Rags-to-riches tale is predictable but well-acted.

Movie Metropolis

Muccino skates along the edge of melodrama in this sweet film, with the tone just bordering on the syrupy, at times. That makes it a good, but not a great film to watch.

Will Smith exudes an endearing charm reminiscent of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, here, so expect to laugh as much as you cry during this touching tearjerker.

it doesn't do anything new or fancy or innovative, but it is solid and reassuring, and what it does it does extremely well
