    some doctor's children become doctors. some plumber's children become plumbers. some entertainer's children become entertainers... paltrow, jolie, osbourne, ross, cole, sheen, aniston... if they are talented and don't derail on drugs the sky's the limit.

    I mean, it was certainly entertaining and fun, but it's not the "second coming." Geez.

  • NO BRAINER | May 28, 2013 8:38 PM

    DAMN! This is what I'm f****** talking about. Who here is saying this is the second coming? I've seen S&A'ites praise a lot less quality stuff much more than this. It was fun. Leave it alone. Jeez.

    I love it! Just... just awesome!
    Now all I need is for someone to 'Uncle Phil' Jazz out of a door and all will be right in the world.

    Love the old school nods! Will does not play around or slack when it comes to publicity. Drawing every card in the deck. Full tilt boogie, high energy, grind till opening day. I can't fault someone for working hard.

  • NO BRAINER | May 28, 2013 8:35 PM

    That's the thing a lot of black people in this industry do not understand. But, whatever...

    Smith's steady work overseas means that his movies almost always double, triple, sometimes quadruple the domestic box office with international ticket sales. Although it is a sequel based upon a well known classic scifi novel, I looked at the take of a similar movie, Dwayne Johnson's Journey 2 the Mysterious Island. $100 mil domestic, $222 mil foreign for $322 mil total. The wildcards with After Earth are Shyalaman's direction and the storyline.

    I've got to admit I enjoyed the heck out of that. Good times.

  • Mark & Darla | May 26, 2013 4:28 PMReply

    Jump niggers jump, jump for the people to go see your movie.

  • NO BRAINER | May 28, 2013 8:34 PM

    SMDH. Can't black people just let loose and have fun without other black people criticizing them? God, we're so ugly inside.

  • Campbell | May 26, 2013 11:43 PM

    And you would do what?

  • NO BRAINER | May 26, 2013 1:18 AMReply

    LOL! That was great. Born entertainers.

  • miktal | May 25, 2013 1:30 PMReply

    Is, After Earth really that bad???

  • saadiyah | May 24, 2013 9:35 PMReply

    This was fantastic! Made my day. I love the way both Willow and Jaden are down for their father's silliness! They're both born entertainers!

    Love the Smith family!!!!

    I don't like the way Will Smith has been trying to shove his offspring through the throats of movie goers... but this was good fun. The man sure knows how to work an audience.

  • Donella | May 28, 2013 12:56 PM

    The next best move for Jaden Smith is a role as part of an ensemble of actors similar in age. I think he's gotten a good start, but its time to grow stronger into his own identity and talent, rather than follow or imitate Will Smith. Emilio Estevez starred in about seven movies with his father, Martin Sheen, but he still has a separate identity and presence in the industry from his father, probably because of his participation in the Brat Pack, ensemble work with actors close in age, talent, skill that forced him to grow stronger.

  • Marie | May 28, 2013 12:17 PM

    Agreed, MK. I don't understand how people DON'T see that they're being shoved down our throats. Instead of allowing the audience to discover the Mini Smiths on their own via their exceptional performances, they've starred in big budget movies bankrolled by their superstar dad. Of course we don't have to see any of their work, that point is moot and doesn't deal with the issue of parents pushing their kids to be stars. What irritates me about Smith (and Oprah and Tyler Perry) is that he's not using his stardom and power to find the next GREAT young, black actors. Instead, he defaults to his own kids. And didn't Willow tell her father she didn't want to do the Annie movie, that instead she wanted to just be a regular kid? And didn't Will and Jada have some marital trouble a few years ago that was attributed to Will pushing his kids in show business? Sorry, I will not be supporting the Smith family's push to be mediocre megastars. The Jacksons were super talented. The Smiths don't even come close.

  • MK | May 26, 2013 4:44 AM

    Jeeezz, people. Relax.
    It's just an opinion.

  • saadiyah | May 24, 2013 9:36 PM

    Yes how are they shoving their kids down your throat? Both kids have talent and like Nadia said, no one is making you watch them!

    I love seeing the Smith kids!!!

  • Nadia | May 24, 2013 9:01 PM

    I don't understand when folks say he's "shoving his offspring down our throats." How is he doing that? You don't have to see the movies. You don't have to listen to the songs, or watch the interviews. You don't have to do a damn thing. SMH

  • August Wasoba | May 24, 2013 8:09 PMReply

    Mr. Fourth of July indeed! A born entertainer

  • Campbell | May 24, 2013 7:48 PMReply

    Only Will Smith will do anything to sell a movie.
    Hollywood's golden goose.

  • Campbell | May 25, 2013 11:02 PM

    my comment was not negative, Jessica.... your interpretation was.

    For there is no one I know that has the global marketing mass market appeal in film similar to Will Smith, who can sing, dance, act, rap, and do the soundtrack to the movie with his offspring.....
    What the hell is negative about that?

  • jessica | May 25, 2013 1:57 PM

    Really? We have seen actors do sooooo much worse to sell movies. At least this was entertaining and fun. Stop being negative!
