All Jennifer Lopez Movies Ranked

The player: Jennifer Lopez. The plan: Hustlers. The heist: Making off with awards season hype. Strictly looking at her filmography and its attendant Tomatometers, Lopez isn’t top billing when it comes to Oscar contention, but her new film, Wall Street femme heist flick Hustlers, is just the vehicle for a gold-studded getaway.

Before Hustlers, Lopez hadn’t had a Fresh movie since 1998, though her 21st century filmography still includes commercial hits (The Wedding Planner, Monster-in-Law, The Boy Next Door) among notorious bombs like Gigli. And The Cell certainly has its fans.

With Hustlers drawing up praise similar to her ’90s star-making hits like Out of Sight and Selena, we’re taking a whole u-turn on her career as we rank all Jennifer Lopez movies by Tomatometer!


Gigli (2003)

Adjusted Score: 11.234%
Critics Consensus: Bizarre and clumsily plotted, Gigli is a mess. As for its stars, Affleck and Lopez lack chemistry.

Directed By: Martin Brest

Adjusted Score: 15.638%
Critics Consensus: The Boy Next Door may get a few howls out of fans of stalker thrillers, but for most viewers, it won't even rise to "so bad it's good" status.

Directed By: Rob Cohen

Adjusted Score: 18.994%
Critics Consensus: Instead of being light and charming, this romantic comedy is heavy-handed and contrived in its execution. Also, it's too unoriginal.
Synopsis: This lighthearted romantic comedy in the tradition of Runaway Bride (1999) casts Jennifer Lopez in the Julia Roberts mold. Lopez... [More]
Directed By: Adam Shankman


Monster-in-Law (2005)

Adjusted Score: 23.487%
Critics Consensus: While Jane Fonda steals the movie in her return to the screen, a tired script and flimsy performances make this borderline comedy fall flat.

Directed By: Robert Luketic

Adjusted Score: 22.03%
Critics Consensus: Unoriginal and unfunny, Ice Age: Collision Course offers further proof that not even the healthiest box office receipts can keep a franchise from slouching toward creative extinction.

Jack (1996)

Adjusted Score: 19.234%
Critics Consensus: Robin Williams' childlike energy is channeled in all the wrong places with Jack, a bizarre tragedy that aims for uplift but sinks deep into queasy schmaltz.

Directed By: Francis Ford Coppola


The Back-up Plan (2010)

Adjusted Score: 21.943%

Directed By: Alan Poul


Money Train (1995)

Adjusted Score: 23.474%
Critics Consensus: Loud, incoherent, and aimless, Money Train reunites Snipes and Harrelson -- and proves that starring duos are far from immune to the law of diminishing returns.
Synopsis: Actors Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes team up for the third time in this actioner that has them playing brothers... [More]
Directed By: Joseph Ruben


Enough (2002)

Adjusted Score: 25.154%
Critics Consensus: Enough exploits the serious issue of spousal abuse to make an illogical, unintelligent thriller.
Synopsis: Working class waitress Slim finds her life transformed when she marries wealthy contractor Mitch. She settles into an idyllic suburban... [More]
Directed By: Michael Apted

Adjusted Score: 27.421%
Critics Consensus: The cast is stocked with likable performers, but What to Expect When You're Expecting is too disjointed -- and too reliant on stock rom-com cliches -- to live up to its distinguished literary namesake.
Synopsis: Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane... [More]
Directed By: Kirk Jones


El Cantante (2007)

Adjusted Score: 28.059%
Critics Consensus: El Cantante adheres to the most basic conventions of the musical biopic, rendering it indistinguishable from others of its ilk.

Directed By: Leon Ichaso


Angel Eyes (2001)

Adjusted Score: 37.07%
Critics Consensus: Though the earlier part of the movie suggested something more, the movie turns out to be nothing more than a schmaltzy romance.
Synopsis: Jennifer Lopez stars in this gritty, emotional drama as police officer Sharon Pogue, who covers up a painful past with... [More]
Directed By: Luis Mandoki

Adjusted Score: 41.462%
Critics Consensus: Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D has moments of charm and witty slapstick, but it often seems content to recycle ideas from the previous films.
Synopsis: Scrat's nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he's been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences -... [More]

Adjusted Score: 42.984%
Critics Consensus: Too blandly generic, Maid in Manhattan also suffers from a lack of chemistry between Lopez and Fiennes.

Directed By: Wayne Wang


Anaconda (1997)

Adjusted Score: 42.61%

Directed By: Luis Llosa


Lila & Eve (2015)

Adjusted Score: 40.683%
Critics Consensus: Lila & Eve gets some mileage out of its formidable stars, with Viola Davis in particular proving that she will commandingly commit to any material, but this is a revenge flick served stale due to a lackluster script.
Synopsis: A tense and exciting film, LILA AND EVE is directed by Charles Stone III (DRUMLINE), and tells the story of... [More]
Directed By: Charles Stone III


Parker (2013)

Adjusted Score: 44.551%
Critics Consensus: Jason Statham is game as usual, but Parker is a thoroughly generic and convoluted heist movie.

Directed By: Taylor Hackford


Jersey Girl (2004)

Adjusted Score: 46.747%

Directed By: Kevin Smith


The Cell (2000)

Adjusted Score: 50.907%
Critics Consensus: The Cell offers disturbing, stunning eye candy, but its visual pleasures are no match for a confused storyline that undermines the movie's inventive aesthetic.
Synopsis: Within the confines of an abandoned rural farmhouse, Carl Stargher, a psychologically disturbed killer has built The Cell, a glass-encased... [More]
Directed By: Tarsem Singh


Shall We Dance (2004)

Adjusted Score: 50.127%
Critics Consensus: The cast is warmly appealing, but with the loss of cultural context and addition of big-name celebrities, this American version loses the nuances of the original.
Synopsis: Directed by Peter Chelsom, this film is the English-language remake of Masayuki Suo's 1995 romantic comedy of the same name;... [More]
Directed By: Peter Chelsom


Second Act (2018)

Adjusted Score: 49.032%
Critics Consensus: Second Act proves Jennifer Lopez remains as magnetic as ever on the big screen; unfortunately, the movie's muddled story isn't always worthy of her gifts.

Directed By: Peter Segal


Home (2015)

Adjusted Score: 54.596%
Critics Consensus: Colorful, silly, and utterly benign, Home is a passable diversion, but there's no shortage of superior animated alternatives.
Synopsis: When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own... [More]
Directed By: Tim Johnson

Adjusted Score: 56.418%
Critics Consensus: A story of disjointed family members yearning for true emotional depth, An Unfinished Life teeters between overtly saccharine sentiments and moments of real intimacy.

Directed By: Lasse Hallstrom


U-Turn (1997)

Adjusted Score: 62.61%
Critics Consensus: U-Turn is a lurid, stylish lark that boasts striking moments but lacks the focus and weight of Oliver Stone best work.
Synopsis: Oliver Stone takes a breather from politics with this violent and frequently very funny black comedy about a gambler whose... [More]
Directed By: Oliver Stone


Blood and Wine (1997)

Adjusted Score: 62.238%

Selena (1997)

Adjusted Score: 67.321%

Directed By: Gregory Nava


Antz (1998)

Adjusted Score: 97.018%

Directed By: Eric Darnell, Tim Johnson


Out of Sight (1998)

Adjusted Score: 97.76%

Directed By: Steven Soderbergh
