We gave it a D

Owning the month of July apparently isn’t enough for Smith, who’s slowly looking to claim another whole page of your calendar. Two years, nearly to the day, after his Oscar-nominated performance in Muccino’s The Pursuit of Happyness, the director and star are teaming up again for another December inspirational drama. This time, Smith plays Ben Thomas, a suicidal IRS agent who finds meaning and love — with a terminally ill woman (Dawson) — after co-opting his brother’s identity. The megastar and the Italian director ”are like brothers,” says Ealy (Never Die Alone), who plays Ben’s mysterious brother. ”They play-fistfight all the time.”
Our Two Cents Don’t bet against Smith, in the play-fistfight or at the holiday box office. 12/12
