I saw the movie yesterday, I am definitely convinced that the critics are out to get Will. The movie is not a masterpiece but it is not bad at all. It is moving, uplifting. Has funny moments, sad ones and moments that make you think. I feel it is original and different from all that is out there in the theaters nowadays. It has a nice message. The actors were really great in it, and Will again did a great performance like on Pursuit of happiness and concussion. I would not give it a 10/10, but I think a 7-8 out of 10 it can get, especially when you see it not as a Will Smith movie, but as a film of its genre. GO SEE IT FOR YOURSELF.
