saying goes: where there is a will, there is a way. There has always been a way for everyone to seek his own "happyness."
4 Stars out of 5 – recommend to everyone, especially those who lose their faith in life and work. Rekindle your spirit with this film.
