This is a slick studio production with a huge movie star and top professionals occupying every production role so that the polish of this well-made film makes even homelessness look neat and tidy.

The relationship between Chris and his diminutive namesake is at the core of the film - the determination to be there for his son, no matter what; the mentoring, the pair's goofy, lovely banter. And Smith and his bright-eyed boy pull it off brilliantly.

I don't think I've seen a mainstream movie get fatherhood so right since Kramer vs . Kramer: the fear, the indulgence, the snappishness, the pre-occupied uh-huhs as a child natters about his day, the steamrolling waves of love.
