THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS II
THIS TIME CRITICS CAN RELATE
Rex Ropner is a heavy-footed marginally employed journalist with a customary sneering wit. Struggling to make ends meet, Ropner leaves his wife and son to pursue a better life for himself. When Gardner lands an internship at a prestigious newspaper, he endures many hardships, including covering stories where there is no complementary buffet and losing his DSL service when gambling losses and an unscrupulous online pornography provider leave him unable to pay his cable bill. Through it all, Ropner never gives up his dream, and with a little help from an uncle with a large advertising budget Ropner lands the position of movie critic.
This film captures the essence of the great American film critic.

**Note from Pile: In my opinion, the reviews of the Pursuit of Happyness tell us more about the reviewer than the movie. Go see it.
