Why Will Smith’s Golf Movie with Matt Damon Was a Major Turning Point

From “Parents Just Don’t Understand” to his current standing as an A-list star, Will Smith has always seemed unstoppable. The actor has achieved success in just about every facet of the entertainment industry. Much of that, however, is due to his work ethic. In fact, at the height of his fame, Smith stepped outside his comfort zone to protect his movie career.

But the failure of Wild Wild West proved Smith wasn’t infallible.
