While audiences got to know him first as a rapper and then in the title role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith quickly became a major star on the big screen. For years, he was a consistent box-office draw, but he also earned critical acclaim for his eclectic performances in movies like Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness. That doesn't mean, of course, that he hasn't had some stumbles throughout his career. So, without further ado, it's time to take a look at the baddest from this Bad Boy with the worst Will Smith movies of all time.

We consulted Rotten Tomatoes' ranking of every Will Smith movie, then headed to the bottom of the pile to find his biggest clunkers. It's worth noting that the site ranks films by an algorithm that takes the number of reviews and critics surveyed into account, so the order isn't just determined by score.
