[Highly rated reviewer]So this is the American dream. A whole nation has been told to believe this twaddle. For him the pursuit of happiness was the pursuit of money. Working for 6 months for no money as he drags his son from public toilet to homeless shelters for months on end. Living with alcoholics, drug users and down and outs. NO money for food does it ever end. At any point in the movie he could have got a job and feed and housed his under five but no !!! Endless running and running and for the happy ending he gets his pot of gold. Should have been called ' THE PURSUIT OF GREED'
