    "The Fresh Prince series is Will Smith's original claim to fame, and unlike many mid-90s sitcoms, it really holds up! This series originally aired in 1990, and I grew up with it. I was really happy to re-watch it as an adult; there was a lot about the humor I didn't get as a kid. This is worth the watch!"

    "This is an amazing movie! I don't usually like dramas, but this is worth watching whether you like them or not. A friend told me about it & I'm so thankful he did. You will witness the highest form of selflessness in this movie as will smiths character finds people who are truly good (not just on the surface). Amazing!"

    "Focus is a solid Will Smith movie, but by no means is it one of the best Will Smith movies, overall. It is a solid crime and comedy-based drama, but not a legendary project. I would recommend it. But it is not among the best of Will Smith."

    "Since i have watched this movie, i find life is simple with happiness, but most of people can not actually be happy due to the situation in real life , that's why we need to pursue it, we need to be motivative, be encouraged. We should not say give up easily like Chris Gardner played by Will Smith."

    "Who can resist Will Smith at his good-natured and hysterically funny best? He's a truly nice man in this flick who uses his gifts to help the unfortunate, fairly undateable, "average" guy. Of course, along the way, He...meets the right girl for him. But misunderstandings, circumstances, and an outrageously funny cooking class, intervene to get in the way of love. It's a feel good--laugh hard--couple of hours of movie enjoyment. And If your husband can watch with you and maybe pick up a couple of Kevin James awesome dance moves? All the better! Eva Mendes makes a believable magazine journalist sufficiently jaded about guys and their 'lines', yet willing to take a chance on Will. And Amber Valleta is sweet and funny as the dream girl of the lowly accountant."
