Wild Wild West
Although Wild Wild West was Will Smith's first real failure of a movie it still managed to gross more than 100 million at the domestic Box Office. The storyline for Wild Wild West was weak, the chemistry between Will Smith and Kevin Kline was lacking, and the film provided few laughs. The movie did however have some pretty amazing special efx. Even Will Smith himself acknowledges the averageness of Wild Wild West but he has since shown that when Will Smith falls down he will get back up.

Kevin Kline plays fellow agent and crackerjack inventor Artemus Gordon, teamed with West on a daring assignment: Stop legless Dr. Arliss Loveless (Kenneth Branagh) and his diabolical plot for a Disunited States of America. Salma Hayek is mysterious adventuress Rita Escobar. And all manner of geared-up 1860s gadgets - from belt-buckle derringers to surprise-packed billiard balls to a walking, eight-story, steam-and-steel tarantula - help make Wild Wild West a Wow Wow West!
Well that huge mechanical spider looked pretty good...
