Watched The Pursuit of Happyness over the weekend. An inspiring movie, worth watching once over. I thought the kid who acted as Will Smith’s son did a superb job. Will Smith himself was excellent.
Here is a scene I loved. Will Smith, who is without a job and struggling to get by, tells his son that they might possibly go to a football game that weekend. During a conversation, the kid says that his dad had promised him that they would probably go to the game. Here is what ensues.
Will Smith: Probably means that there is a good chance that we are going. Possibly means that we might or we might not.
Will Smith: So what does probably mean?
Son: It means there is a good chance.
Will Smith: And what does possibly mean?
Son: I know what it means! It means we are not going to the game!
