Review: The Pursuit of Happyness

Not only have we Smith Sr. vying for another Oscar, now we have Smith Jr. too (though only “lower” awards). Granted, acting is pretty good in this movie, which is supposed to be uplifting. Be prepared though, mostly it’s pretty dark drama, and you’ll watch it with a knot in your stomach. Of course, in the end, you will also feel jealousy, the story being based on a certain multi-millionaire’s memoirs.
While the movie seems to run a bit long, the continuous pressure and light hearted breaks will keep the momentum going, all the way to the big *sigh* of relief during the last piece to warrant the title feel good movie.7½.
