All Jamie Foxx Movies Ranked by Tomatometer

A recording career and starring roles on In Living Color and his very own sitcom sound like they would have been enough to keep Jamie Foxx out of the movie game during the ’90s. But indeed, Foxx the multi-hyphenate found time to debut as a comedy movie lead for The Truth About Cats & Dogs in 1996 and then delivered his first dramatic performance in Oliver Stone’s Any Given Sunday three years later. But that was all a prelude to his big 2004, when Foxx was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award with the Michael Mann/Tom Cruise thriller Collateral and took home Oscar gold that night for Best Actor, thanks to the musical biopic Ray.

He teamed up with Mann again for Miami Vice in 2006, the same year of musical sensation Dreamgirls‘ arrival. Due Date, Valentine’s Day, Rio, and Horrible Bosses were four $100 million-grossing box office hits in a row, so with his reputation as a guy who can get awards and put butts in seats cemented, there was only one place to go left: Casa de QT. Working with Quentin Tarantino produced the brassy Western Django Unchained, which would go on to become the director’s biggest B.O. draw.

Django would be Foxx’s last Certified Fresh movie for a while, through a stretch of years that has included The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Robin Hood, and White House Down. 2017’s Baby Driver brought back some of that critical acclaim, and so has his latest: Just Mercy, a true story legal drama featuring Foxx as Walter McMillian, who was imprisoned for a murder in 1986 he did not commit. Co-starring Michael B. Jordan and Brie Larson, see where the critics place Just Mercy as we rank all Jamie Foxx movies by Tomatometer!

Directed By: Baran bo Odar


Bait (2000)

Adjusted Score: 28.409%

Synopsis: In this action comedy, a crook trying to go straight finds himself lured back to crime by the police, without... [More]
Directed By: Antoine Fuqua

Adjusted Score: 30.971%

Directed By: F. Gary Gray


Annie (2014)

Adjusted Score: 34.123%
Critics Consensus: The new-look Annie hints at a progressive take on a well-worn story, but smothers its likable cast under clichés, cloying cuteness, and a distasteful materialism.
Synopsis: A Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in... [More]
Directed By: Will Gluck

Directed By: Daniel Taplitz

Adjusted Score: 41.035%
Critics Consensus: Horrible Bosses 2 may trigger a few belly laughs among big fans of the original, but all in all, it's a waste of a strong cast that fails to justify its own existence.
Synopsis: The follow-up to the 2011 hit comedy "Horrible Bosses" reunites Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as everyone's favorite... [More]
Directed By: Sean Anders


Due Date (2010)

Adjusted Score: 44.751%
Critics Consensus: Shamelessly derivative and only sporadically funny, Due Date doesn't live up to the possibilities suggested by its talented director and marvelously mismatched stars.

Directed By: Todd Phillips


Robin Hood (2010)

Adjusted Score: 50.724%
Critics Consensus: Ridley Scott's revisionist take on this oft-told tale offers some fine acting and a few gripping action sequences, but it's missing the thrill of adventure that made Robin Hood a legend in the first place.
Synopsis: Director Ridley Scott and actor Russell Crowe reunite for their fifth big-screen outing, a retelling of the Robin Hood legend... [More]
Directed By: Ridley Scott

Adjusted Score: 45.477%

Directed By: Reginald Hudlin


Miami Vice (2006)

Adjusted Score: 53.749%
Critics Consensus: Miami Vice is beautifully shot but the lead characters lack the charisma of their TV series counterparts, and the underdeveloped story is well below the standards of Michael Mann's better films.

Directed By: Michael Mann


Rio 2 (2014)

Adjusted Score: 52.056%
Critics Consensus: Like most sequels, Rio 2 takes its predecessor's basic template and tries to make it bigger -- which means it's even busier, more colorful, and ultimately more exhausting for viewers outside the youthful target demographic.
Synopsis: It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids in RIO 2, after they're hurtled from that... [More]
Directed By: Carlos Saldanha


The Kingdom (2007)

Adjusted Score: 57.253%

Directed By: Peter Berg


White House Down (2013)

Adjusted Score: 59.764%

Synopsis: The White House is under siege in this action thriller from Independence Day director Roland Emmerich and The Amazing Spider-Man's... [More]
Directed By: Roland Emmerich


Any Given Sunday (1999)

Adjusted Score: 57.348%

Directed By: Oliver Stone

Adjusted Score: 63.586%
Critics Consensus: While the cast is outstanding and the special effects are top-notch, the latest installment of the Spidey saga suffers from an unfocused narrative and an overabundance of characters.

Directed By: Marc Webb


The Soloist (2009)

Adjusted Score: 63.629%

Directed By: Joe Wright


Jarhead (2005)

Adjusted Score: 67.759%

Directed By: Sam Mendes

Directed By: Michael Mann


Horrible Bosses (2011)

Adjusted Score: 75.99%

Directed By: Seth Gordon


Rio (2011)

Adjusted Score: 76.375%

Directed By: Michael Lehmann


Collateral (2004)

Adjusted Score: 92.846%
Critics Consensus: Driven by director Michael Mann's trademark visuals and a lean, villainous performance from Tom Cruise, Collateral is a stylish and compelling noir thriller.

Directed By: Michael Mann


Django Unchained (2012)

Adjusted Score: 98.181%
