Don't get it for "the scene"

"If you're looking for Amy Jo Johnson topless, don't bother. It's distant and you can't see squat. Other than that downer, it's a moderately entertaining film about someone coming to a crossroads in his/her life and figuring out which way to take themselves. Something most of us can relate to, as it happens, which is why it works."
Mediocre writing & direction

"I like romantic comedies in general, even some that I recognize as being formulaic, but I didn't like this movie. The weaknesses were immediately apparent--awkward dialogue, lack of visual style--but I hoped the movie would overcome its faults. It didn't. Unlike, for example, Wedding for Bella, which had some similar shortcomings and obvious outcomes, this movie never made me care about the lead characters--they were two-dimensional sketches rather than fleshed-out characters. I liked Amy Jo Johnson, although being a 30-year-old playing "the teenager" suggests a reason for her undistinguished career, and I liked Liz Vassey who was also relaxed in her character rather than awkwardly acting a part. Otherwise, nothing to see here. Move along."
A SUPERB OLD FASHION ROMANTIC COMEDY
Namik Baris IDIL | Ankara, TURKEY | 05/07/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
""Pursuit of Happiness" is a superb old fashion romantic comedy film. Actors are really good, especially I liked Annabeth Gish very much. She is a talented, beautiful and smart actress. It seems to be a simple romantic movie but it is much more than that. The perfect atmosphere of the movie can make you feel a lot of different emotions. It shows me a lot of truth that I was not aware of. It shows that the job, money, carrer and things like that are not really important. The important thing is to aware of the day, love the day, seize the day and just be happy because there are somebody around you that loves you whatever you are or you will become. If you want to watch a good film, feel wondeful things and see good acting, I suggest this film strongly."
Outstanding, authentic, and heartwarming

"Excellent acting and good story. I had never heard of this movie until I picked up a discounted copy. But this movie is a blessing, telling the tale of man muddling through life and finally realizing that his true love is by his side all along. Classy romance of the highest caliber, and a story that makes you think and reflect. A definite two thumbs up. An undiscovered gem."
