"Why, oh why, did I go to see this movie in the theater without bringing an industrial-size box of tissues? (I'll regret that choice for the rest of my life.) The film has so much going for it: it's based on a true story, it stars a real-life father and son (Will and Jaden Smith), and it packs a serious emotional punch. Needless to say there are a lot of crushing scenes, but the part when Chris is struggling to keep the bathroom door closed overnight so he and his son can have a place to sleep . . . damn. Even as I type this, I'm tearing up. The love he has for his son, and the fact he'll go through hell and back to give him a happy life, is beautiful."
