    It's a joke. I didn't mean to make you cry again.

    Pursuit of Happyness. Everything the man put into and endured trying to make a better life for his kid, the scene where the son drops his Captain America, the only toy he had through all this stuff, sleeping in the subway bathroom while security beats on the door.... all makes me very thankful for my blessings and realize that we haven't ever had it near that hard.
    Cool Runnings. Weird choice, but the team carrying the sled over the finish line is very inspiring, even if it's a huge exaggeration. "Ya dead mon?" "No mon, I'm not dead."

    That wasn't security beating the door. It was some homeless guy. But I agree with you on the movie. Not once did he ask for a handout and he became a self made man. He also has a cameo at the end of the movie.

    It's a pretty famous picture - even "demotivational" posters have been made out of it. :p

    Yup. In that case, it was a HAPPY ending.

    Yes I know it's alexandra pelosi , but still. This documentary contains almost no narration and very little of Alexandra's voice at all. It's almost 100% in the words of the children and parents of homeless familes living in motels.

    I've lived on the edge when I was a child, grew up around people living on the edge, and as an adult I've worked with people living right on the edge and it breaks my heart to see these kids, in their own words, expressing the struggles of millions of people.

    I got choked up watching this documentary.

Sad to see a guy who was at one time on top of the world relegated to living in a trailer park and working in bingo halls and armories. This is the side of the business most people don't know about. Mick Foley said that this movie hit the nail right on the head. Watch the documentary Beyond the Mat and the segment on Jake Roberts and you'll see where they got the idea for this movie.
    This movie was extremely touching. The relationship between the main character and his daughter, and the way he gives himself away in the ring was incredible.
