Pursuit of Happyness
Went and saw this movie this weekend and well didn't really like it. I have a hard time offering kudos and feeling inspired by something that I think everybody would do. Do you want a cookie for facing adversity and getting off the street with your child? Granted he took it further then most people in life by starting his own brokerage firm etc. but then he had more natrual ability then most. (Most people can't sit down and solve a rubic's cube the first time that they pick it up.) So I tried to gleam something from it that would vindicate spending $9 to see this and this is what I learned....Don't spend your life savings starting a business selling bone density machines. This movie was nothing more then a lame attempt at feel good targeted now into the market because of the slowing market. If you are looking for a few hours of entertainment I would recommend buying a dime bag of weed or bottle of smirnoff instead of seeing this movie. If you are looking for motivation watch Rudy.. If you are looking to change your station in life and can't solve a rubics cube I would look into going back to school.
