All Blake Lively Movies Ranked by Tomatometer

After her major feature debut in 2005’s The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants, Blake Lively hopped over to television as the lead in Gossip Girl, the CW teen drama fixture that ran for six seasons. Though busy with the show, Lively was still able to turn in a few memorable appearances in films, like the Certified Fresh crime saga The Town, and Green Lantern, where she would meet future husband Ryan Reynolds.

Though Gossip Girl ended in 2012, it would be several years before her film career would resume in earnest, starting with the romantic fantasy The Age of Adaline. But it would be shark movie The Shallows that would propel her to movie stardom. 2018’s A Simple Favor, where she goes tête-à-tête with Anna Kendrick, was another critical and box office hit. In her latest movie, The Rhythm Section, Lively goes on a one-woman mission to take down those responsible for a plane crash that killed her family. See where it places as we rank Blake Lively’s best movies (and her worst) by Tomatometer!

Adjusted Score: 28.516%

#10

Accepted (2006)

#8
Adjusted Score: 60.928%

#6
Adjusted Score: 70.721%

Directed By: Rebecca Miller

#5

Café Society (2016)

Directed By: Woody Allen

#4
Adjusted Score: 81.101%
Critics Consensus: This adaptation of a beloved novel charms with its heartwarming tale of friendship and young adulthood; realistic portrayals of the lives of teenage girls lend the comedy-drama sincerity, and may capture hearts outside the female-centric demographic.
