The One Thing You Have To Watch On TV Tonight - The Pursuit of Happyness


Grab the microwave popcorn on your way home from work tonight, because The Pursuit of Happyness is on at 9pm on TV3. No that's not a typo, 'happiness' is spelled incorrectly in the title of the film, and if you watch it you'll find out why. This movie is a biographical drama about a guy called Chris Gardner, played by Will Smith, a struggling salesman with a young son who frequently lives on the streets. It's a really heartwarming film, and Jaden Smith plays the son, so you can see him actually behaving like an actual child before he started spouting quotes about theoretic phsyics and mindfullness to the New York Times. Watching this is a solid alternative to heading out tonight, so don't fret if you've been left shattered by your week at work, just flake out on the couch; you've got two whole days of weekend ahead of you..
