Category: Entertainment

Based on a true story about a man named Christopher Gardner. Gardner has invested heavily in a device known as a "Bone Density scanner". He feels like he has made these devices. However, they do not sell as they are marginally better than the current technology at a much higher price. On top of that, one of these does not work. As Gardner tries to figure out on how to fix the faulty one and sell the others, 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.

Great
"A father with his back to the corner battles his way back to the center of the ring. Will Smith and his son, Jaden, are superlative is this confirmation of the American dream, and you root for them every step of the way. I began thinking that Will brought out the best in his son only to realise that Jaden brought out the best in Will, making this (in my humble opinion) Will's best."

Awesome movie
An emotional and touching movie based on a true story. It was both excellent and inspirational at the same time and i would really recommend watching it! I find it interesting enough for me to read the Chris Gardner's story after watching it.

Rags to Ritches
probably the best rags to riches story movie out there especially if your a fan of the markets which im sure most of you are here. Also awesome to see it was a homeless struggling african american man that was able to build up from nothing to everything so that he could take care and provide for his son. Great movie. Even greater true story.

It's a film you really want to like...
Expect to cry when you see this film for the first time. Some of the scenes are very emotional, and very sad as well. And yet this isn't a movie you leave feeling terrible- it's a movie of hope. It's a movie you really want to love.

Will Smith gives a stunning performance as Chris Gardner, a man living on the streets with his son as he tries to get hired as a stockbroker. Smith's performance is beautiful and he truly gives the performance of a lifetime. His pain looks and feels completely real. He deserves the Best Actor Oscar. He's that good.

His performance is only made twenty times better by the touching and truly amazing story. For a long time, it seems that nothing can go right for this man. It seems that the world is really against him. He loses everything- yet he still has hope. He holds on to that distant hope that drives and connects with us all. That distant hope that he feels translates to the audience in a way that we can hardly understand. We only know it's a feeling that we don't want to ever lose. We all can feel lost and out of luck at times, but this inspiring film tells us we have to keep moving and keep trying. There is hope in the distance, and though the struggle may be fierce, when we reach that hope it's worth it all.

So, yes, this is a movie you really want to like, and it is very easy to do so. It offers hope to a sometimes hopeless world. And, in the end, it is impossible not to love it.

Great Movie
This film is about a father trying to find the pursuit of happiness for him and his son. This father was determined to have a career and a well established life for them both. After his wife left him and his son , they became homeless, and with no money. They live from shelter to shelter trying to find comfort after a hard day of work and school. To make up for the money that he was not earning from his job, he decided to sell computer devices to provide for him and his child. The father worked for about 6 months as an intern without getting paid. He was also competing with other employees in getting the position that was offered. He worked very hard day by day, and he was very punctual. After all of his hard work and determination, it finally paid off. He was the one to get the job. Now, he is one of the riches men in the world.

This story takes place in San Fransico, where there is a high volume of homeless people as themselves. The competition of work is at a high demand in this city.

The main character in the story which is Will Smith, did miraculous job. As he spoke his lines, he used strong feelings which expressed his actions.
