Ali. Will Smith has a real warmth and charisma to him, but most of his films have little appeal to me.

The majority of them are just Popcorn fun, but I find some of them at least entertaining, even if they are predictable.

I guess it's I Am Legend for me. I liked his other films more as a child but I'll give props to Smith for Legend based on that is was pretty much all solo for his character.

Men in Black, but pretty much everything he does is entertaining to me, even the more panned movies like MIB2 and Wild Wild West.

Its fashionable around here to lay hate on Smith; I'm not one who adheres to that mindset. I thought he did an incredible job with I Am Legend.

Actually a tough one here. For all around "enjoy the movie" choice I guess Men in Black. For "enjoy Will Smith performance" choice, I'd go with Ali. There may be hate for Will here due to his continued popularity and "popcorn" nature of his films, but I do enjoy them for what they are.

I voted Men in Black as my favorite since you asked and that's what the title of the poll is....however, I might consider the best to be Pursuit of Happyness.

I love most of his movies for that fun nature, but Independence Day is a favorite for many other reasons than just Smith. Of the titles listed, the only one I haven't seen is The Pursuit Of Happyness.

Also haven't seen Bagger Vance, Jersey Girl, and the majority of Wild Wild West, but it's inevitable....except for the rest of the West. Thanks to "An Evening with Kevin Smith" I understand the giant mechanical spider.

Men in Black was probably the most overrated movie I've seen in years. It's fun I guess but I've never understood the film's popularity.

Bad Boys and Bad Boys II are pure adrenaline, and Smith was on fire with those.

I Am Legend was fascinating.

I, Robot and Enemy Of The State were great, and Ali was a classic case of an actor transformed into a real person and not a fictional character.

Of the titles listed, the only one I haven't seen is The Pursuit Of Happyness.
Haven't seen Bagger Vance, Jersey Girl, and the majority of Wild Wild West.

You know what? I'm not a Will Smith hater by any means but looking at this list made me realize that he's done a lot of films that are very entertaining, but not many that are considered excellent. That being said, my favorite is probably Men in Black. It's the most enjoyable film of his, IMO, and I've always had a soft spot for it. Close second would be ID4.

The movie where he says "aww hell naw".



My serious vote was for "Men in Black" but "Bad Boys" is a close 2nd.

I'm surprised there's so many write in's for I, Robot as I remember a lot of negative remarks about the movie when it came out (I enjoyed it quite a bit).

I eat up anything he's in with a spoon, but Men in Black is definitely my favorite.
