When I first heard about this movie, I wasn’t able to find it because I was searching for The Pursuit of Happiness, when they spelled it funky in this movie and book. They explain why inside the movie. The story is loosely modeled after the life story of Chris Gardner, who appears to have a very rough beginning and through will and perseverance, they tries to overcome every little obstacle. I found the movie touching, but it found it a bit too harsh and a bit too lucky.
