This film evoked great emotion from me. I spent over 50% of my viewing time with a lump in my throat or tears in my eyes. The story of Chris, and his struggles to provide a better life for his son, was an incredible journey of determination to overcome numerous obstacles to obtain the life he knew he was ultimately capable of instead of wallowing in "just getting by". I was thrilled with the triumphant conclusion. This film encouraged me to continue in my personal journey to follow my dreams. After viewing this film, I desired to contact Chris to thank him for sharing his story.

I was very impressed with the performance by Will Smith. He had a great blend of comedic moments and dramatic scenes. Powerful rags to riches story.

Will Smith and his son do an excellent job of portraying the struggle to move beyond poverty not simply towards wealth, but happiness. In addition to this, self initiative, vision and committment are clearly characteristics which enabled this family to make a new life for themselves.
