Since this movie is categorized as a PG movie program, you dont need to be worried to go to the movie along with all your family members or friends or even your beloved one, i guarantee they will enjoy it very much. Full of meaning and lesson of life, this movie offers lots of motivation for us and teach us never to give up to reach whatever dream we have as Chris Gardner said to his son"dont ever let somebody tells you that you can't do something even me, .......if you want something, go and get it, fill it". (ok chris...I'll remember your words, i hope i have a bravery and consistency as yours to pursue my dreams).
There is also wiping tears moment you'll experience when they have nowhere places to go and even when they have it....it means staying in a toilet though. Therefore i suggest you to bring tissues while watching this movie ( my fault was i didn't bring it when watched the movie yesterday....no wonder when a lots of tears fallen from my swollen eyes, my friends Ita & Irfan just couldn't stop teasing me after the movie finished). Whaaaaaa....beginilah kalau jadi pribadi yg terlalu sensitif dan peka, hiks..hiks..hiks...(I've been touched deeply, dudes).
