    Will Smith can't act. Aside from Gerald McRainey's abominable overacting (you can tell he was giddy just to be in a movie and handed a prop gun), Will Smith was really the worst thing about Focus.

    This is not to say that Will Smith is a bad actor. That is not the case, Gerald McRainey is bad. Will Smith just isn't acting…
