Will Smith has fame, fortune, and a beautiful family, but that's not enough—he wants you to know what a beneficent guy he is too. In this contrived hunk of feel-good he plays an IRS auditor who runs around doing extravagant good turns for people: he grants a delinquent taxpayer a six-month extension, moves a battered woman and her children into his vacant oceanfront home, even donates bone marrow for a dying man without asking for anesthetic. Of course, anyone this saintly must be atoning for some foul crime in his past, but when screenwriter Grant Nieporte finally discloses what it is after an endless tease, it hardly merits the character's self-flagellation. Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness) directed; with Rosario Dawson, Woody Harrelson, Michael Ealy, and Barry Pepper. PG-13.
