Movie Info

Born into impoverished beginnings in East LA, at times homeless and living in his car, John Paul DeJoria spent his early adulthood in and out of motorcycle gangs including the Satan Slaves and Hells Angels. After losing his brother in a horrific motorcycle accident, JP transformed his life and built a wildly successful line of hair care products with artist Paul Mitchell. Proving his success wasn't just a fluke, JP then created the largest tequila brand in the world - Patron. GOOD FORTUNE reveals the success secret of one of America's most celebrated entrepreneurs: giving back. A modern day Robin Hood (without the stealing), JP spends his life creating back-to-work programs for the homeless, fighting whale poachers in the Arctic and working on over 100 other philanthropic ventures. His motto is "Success unshared is failure." The son of Greek immigrants, JP is a pioneer of "conscious capitalism" (also known as "the triple bottom line" - people, planet and profit). GOOD FORTUNE tells his inspiring life story and shows how he uses business to make the world a better place.

Critic Reviews for Good Fortune

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Too bad, then, that Good Fortune is such a doggedly hagiographic nonfiction portrait, reducing his entire saga and ethos to PR-style slogans.

The movie itself plays more like a corporate recruitment video - or an extended episode of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" - than a deep, discerning dive into an American success story.

He's a pleasure to spend time with, which is one reason this movie goes down so easy.

It's laudable that DeJoria is so sincere about giving back and paying it forward, but it's a damn shame this film didn't offer even the slightest counterpoint to his idyllic take on the nature of success.

No matter where you fall on the economic spectrum, John Paul's story is the inspiration for everyone to give.

August 4, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Whilst the portrayal of John Paul DeJoria is arguably one sided, Good Fortune is a heart-warming rags to riches story, overcoming both social and economical adversity.
