This Movie Was A Mistake
21 August 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I think this movie was a mistake. Will Smith was miscast as the lead. Kenneth Branaugh gave an over the top performance. The rest of the cast performed adequately. However, overall the production was overdone. There were a few amusing moments and amazingly, the film made over $199 million dollars worldwide.

I wondered why some of the users made such scathing comments about the lead, Will Smith. It seems that the protestations were overly vehement and even offensive. I find too often this is the typical response to TV comedians making the transition to film. I think TV comedians get a bad rap when making the transition to film.

Anyway, although I agree that the film is lacking in many respects, there is no need to bash the lead, namely Will Smith, who has proven that he is growing as an actor.
