    If Will Smith had to pick out a favorite from his diverse filmography, the actor said it would be the film that went down in history as one of the best biographical films ever made; ‘Pursuit Of Happyness‘.

    Speaking about the film while on an episode of Hot Ones, Smith said, “I think the best individual movie, all around, that I’ve ever made is The Pursuit of Happyness.” Adding, “Right behind that is the first Men In Black. The direction, cinematography and music.” When asked about which one he had the most fun making he said, “I think among them the most fun I’ve ever had making a movie is, like, Bad Boys and Aladdin, like, just the most, the most fun… If I had to put four of them in a time capsule it would be The Pursuit of Happyness, the first Men In Black, I Am Legend, and probably King Richard.”

    It makes complete sense for Smith to hail the film as one of his best as it brought him an Academy Award nomination for ‘Best Actor.’ Starring alongside his son Jaden, Smith plays stockbroker Chris Gardner, a former homeless salesman in San Francisco who now owns a brokerage and business.
