It's a bad year to be Will Smith.
The actor's summer blockbuster Suicide Squad was considered a chaotic mess by critics (though still became a box office hit) — and his year-end Oscar bait film Collateral Beauty is shaping up to be the WORST reviewed film of the year!
The reviews came out for the star-studded drama ahead of its Friday release, and most failed to see any beauty in the "horrifyingly yucky" tear-jerker — with critics claiming its cast (featuring Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, and Edward Norton) suffers from "actor abuse"!

Smith plays a New York ad exec who grieves over the loss of his daughter by writing personal letters to death, time, and love in so he can forge a personal connection with the universe.
While that concept has potential to draw some real emotion, most critics felt a manipulated sentimentality brought by the talented cast acting their best (except Smith, that is) in a story void of any real emotion! Ouch!
