Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Pursuit of Happyness...

Caught in a vicious cycle of overdue bills and a lack of funds, Chris Gardner finds himself coping with irate landlords, an exasperated spouse, and growing financial demands. His money issues cause him to stiff a taxi driver who in turn threatens to kill him. He also argues with a property-owner and gets into a scuffle in the line-up at a shelter. His wife is seen in her bra while dressing for work. Later she is shown smoking. A sexual expletive is written on a storefront wall and his young son repeats the word, but his dad tells him not to say it again. Other infrequent profanities are also included.
