I like the trailer so I will be plunking down my cash this week [or next depending on my next day off] to see the film only because it seems to suggest a heroic vision of a man looking to succeed without a handout or some sort of collectivistic mentality. :)

The movie is a true story of a man named Christopher Gardner who overcame tremendous obstacles in life and became a very successful broker in Wall Street. It is an inspirational movie without failing to neglect the soft spot of the poor in the man. Gardner shows his goodwill and determination by helping the needed people of South Africa. According to his Biography. I quote:

"Which is why, on this October day, Gardner keeps working those phones. It's why he's already begun writing his next book. It's why he's in talks with several networks about doing a primetime show, and why, earlier this year, he sold a minority stake in Gardner Rich to a major hedge fund. But most of all, it's why he's about to close a second round of financing -- reportedly to launch a private-equity fund
focused solely on investments in South Africa."

I saw this movie and must say that it is very entertaining. You really can't help but like Gardner, played by Will Smith, in this movie. It's really well done and I would recommend it to anyone.
