All Bradley Cooper Movies Ranked

After breaking into the mainstream as smarm personified in Wedding Crashers, Bradley Cooper seemed poised for a career filled with rude comedies and rom-coms — and for a few years, his filmography threatened to live down to those limited expectations, with stuff like Failure to Launch and All About Steve surrounding his follow-up hit The Hangover. Once he had half a chance, however, Cooper flashed his dramatic chops, giving audiences a feel for what he could really do in Limitless before vaulting into the Oscar-nominated A-list with American SniperSilver Linings Playbook, and American Hustle. Factor in his MCU stint as the lovably misanthropic Rocket in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it’s clear we’ve seen just the tip of what this multi-hyphenate talent can do. For further proof, here’s a look at all Bradley Cooper movies, rounded up and sorted by Tomatometer!


All About Steve (2009)

Adjusted Score: 10.159%
Critics Consensus: All About Steve is an oddly creepy, sour film, featuring a heroine so desperate and peculiar that audiences may be more likely to pity than root for her.

Directed By: Phil Traill

Directed By: Susanne Bier


Valentine's Day (2010)

Directed By: Garry Marshall


Aloha (2015)

Adjusted Score: 26.005%

Directed By: Cameron Crowe


Case 39 (2010)

Adjusted Score: 22.629%

Directed By: Christian Alvart

Adjusted Score: 27.896%
Critics Consensus: Less a comedy than an angrily dark action thriller, The Hangover Part III diverges from the series' rote formula but offers nothing compelling in its place.

Directed By: Todd Phillips


The Words (2012)

Adjusted Score: 28.355%
Critics Consensus: Neither as clever nor as interesting as it appears to think it is, The Words maroons its talented stars in an overly complex, dramatically inert literary thriller that's ultimately a poor substitute for a good book.
Synopsis: Starring Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde and Zoë Saldana, the layered romantic drama The Words follows young... [More]

Adjusted Score: 28.938%
Critics Consensus: The few comic gags sprinkled throughout the movie fail to spice up this formulaic rom-com.

Directed By: Tom Dey


Burnt (2015)

Adjusted Score: 33.751%

Directed By: John Wells

Adjusted Score: 39.932%
Critics Consensus: Wet Hot American Summer's incredibly talented cast is too often outmatched by a deeply silly script that misses its targets at least as often as it skewers them.
Synopsis: The setting is Camp Firewood, the year 1981. It's the last day before everyone goes back to the real world,... [More]
Directed By: David Wain

Adjusted Score: 40.885%
Critics Consensus: A crueler, darker, raunchier carbon copy of the first installment, The Hangover Part II lacks the element of surprise -- and most of the joy -- that helped make the original a hit.
Synopsis: In The Hangover Part II, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to... [More]
Directed By: Todd Phillips

Synopsis: Some of the world's most-respected directors align forces to pay tribute to the city of the New York in this... [More]

Adjusted Score: 46.228%
Critics Consensus: Despite the best efforts of a talented cast, He's Just Not That Into You devotes too little time to each of its protagonists, thus reducing them to stereotypes.
Synopsis: Ken Kwapis' adaptation of Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo's best-selling self-help book He's Just Not That Into You follows the... [More]
Directed By: Ken Kwapis


Yes Man (2008)

Adjusted Score: 51.662%

Directed By: Peyton Reed


The A-Team (2010)

Adjusted Score: 55.507%

Directed By: Joe Carnahan


Hit & Run (2012)

Adjusted Score: 52.732%
Critics Consensus: Though Hit & Run has some surprisingly oft-kilter filmmaking, the action doesn't add to much and the writing's a bit smug.
Synopsis: Hit and Run is a comedy about a young couple (Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard) that risks it all when... [More]
Directed By: David Palmer, Dax Shepard


Joy (2015)

Adjusted Score: 70.477%

Directed By: David O. Russell

Limitless (2011)

Adjusted Score: 75.237%
Critics Consensus: Although its script is uneven, Neil Burger directs Limitless with plenty of visual panache, and Bradley Cooper makes for a charismatic star.

Directed By: Neil Burger

Adjusted Score: 73.409%

Directed By: Ryuhei Kitamura

Directed By: James Gunn (II)

A Star Is Born (2018)
