Based on a true story about a man named Christopher Gardner, who has invested heavily in a device known as a "Bone Density scanner". However, the devices do not sell as they are just marginally better than the current technology at a much higher price. As Gardner tries to figure out how to sell them, his wife leaves him, he loses his house, his bank account, and credit cards. Forced to live out in the streets with his son, Gardner is now desperate to find a steady job; he takes on a job as a stockbroker, but before he can receive pay, he needs to go through 6 months of training, and to sell his devices.

The movie has a mix between drama and humor; the movie describes the problems that a man has when the life becomes him so hard that he thinks that he canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t continue
The pursuit of happiness is about a salesman of scanners (will smith) he had a family (wife and a son) he and his wife argue much because she thinks that the husbandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s job is not enough for them to live well, one day his wife leaves home, and he remains in charge of his son, but the job is harder day so he and his son have go through many problems and difficulties until he gets a better job and their life changes.
I like the movie because it is plot, is very entertaining in this movie he shows that people can overcome any kind of problems and Will Smith.
One of the best movies all year. Also one of the best performances by Will Smith, worthy of an Oscar.
The Pursuit of Happyness is based on the life of Christopher Gardner. It shows how he struggled in his early life, hitting rock bottom with no place to stay, no money for food, and a little boy to take care of. Almost as a last ditch effort he applies for a internship for 6 months with no pay, just for a 1 in 20 chance to land the job that could save him and his family.
