Clément Cuyer appreciates all genres, from good hard-hitting horror films to schoolboy comedy. He is an “old man” of AlloCiné, journalist in the editorial staff for more than two passionate decades. “Too old for this bullshit”? Oh never!

American actor Will Smith has just revealed which film he prefers in his filmography, but also which he considers the worst. Verdict?

When Will Smith takes a critical look at his own filmography … At the GQ microphone, the American star judges as well as his two best films are, equally, the first installment of the Men in Black and In Search of Happiness saga, a big blockbuster, huge global box office success, and an intimate drama that earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. “For various reasons, these two films are in my eyes almost perfect”, considers the actor.

More fun, Will Smith also reveals which of his films is, in his eyes, … the worst! Verdict? The comedy Wild Wild West, released in theaters in 1999 and in which he co-starred with Kevin Kline. “This movie is just a thorn in the side”, laughs the actor. “Seeing me in leather leggings … I don’t like it.”

The western, a relative failure at the American box office with only 114 million dollars of receipts on the counter, had been freshly received by the critics. He had notably been nominated eight times for the Razzie Awards, the famous “ceremony of the worst”. Note, however, that Wild Wild West had allowed Will Smith to achieve great musical success with the eponymous song, interpreted by him.

Will Smith, who could soon reprise his character from Deadshot in a new Suicide Squad, will be showing on December 1 of The Williams Method. A feature film in which he plays the father of tennis players Serena and Venus Williams.
