so i went to see the Pursuit of Happyness (there is a reason that happiness is spelt wrong in the movie, i was confused as to why it was misspelt in the first place)
i thought it was great. Will Smith was great as was his son (who plays his son in the movie)
i liked it shed a little tear.

The movie is a true story of a man named Christopher Gardner who overcame insurmountable odds in life and became a very successful broker in Wall Street. It is an inspirational movie without failing to neglect the soft spot of the poor in the man. Gardner shows his goodwill and determination by helping the needed people of South Africa. According to his Biography. I quote:
"Which is why, on this October day, Gardner keeps working those phones. It's why he's already begun writing his next book. It's why he's in talks with several networks about doing a primetime show, and why, earlier this year, he sold a minority stake in Gardner Rich to a major hedge fund. But most of all, it's why he's about to close a second round of financing -- reportedly to launch a private-equity fund focused solely on investments in South Africa."
