Evaluation on The Pursuit of Happiness

Thomas Jefferson mentions in the Declaration of Independence "the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” I was determined to know what Thomas Jefferson really meant by the pursuit of happiness. The movie "The Pursuit of Happiness," reveals the answers to this question through a touching story of how far one man goes to provide for his family.

The only problem is that the internship has no salary, so he has to sell some of his medical scanners in order for his son and him to survive.

I can not say, but one thing is for sure, I recommend this movie, it is definitely worth renting. It will definitely hit you with heartwarming emotions. Will Smith was the producer of this movie, which was very surprising to me since he has produced many of his own movies. The thing that I found interesting was the way he used his own son in the story. I think that it worked greatly to this story, because they were so natural together. There is one seen where Chris makes up an imaginary game with his son to hide the reality of sleeping in a subway bathroom. This particular part was an excellent example of the acting talents of Will Smith, because it truly brought a tear to my eye. Since the first time I watched Will Smith on the TV show "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," I instantly became a fan. His acting talents are outstanding, always resulting in a great film. I have watched almost all of Will Smith's movies and have never been disappointed. Will Smith is a great actor and in this movie, his acting turns a mediocre story into a masterpiece.

Although this movie lacks the action, special effects, and non stop comedy that will keep you laughing
