19. Wild Wild West (1999)
As much of a trainwreck this based-on-an-old-TV-show movie notoriously is -- let's move past the giant, mechanical spider -- it’s not entirely Smith’s fault. If anything, he made the whole thing tolerable by playing badass army captain/government agent Jim West with a straight face. The whole movie may not be something he holds with the rest of his exemplary work, but at least he was good in it.
18. Seven Pounds (2008)
In his second collaboration with The Pursuit of Happyness director Gabriele Muccino, Smith is a tormented man who decides to kill himself and donate his vital organs to decent people (including Rosario Dawson, who becomes a love interest in the movie) to atone for an act of vehicular manslaughter. It would’ve been a nice drama if he didn’t decide to kill himself by getting constantly stung by a jellyfish, which plays a little goofy.
17. Concussion (2015)
Smith’s latest attempt at Oscar gold happened last winter, where he played the real-life, Nigerian forensic pathologist who discovered that football players can die from having one-too-many concussions on the field. Another instance where Smith plays the only noble character in a movie overflowing with douchebags who suffocate the dramatic investigation.
16. Men in Black II (2002)
Hey, the 1997 original was an across-the-board hit, so let’s make a sequel! Men in Black II is less spirited than the original, with Smith and Jones going up against an evil alien that’s embodied the body of a tight-clothes-wearing Lara Flynn Boyle, nor is it as imaginative. But I’m sure it’s something you can watch one Saturday afternoon on cable, while you’re doing housework.
15. I, Robot (2004)
Smith stars in this adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s short-story collection, playing a futuristic detective (with a cyborg arm!) out to clear the name of a robot accused of murder. Out of all the titles on this list, this one is guilty for being a movie you know you saw, but have no recollection when or where you saw it.
