I went and saw The Pursuit of Happyness new year's eve, and was very pleased with it. Will Smith, in my humble opinion, always does a great job, and this movie was no exception. I think the fact that the kid who played his son in the movie was actually his son added some, too. Made a lot of the emotional scenes more intense and realistic.
It was really a touching story, perhaps even more so than The Family Man, which was previously the most touching movie I had ever seen. It obsviously had a great plot to work with, a young couple with a young child falling upon hard times, dealing with relationship issues, seeking to better one's station in life, and, of course, seeking that 'happiness' which seems all too fleeting the few times it is achieved.
This movie was also surprisingly clean. I was very shocked, and in a VERY good way, about that. With the sole exception of one word (which the son saw written on a wall and asked about), I can't recall anything that should make a Christian the least bit hesitant about seeing it. A huge thumbs up there.
So, anybody else see this film yet? I'll certainly be buying (uh, well, asking Dad to buy it :D) when it comes out.
